Description

Imagine embarking on a unique tour of New York City, stepping back in time to the era of speakeasies and prohibition. This experience begins as you climb aboard a meticulously restored vintage car, reminiscent of the 1920s, an era when the city's streets hummed with the likes of Ford Model As and elegant roadsters. As the car cruises through the city, you're taken on a journey through New York’s rich and clandestine past. The tour includes visits to hidden speakeasies, once secret havens for the city's elite and adventurous during the prohibition era. These speakeasies are tucked away behind unmarked doors, in basements, or hidden behind the façade of ordinary businesses, just as they were in the 1920s. Throughout the tour, you're regaled with tales of the prohibition era - stories of notorious gangsters, innovative bootleggers, and the creative ways New Yorkers kept the liquor flowing despite the law. The vintage car adds an authentic feel to the experience, as you're transported not just through the city, but also through time. At each speakeasy stop, you have the opportunity to taste signature cocktails, each with its own history and connection to the prohibition era. These drinks are crafted by skilled bartenders, using recipes that have survived the test of time. The atmosphere in each speakeasy is unique - some may have retained their original 1920s decor, while others have been modernized yet still exude the secretive and exclusive ambiance of a bygone era. The tour isn't just about the drinks and the drive; it's an immersive experience. It's about feeling the essence of an era that profoundly shaped modern New York City. From the jazz music softly playing in the background to the stories of each hidden bar's origins, the tour is a captivating journey through one of the most intriguing periods of the city's history. • As an optional end to the tour, select the 1 Hour Enter Speakeasy addon. Your guide will lead you to a hidden speakeasy in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. You will learn about the deep history of the bar and have a prohibition era cocktail served to you by an expert bartender! •
