The perfect night for getting your Gatsby on!
Grab some friends and join us for a speakeasy banquet and a night of live music and dancing, plus surprise pop up performances… a night where you can feast, dance and play!
It’s the 1920’s in here!
Inside an old closed down bank lies the hottest spot on the strip.
Its prohibition time, an era of secrecy and excess and you have the secret password….
Hang out the front of the old bank when you arrive, but look busy, we don’t want those cops spotting you.
Look out for a heavy looking guy. He’ll be lurking in the shadows.
If he approaches you have your guard up, this could be the cops.
He’ll ask you a series of questions, play it cool and drop the secret code in conversation to be sure.
If this is the guy he will motion you to a secret door. Slip inside, but don’t be seen.
Down the dirty alley, and through the second check point.
Leave your guns at the door and get ready to party prohibition style!
Now here is what you need to know..
The cat who owns the joint will be wanting to meet you, get ready for a chat and a dance if your game.
Be friendly and obey the rules, but most importantly have fun.
The rules are it’s the 1920’s and there aren’t rules, this is a speakeasy….… accept if the cops arrive, then hide your drinks and walk in a straight line or you’ll blow the whole operation.
Here is what we have for you..
We got some real nice fellas who will have a drink ready for you when you arrive, to calm those jitters.
Now your first drink is on us, but ask you waiter for some help with the next few, they’ll have some tips for big drinking.
Your waiters will be bringing you food all night. If you like something ask for more!
You can check out the kinds of foods we’ll be serving you here..
We have some sexy guys and dolls that have come to keep the party happening, they’ll be doing some aerial performances, some sultry burlesque and a bit of vaudeville juggling just for you. It’ll be happening when you least expect, and we ain’t paying them, so give them a clap to keep them happy.

A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON
GIN MILL (noun) – 1920’s slang for an establishment where hard liquor is sold. Tavern consisting of a building with a bar and public rooms. A room or establishment where drinks and meals are served.
SOCIAL (adj) – A party of people assembled to promote sociability and communal activity. A group of people gathered together for pleasure.
HISTORY – A speakeasy was an establishment that illegally sold alcoholic beverages in an age of Prohibition. These establishments came into prominence in the United States during 1920’s. During this time, the sale, manufacture, and transportation (bootlegging) of alcoholic beverages was illegal. Speakeasies were so called because of the practice of speaking quietly about such a place in public, or even inside it, so as not to alert the police.
