What you'll do

Welcome to the Holiday Drinking and History tour this December!! You will be guided by myself or one of my well trained colleagues. *Please note the New Year’s Eve tour (https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/156739) will include everything from history to food & drinks, all night with an exclusive entry and a live view of the ball drop in Times Square from 12 blocks away. Walk with us through New York’s holiday lights 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 original speakeasies where we'll toast to a prohibition cocktail (nye style) and 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. We’ll celebrate the holiday season here with decor taken to the next level and lots of holiday themed cocktails and food. To round off our journey together, we'll take you around the edge of Times Square New Year’s Eve lights and finally we’ll discuss the demise of Prohibition. *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 *the 21 Club is only a meeting/historic spot
