The One About Prohibition

For Christmas my mother gifted me tickets to The Chicago Prohibition Tour and it was beyond fantastic!

A 3 1/2 hour tour traveling to four different Speakeasies around the city, drinking delicious beverages, hanging out with my friend and meeting new friends along the way, and learning fun facts about the Prohibition era was one of the best Friday nights I’ve had in a long time.

History + cocktails = awesome

First stop was The Green Door Tavern.

This place was super legit as it still has the speakeasy in the basement hidden behind a cabinet door, and the space is still used to this day. I will definitely be returning to this joint.

Second stop was Club Lucky.

Club Lucky is not far from my neighborhood and it’s like stepping back into the 1930s when you walk into the door.
Club Lucky is known for their famous Mixologists and this drink with its Horchata deliciousness proved their title is well deserved.

Third stop is Marge’s Still.

Marge's Still is one of the oldest bars in Chicago. The woodwork in this place is amazing.

Their Champagne Bomb was delicious and definitely a must taste!

And last, but not least, Exchequer!

Exchequer was Al Capone's joint. Not only was this his speakeasy, it was also a brothel. Apparently their pizza is amazing.

After cocktails and martinis, I had to go for my tried and true drink, Guinness.

After the tour, my friend and I hung around Millennium Park and enjoyed the city.
