Great experience visiting 4 historic speak easy bars and learning a lot about the history of the US including Chicago. Sydney, our guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable, amusing and good fun to drink with.

We had no idea what to expect but it turned into a fun and educational evening. Great time learning about the speakeasys and prohibition with great cocktails, guide and people along on the excursion. Highly recommend it for Chicagoans and visitors alike!

The Prohibition history combined with the mixology class of pre-Prohibition cocktails was great fun. Entertaining and educational. Good cooking/chemistry concepts for mixing cocktails. It was part of Chicago Food Bowl. They should do it again!

Highly recommend this tour of old speakeasy's. Our tour guide was very humourous as she described life under prohibition in the USA. Our stops had excellent beverages and food. We also were able to get to know others on the tour.
