As we anxiously await The Downton Abbey Movie set to premier on September 20th in the U.S., Telltale Tours and NiteTables Experiences have developed an officially sponsored Prohibition History & Speakeasy Tour NYC as a prelude. This special event has been developed in conjunction with Focus Films and Allied NY.
The Downton Abbey Sponsored Tour will operate from September 6th until the 30th with group events scheduled at 4pm and 7:30pm respectively. Each tour is a 3-hour walking journey through 1920's Prohibition Era New York City as seen through the eyes of the city's oldest and iconic drinking establishments. the tour content will intertwine Downton Abbey England and Roaring 20's America.
The award-winning tour is a must-do for fans of the television as a nightly trivia contest will challenge their knowledge with prizes for the winner. Dress appropriate to the period is strongly encouraged as there will also be a costume contest winner for each tour as well. Everyone gets some of the official movie swag just for participating.
The Prohibition History & Speakeasy Tour visits three of NYC's hidden bars and iconic speakeasies as we tell the great stories of American immigration, Prohibition, suffrage and the impending doom of the Great Depression. cocktails are served up by the city's top mixologists. One complimentary drink sampler is included, but imbibing further is highly recommended. At one of the tour stops, Lillie's Victorian, the bartenders have created three special cocktails directly from the official Downton Abbey book to be served at a VIP table with signature menu and napkins.
This is a limited engagement, must-do event for Downton Abbey fans and lovers of American and Anglo history. Especially those who enjoy a drink or two to get into the "spirit" (pun intended). Join the group!
