Back To The Twenties: Prohibition in DC

January 17, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

On January 17, 1920, the 18th Amendment, mandating the prohibition of the manufacture, transport, or sale of intoxicating liquors, went into effect. Join the Educational Foundation, exactly one hundred years later, for an evening re-creating the decade that followed with jazz, period drinks, and glimpses of history. 

We will revisit Prohibition-era Washington, DC, from Capitol Hill to DuPont Circle and enjoy live music from U Street where Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, and others created the “U Street renaissance.” Invented-in-DC drinks like “The Rickey” and other period cocktails (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be served along with tastes of the era. A portion of the proceeds will go for the restoration of The Pub.  

Reserve now and get your password to give to The Man in the Green Hat at the door of our speakeasy!
