Wow. Just… wow.
We’ve been keeping a pretty tight lid on the details for our 2015 SXSW Mashable House, and for good reason. With more surprises, more pop culture craziness and more homages to the year in digital culture than ever before, this is one event you really have to see to believe.
But, with that being said, there are a few details we are able to release.
Visit our hidden speakeasy
The Easter Egg is back. Our secret bar, hidden within the Mashable House, is the perfect spot to take a break from the chaos of SXSW, enjoy a custom cocktail and mingle.
The catch? It’s only accessible to guests who know the secret password. If you want to know more, make sure to follow Mashable on Snapchat for clues.

Duel it out with HBO’s Silicon Valley
We’re bringing the hit HBO show Silicon Valley to the Mashable House with dueling Pied Piper and Hooli trade show floors. You can visit Hooli’s high-tech, 360-degree Scheimpflüg bullet rig photo booth, try your hand at Pied Piper’s competitive code-breaking game to win tickets to our MashBash or battle it out on a custom foosball table.

Swing by to meet Morris the Cat from 9 Lives, who will be hanging out to take photos while he live tweets the event. You can also visit our SXSW website to watch his insider “Cat’s Eye View” videos of the Mashable House.
Get your heart pumping at the Withings silent disco

Rub elbows with our celebrity guests
From rap legend Sir Mix-A-Lot and WWE superstar Hulk Hogan to actress Judy Greer and the cast of Undateable, we have some amazing celebrity guests dropping by the house. While the details are still technically under wraps, we can say this — you definitely don’t want to miss it.
And if that’s not enough running around for you, grab your sneakers. RunHaven will be greeting early-risers at the Mashable House each morning at 9:30 a.m. so they can start their day off with a 3- or 5-mile run around Austin.
Bottom line? There’s a lot of amazing stuff going on, and you’re not going to want to miss any of it. Download Speakiesy, the social networking app that lets you interact with other Mashable House visitors to make sure you’re there for every Internet-breaking moment.
