What you'll do

You will be guided by myself or one of my well trained colleagues. Walk with us as we retrace the immigrant progress toward the American Dream during Prohibition. As masters of the art of storytelling, we’ll guide you into one of New York's last-standing champagne speakeasies where we'll toast to a prohibition cocktail as we tell the tale of the period’s most notorious gangsters and infamous bootleggers. At our second location, we’ll explore the catalysts behind Prohibition and focus on the women of the Gilded Age, and the movement that gave rise to an oil king while sipping cocktails taken straight from the movie. To round off our journey together, we’ll drink and discuss the demise of Prohibition and its relevance today. *1 complimentary sample drink provided. *purchase necessary: please expect beer from $8-10 and wine/cocktails from $12-18 *we do not accept late arrivals due to the nature of the tour. *the 21 Club is a historic meeting point only. We do not visit this club.

Where you'll be

We will be drinking in Midtown at an original speakeasy—the speakeasy of all speakeasies. We enter a Gilded Age speakeasy and will drink and eat while celebrating the greatest catalyst to Prohibition. We will end by drinking at our final stop and celebrating the end of Prohibition together. Dress is comfy but classy. No large backpacks or flip flops by the request of the establishments. *purchase necessary: beer/wine/cocktails from $8-18
