From a press release:
“There’s no better place to celebrate the abolition of the booze-prohibiting 18th amendment than a place with the largest selection of whiskey in the Western hemisphere. Jack Rose Dining Saloon is celebrating the day alcohol was made legal once again with its 3rd Annual Repeal Day Celebration complete with prohibition-era cocktails in a basement speakeasy, historic whiskey flights on draft, bottomless bubbles, 1930s-inspired nibbles and even burlesque performances.
For those who want to celebrate in the truest Repeal Day fashion, the booze-fueled Repeal Day Party will run from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. with drink specials all evening: classic prohibition-era cocktails such as the Clover Club and Astoria for $9, specialty whiskeys for $8, prohibition punches for $7, and bottomless bubbles for $20.
And in the just-opened Whiskey Cellar, the bar’s signature four-whiskey draft system will dispense a selection of historic bourbons and rye whiskeys. The Whiskey Cellar is a dimly-lit, hidden basement bar decorated with leather chairs and couches, whiskey barrel-repurposed tables and a rare exhibition of pre-prohibition whiskey bottlings – the perfect speakeasy-style setting for a Repeal Day celebration.
Burlesque dancers will perform for spectators throughout the evening while cigarette girls will offer a selection of specially-priced cigars. Guests are encouraged to dress to the nines in flapper dresses and swanky suits, donning their most Prohibition-era attire.
There is no admission fee to the Repeal Day Party at Jack Rose and is open to the public.”
