Take a tipsy journey through the spirit trails of New York's underground watering holes. Your journey will feel like a discovery of hidden escapes from the hustle and bustle of midtown's tourism hub. Sure to be guided by one of the most exciting tour guides, you'll be captivated by the rich history that has inspired your evening's libations. Walk with us as we retrace the immigrant progress toward the American Dream during Prohibition. We will guide you into one of New York's last-standing 1920s speakeasies and tell the tale of the period’s most notorious gangsters and infamous bootleggers. At our second location, we’ll explore the catalysts behind Prohibition and focus on the women of the Gilded Age, and the movement that gave rise to an oil king. To round off our journey together, we’ll take you to one of New York's most unique bars where we’ll discuss the sudden demise of Prohibition.

Fabulous evening with a wonderful group. Learnt so much about Hells Kitchen area's history and visited bars we would never have tried.
An eye opening tour, with a bit of a twist.

Kate was the best guide and opened up the world of intimate hidden NY lounges. The history of prohibition was brought to life with knowledge and humor. She brought our small group together and we felt like we had made some new friends. Yay to Canada, Denver, Florida and Jersey. We will be bringing friends and family on this lovely tour. Thanks Kate!!
Fun way to explore the city

Worked in NYC n I didn't even know these bars existed in midtown! (I thought they were all in Greenwich Village). Jenna was full of information n she was FUN!! She made us all comfortable. By the end of the night, couple of participants were so funny, got us laughing mad. Yes, the drinks were fab! Brilliant.
Knowledgeable guide
