A few weeks ago, Urbaanite was invited to an exclusive journey back in time to the roaring 20’s. During this era, the 18th Amendment to the Constitution which was ratified in 1919, banned the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors while the federal Volstead Act shut down every saloon and bar in the United States. From that point forward, it became illegal to sell any intoxication beverages. Because of this, secret underground parties were held where people could gather and consume liquor. This type of party was known as a Speakeasy. From secret passcodes to a really jazzy dress code, Nashbash pulled out all the stops to recreate a true speakeasy and has allowed us to share this experience with our readers.
The party kicked off with a brief meet and greet while sampling some tasty whiskey selections courtesy of the William Collier’s Distillery.
It was a really cool experience to see everyone dressed up and having a great time while learning about the history of Nashville and our contribution to the prohibition era. In addition to the whiskey tasting, there was a full-service craft bar that was amazing! The bartenders were prompt, friendly, and made sure every cocktail that touched your palette was perfection!
As the drinks flowed everyone mingled and danced the night away.
This was a party that was definitely for the mature crowd and we had such a blast, that we cannot wait for to see what other secret eventsÂ Nashbash has to offer. Because their events are based on word of mouth, the best way to receive future details is by subscribing to Urbaanite today! We will definitely have more exclusive events, giveaways and perks for readers in the future. Hope to see you at the next soiree!
