Chester County Night School

Prohibition Cocktail Tour (Rated "Best of Philly")

Rated Best Tour of The City. This adventure in the heart of Center City shows you what it was like to be a “thirsty” Philadelphian trying to score a drink in Prohibition-era Philly. You’ll visit two Philly hotspots to enjoy a generous sample of an under-the-radar period cocktail at each location. The two drinks were carefully selected for their authenticity, but more importantly, their rarity in today’s bar scene. More details on website. Stops include: " Time Restaurant - Reminiscent of the glamour of the 1920's, it's the perfect location to get a feel for the Hollywood lifestyle that was all the rage. The featured cocktail is Whiskey Punch, accompanied by housemade onion rings. " Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse - Located in the historic Packard Bank and Insurance building, the grandeur of the architecture speaks to the era's bold confidence in the stock market, with no hint of a crash in sight. The featured cocktail is the Southside (Al Capone's drink of choice), accompanied by Del Frisco's fresh baked bread and cheesesteak dumplings. Your entertaining guide, decked out in twenties attire, will share stories and captivating images of the day, as well as point out stunning 1920's architecture, including one of the city's best examples of Art Deco. We'll delve into the rampant racketeering in the Roaring Twenties. Please note that beverages (besides those listed as part of the tour) are not included and are the responsibility of the client.
