Historic Happy Hour: Speakeasy at Seibels House
January 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$20
Exactly 100 years ago on January 17th, 1920, Prohibition went into effect following the ratification of the 18th Amendment. It didn’t take long for speakeasy locations to pop up in cities and rural areas across the nation.
Join Historic Columbia as we commemorate the enactment of Prohibition as Seibels House becomes a speakeasy for one night only! Register in advance to receive the password for admission, listen to the ragtime and jazz music from the period, enjoy the fun that can’t be stopped by Prohibition… unless we receive a visit from the coppers!
Learn more about the only amendment to be repealed and the arguments for and against its enactment at the event from 6 – 8p.m. on January 17th at the Seibels House, located at 1601 Richland Street.
Drinks and light appetizers are included with admission. Attendees must be 21 years of age or older. There is limited space and guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.
