Travel back in time to the Prohibition era, when thousands of speakeasies operating in hard-to-find places satisfied the nation’s thirst for forbidden spirits.
Informative and entertaining exhibits, videos and artifacts tell the stories of the Roaring Twenties, which saw the rise of flappers, jazz and the Mob. The speakeasy exhibit is built around a well-stocked bar and a stage for evening entertainment, creating a lively environment inspired by that bygone age.

The Bee’s Knees was a popular Prohibition-era drink. Its name is an homage to dancer Bee Jackson, who is credited with popularizing the Charleston. Jackson’s exposed knees were the talk of Broadway and beyond. Our twist on the classic cocktail adds jalapeno for a little kick that’s sure to make you dance.
Inspired by a bourbon lover with a soft spot for sherry, this secret twist on a classic marries richness with velvety smooth textures to bring out one sexy sip packed with refreshing no-nonsense and a hint of sass.
When Al Capone moved to Miami in the late 1920s, the tropical climate inspired his in-house bartender to invent more exotic drinks. This cocktail boasts a rich palette of flavors, including pineapple, tea and cardamom. When delicate spices meet Mob Museum Moonshine, only Mayhem can result.
