What to expect

Embark on a journey through the spirit trails of New York's underground watering holes. Your journey will feel like a discovery of hidden escapes from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan's Midtown. Led by an expert, fun guide, you'll be captivated by the rich history associated with Prohibition-era NYC. You'll enter one of New York's last-standing speakeasies from the Roaring Twenties, and hear all about the period’s most notorious gangsters and infamous bootleggers.

At the second location, explore the catalysts behind Prohibition and focus on the women of the Gilded Age, the movement that gave rise to an oil king. To round off this journey back in time together, enter one of New York's most beloved, oldest bars and former speakeasy, where you'll learn about the demise of Prohibition.
