In conjunction with the National Constitution Center’s American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition exhibition, City Food Tours is taking booze enthusiasts on a Prohibition-themed tour of Philadelphia.
At each spot on the tour, you’ll get a taste of the drinks people were sneaking back in the day including The Southside, Al Capone’s personal favorite.
At Time, get a hefty portion of Whiskey Punch in this glamorous, 1920’s Hollywood-style hotspot.
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, located in the historic Packard Bank and Insurance building, is where you’ll be sipping The Southside. The restaurant’s elaborate decor and soaring ceilings make it the perfect spot to get a feel for what it was like back in the heyday of the Roaring 20s.
Last but not least, the tour will take you to a secret, undisclosed location that’s considered to be a modern-day speakeasy.
As you imbibe, tour guides will share stories, slang and captivating images from the era, so you’ll take a little historical knowledge away with you as well.
Note: National Constitution Center visitors will get 10% off the cocktail tour thanks to the exhibition connection.
