Speakeasy Expedition - New York's Past

Speakeasy Expedition - New York's Past

New York’s past is not perfect, and one of the most jarring parts of our history occurred during the Prohibition.

Sylvia

I am an entrepreneur, project manager and leadership trainer by day, but when I’m not going to meetings or and hosting events, I go to a speakeasy to enjoy a cocktail or two. I love the 1920s or the Prohibition era. The way they dress and the way they talk amaze me. I have lived in 4 different continents. I love seeing the world and understanding different cultures and languages. I am someone who pursued the American dream and have been fortunate enough to succeed. It would be my pleasure to spend a few hours with you to share with you New York with all its rich history.

Where you'll be

First, we’ll visit a bar that places a modern twist on the historic concept of the speakeasy. Then, we’ll visit a beautiful, hidden gem of New York’s bar scene, one that transports you into a completely unique world, hidden from the outside world. Finally, we’ll visit one of the two remaining speakeasies that operated during the Prohibition Era, a fitting way to close the book on the Prohibition Era itself and on our tour.
