Full description
Sip, Swirl. Taste. Gulp! Take a tipsy 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 midtown's tourism hub. Sure to be guided by one of the most exciting tour guides today, you'll be captivated by the rich history that has inspired your evening's libations.

Walk with your guide as you retrace the immigrant progress toward the American Dream during Prohibition. You will be guided into one of New York's last-standing 1920s speakeasies and told the tale of the period’s most notorious gangsters and infamous bootleggers. At your second location, you'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. To round off our journey together, we’ll take you to one of New York's oldest bars and former speakeasies where you'll hear the tale of the sudden demise of Prohibition.
