Celebrate the 4th Annual Repeal of Prohibition on Saturday, December 2nd 2017 in New Haven, Connecticut.

In 1920, the US government passed the 18th Amendment, ‘The Volstead Act’, prohibiting the sale and consumption of ‘intoxicating liquors, wine and beer’. Prohibition, as it was called, threw the United States into a dark and violent period with massive amounts of violence and corruption. Crooked politicians, bootleggers and gangsters flourished until the government repealed prohibition, with the 21st amendment on December 5th, 1933.

Please join us to celebrate this momentous anniversary on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 at some of New Haven’s finest restaurants and taverns (listed below). Each participating restaurant will serve two special ‘prohibition era cocktails’ at a reduced price from 5-10pm.

You're encouraged to dress like your favorite flapper, bootlegger, gangster or crooked politician….just like you were living in 1933!! Over 500 people celebrated last year!
