1923 Prohibition Bar Celebrates National Bourbon Day

1923 Prohibition Bar at Mandalay Bay, open seven days a week, announces National Bourbon Day specials on Monday, June 14 with 15% off their house bourbon flight available at the bar top with tasting notes. The bourbon flight is regularly priced at $32 and includes a sampling of today’s most popular bourbons including Buffalo Trace, Bulleit, Angel’s Envy and Angel’s Envy Rye.

The new, Prohibition-themed 1923 Prohibition Bar, is a private, hidden, modern speakeasy, serving bourbon spirits and signature barrel-aged specialty cocktails. The elegant venue also hosts live burlesque shows, live rock band karaoke and bourbon education and tasting classes.

Prohibition

For those of you who don’t know what prohibition and speakeasies are, Prohibition started in 1920 with the Volstead Act and was essentially a piece of legislation that outlawed drinking within the US, and was created as a result of the Christian Temperance movement that started with what we consider to be the first wave of feminism in the 1820s-1930s, as women wanted to, among other things, prevent spousal abuse that would occur as a result of drinking. Needless to say, the act was hard to enforce and people began distributing liquor illegally, known as “bootlegging,” and people would go to illegal bars, known as “speakeasies.” Gangs rose in popularity during this time, such as Al Capone, as a result of bootlegging. The act was officially repealed in 1933.

National Bourbon Day

National Bourbon Day is a day in which to celebrate America’s National Spirit, a drink created officially by Elijah Craig in the limestone shelf region, where most whisky is still made, in the 1700s. Charred barrels gave the whisky it’s iconic oaky flavor. It is still produced predominantly in America (hence the title of America’s National Spirit) and is enjoyed by many today.
