Event description

Description

Discover the hidden, booze-filled underbelly of New York City with the Prohibition Pub Crawl East Village. On this three-hour walking tour, you'll visit pubs that once served as speakeasies during Prohibition along with other hidden bars.

Explore where some of the famous gangster murders and kidnappings in the neighbohood took place. Hear an amazing story of determination and savvy of an immigrant rum runner in his quest to earn millions of dollars. Learn about the history of alcohol consumption in the U.S. and the role booze played in American life. Learn about the passionate Temperance movement. Learn the role commerce played with the many immigrant beer barons and bootleggers who opposed the moral crusades of the day and became immeasurably wealthy because of it. Learn just how successful the Dry movement ultimately became in the passing of the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. And, of course, we'll have a good time sipping vintage craft cocktails made by top bartenders. It will be the Bee's Knees!
