  • - See infamous hangouts from the prohibition era, also known as Speakeasies.

  • - Learn the unusual circumstances ordinary citizens have come across, related to the American Mafia.

You’ve just arrived in New York City, ready to party in the Big Apple. Unfortunately, it’s the height of Prohibition, and there’s not a drink to be found. 

You’ve heard whisperings of underground speakeasies where a thirsty soul can find a cup of hooch. Problem is, they’re all run by the Mafia—and you’re worried about tangling with dangerous outlaws just for a cocktail. But the thrill of the Big City pulls you in, and you can’t help but go searching for the most hoppin’ place in Midtown.
