The 18th Amendment of the United States Constitution effectively established the prohibition of alcoholic beverages in the United States by declaring the production, transport, and sale of alcohol illegal from 1920 until 1933.
Not to be deterred, the bootleggers and back door bartenders created a rapidly growing world of illegal ‘speakeasy’ venues across America that created and served some of the most well known classic cocktails that we enjoy to this day.
The speakeasies of New York and Chicago became a darker and mysterious business where gangsters seduced people of all classes with jazz, lust, love and, of course, booze.
At The 18th Amendment Bar, they invite you to enjoy our concoction of prohibition elegance interlaced with modern innovation.
Now grab some ‘giggle water’, ‘make some whoopee’ and try not to get too ‘zozzled’.
