Highlights
  • Learn about the history of speakeasies in Prohibition-era New York
  • Discover hidden entrances that are difficult to find on your own
  • Skip long lines and savor award-winning, vintage-inspired cocktails
  • Small group size ensures an intimate experience
What to Expect
Meet your guide in downtown Manhattan for a brief introduction to Prohibition-era New York. At the first speakeasy of the tour, enjoy a craft cocktail (own expense) as you listen to the history of the city’s clandestine bars and breweries. This tour guarantees you breeze past long lines to make the most of the evening. Going with a local guide is a necessity, as most speakeasy entrances are hidden or unmarked as they would have been in the 1920s. Follow the guide to bars that even locals can’t find, in back alleys, through phone booths, behind a psychic shop, or past doors marked “No Entrance.” By the end of the tour, leave feeling more in the know than most New Yorkers.

We got to visit a couple of speakeasy bars that have different characters. Three hours of tour filled with histories and stories felt short and totally worth it! We will come back!
