During this 3-hour walking tour, a local guide will lead you to four tucked-away watering holes where patrons defied the national ban on liquor during the 1920s. Enjoy three vintage-inspired drinks and a bar snack while discovering the clandestine history of these rule-breaking East Village establishments.

- Learn from a knowledgeable guide about the history of New York City's off-the-radar drinking establishments
- Three drinks and a snack are included
What You Can Expect:
When the US Congress passed the 18th amendment banning the production and sale of liquor in 1919, many New Yorkers defied Prohibition by frequenting illegal, secret bars known as speakeasies. Many of these hidden watering holes have been remarkably preserved and still sling cocktails to modern-day city slickers.
Meet your knowledgeable guide in Manhattan’s East Village and begin your 3-hour walking tour at McSorley's Old Ale House. The oldest Irish tavern in New York, McSorley’s dates back to the mid-19th century and held onto its old-fashioned roots for so long that it did not admit female patrons until forced to do so by court order in 1970. Enjoy a pub snack and mug of ale here among the timeworn walls and century-old memorabilia.
Continue on to three other historic watering holes that are known to have been speakeasies during the 1920s. The exact itinerary will vary by day, but your guide will lead you to an insider’s selection of these hard-to-find spots, many accessed through secret, unmarked entrances or stairways. Soak up the nostalgic, clandestine atmosphere and enjoy a classic drink at each bar.
