Overview

Discover the underground world of the Prohibition-era speakeasy on an entertaining adults-only tour that takes you to four historic Chicago bars. Learn why the sale of alcohol was banned for more than a decade in the United States, and the subsequent popularity of illicit establishments where liquor, jazz, and mobsters ruled. An air-conditioned coach shuffles you from bar to bar, so feel free to buy a drink or two. This small-group tour, limited to 20 people, ensures a more customized experience with your guide.

Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide

This was an outstanding tour providing very interesting and fun information about the Prohibition era in Chicago. Visited four former Speakeasies and saw the former haunts of Al Capone and Frank Nitti, among others. Miranda was an excellent tour guide who helped make this an exceptional evening. She has a unique sense of humor that makes her perfect for this tour and which we thoroughly enjoyed. We highly recommend this!

Had such a great time on the tour. The information was presented in a fun way and Sydney was amazing! She is so knowledgeable and makes post-prohibition drinking a blast. Highly recommend.

What a great tour! Our tour guide Sydney was amazing. She is full of information and great at telling the story of prohibition. I loved how she takes the time to go around and talk to everyone at all the different bar stops. What a great way to learn about the prohibition era and see some of chicago at the same time.

Me and my daughters had a great time, the tour was really insightful, the guides did a great job of explaining and telling the story, they were very personal at each of the stops, it was a fun evening. My only issue was the initial presentation, I was caught off guard a bit with the references made however, got by that and had a great time....

Sydney and Meredith made the trip simply delightful. We followed their suggestions for drinks, and weren’t disappointed. I was glad there was time to eat as well as drink as we saw the backrooms and basements of the 13 years of Prohibition. Try the Lemon Drop at Lucky’s. Avoid the Chicago Handshake at Maggie’s Still.
