Activity Overview
During your New York Speakeasy Tour of the West Village, you will be guided through all the historical developments that lead to Prohibition in the United States from 1920 to 1933 and how it lead to the creation of many speakeasies throughout Manhattan. We will walk you through 6 of the best speakeasies, secret taverns and famous bars from South of Chelsea, through the Meatpacking District and finish the tour in the heart of Greenwich Village. During your speakeasy tour, you will have the chance to try Manhattans award-winning high-quality craft cocktails, while you sit back and enjoy all the history about why and how Prohibition started and as well how it was enforced.

The tour will end close to the West 4th subway station where there are many restaurants, bars, nightlife and the tour guide will be there for directions and recommendations.

Alex is very knowledgeable and engaging! The 2 hours went by so fast… we were never bored with all the history. Between the fun trivia questions, secret-entry speakeasy’s and amazing cocktails, it was one of the better tours we took while in NYC. We highly recommend Alex’s tours!
