Explore the American Prohibition Museum & Sip Cocktails in the Speakeasy

Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend?

Then explore the American Prohibition Museum.

It's a recent addition to Savannah, and it's the only museum of its type in the United States.

Spanning nearly six thousand square feet, it's designed to both educate and entertain with features such as thirteen galleries and a speakeasy.

Highlights include:

The Temperance Movement - In 1850, the American Temperance Society reached its highest membership numbers to date with more than 238,000 people supporting the cause. This display features some of the posters, pamphlets, and propaganda that encouraged Americans to vote the country dry.

Southern Rum Runners - Did you know that Savannah was often referred to as the "Bootleg Spigot of the South? As visitors explore this gallery, they learn about Rum Row and the journey many took to get their goods onshore.

Crime and Gangsters - The museum states that Prohibition led to the rise of organized crime as gangsters started to form bootleg operations that were both well-organized and profitable. The Crime and Gangsters exhibit displays items confiscated from the gangsters and details how many of them ended up in jail.

Speakeasy - After exploring the museum, visitors 21 and over can visit the speakeasy where they'll need to whisper the password to gain entry. It's rated as "One of the Hottest Bars in Savannah" by Zagat, and is complete with a tin punch ceiling, parquet floor, wooden and brick back bars, and costumed bartenders. The menu only offers Prohibition-style cocktails such as Sidecar, Gin Ricky, and Twelve Mile Limit.

The American Prohibition Museum is just one of many cultural attractions near our apartments in Savannah, Georgia. If you are thinking about calling our community home, please contact us to schedule a tour.
