Speakeasies, Secrecy & Style
An age of defiance and clandestine affairs, Prohibition (1920-1933) was a pivotal period in American history where in New York City alone there were up to 100,000 speakeasies by 1925 serving liquor, in spite of the law.
Craft distilleries are making a comeback in New York and, within the last decade, many have reinvented and innovated the renowned heritage of whiskey, rum, and gin distilling throughout the state and in New York City. Bronx, Brooklyn or Westchester distilleries make fantastic event spaces.
A clandestine affair, taking you back to the days of Prohibition whiskey, rum, and Early jazz.
