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.


Authentic, Prohibition-era craft cocktails and shareable bites

August Drink Special: 12 Mile Limit, $12

Rumrunners delivered the good stuff to America’s speakeasies during Prohibition. Infamous rumrunner Bill McCoy, who is credited with creating “Rum Row,” was born in August 1877. In honor of his birthday, raise a glass with a 12 Mile Limit cocktail—named for the distance offshore boats would park to allow for alcohol sales.

12 Mile Limit is made with Rum, Brandy, Rye, Grenadine, and Lemon.
