2 Cocktails 2 Hours Winter & Summer

Federal Agents vs. Rum Runners 

Guests will enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and hear about the secret history of Mobile during this Prohibition-themed bar crawl. Hear stories about “blind tigers”, rum runners, and moonshiners who kept the drinks flowing and the party going even as Federal agents, early feminists, and the Ku Klux Klan swore to end drinking.

During the Jazz Age an Alabama trumpeter rose to fame, a Montgomery debutante married the writer of a generation, and a local architect built a mysterious Egyptian temple in downtown Mobile. But the twenties could not roar forever. Finally, Federal agents brought the party to a grinding halt and by the end of the decade the Azalea City was in the grip of the Great Depression. Prohibition was an epic battle that turned Catholic against Protestant and urban against rural America—forever changing the social fabric of our country. 

Guests will enjoy cocktails at Alchemy Tavern, the Side Car Lounge, and end the tour the Haberdasher where guests who choose to may order a third drink on their own tab. In between we’ll talk about the music, literature, and architecture that kept the twenties roaring and made Mobile the wildest city in Alabama. The tour takes 2 hours, and includes 3 cocktails. All guests must be 21.
