So this was an amazing escape room. I was really concerned because it's hard to find - it looks like it's part of a residential house. And the entry way isn't particularly modern. But once you get in the room, things changed. The puzzles were...More

We went with this first escape experience because the price couldn't be beat. We had a blast even though we didn't even escape! We had 7 adults (ages 29-74 and 2 children (ages 11 and 13). Everyone was able to contribute and everyone had fun.

We had a really great time trying to solve the mystery as to who stole the painting. The staff member was great. Even though we escaped we solved one clue with trial and error. Afterwards the member gave us feedback on how to actually solve...More

We had sooooo much fun at this escape room. Challenging but not impossible, and perfect for 5-8 people. Also in a great bar and restaurant area (just around the corner) to unwind afterwards.

We had a great time with our Fathers’ Day visit to Escape Artist DC. There were three of us: 2 fifty-somethings and a twenty-something. Everyone contributed surprisingly equally and we finished the 60-minute Gallery Heist challenge in around 52 minutes (with no hints!). I would...More

We had a great time in the Gallery Heist. The adventure was fun and the owner is super nice and helpful. Definitely recommend. (note: the building looks like a row home from the outside. You might miss the sign. Don't worry... it's a real business...More

This business takes great pride in crafting exciting and challenging rooms. There were some fun and creative puzzles. It was fairly difficult, so I would not recommend for first time escapees. The place was small, but comfortable. We had a group of almost 30, and...More
