Shhhhhh…..You’re going to need to be dressed and have the right password to get into the secret entrance for the 100 Braid St Silk Hat Cocktail SpeakEasy Prohibition Gala. From the outside, it will look like you’re attending an Art Show but in reality, you’re going to travel back in time to 1929, the year when our building came into being. The prohibition was in full force and rum runners & owners of the BC Distillery, the Reifel brothers, were providing the world with Silk Hat Cocktails produced right here in our building. Our event will harken back to the days of prohibition excess where you will enjoy the drink, food, history, and music of the underground culture of the era.
Join us to learn how to make handcrafted contemporary interpretations of Silk Hat Cocktails with Lavish Liquid bartenders; imbibe 2 alcoholic cocktails and 2 mocktails that will pair with delectable eats from Chef Bain Van Dam of Fork & Knife Catering. You’ll learn about the sordid history of our building through a short historical theatrical experience which will blur the boundaries between audience and performers and you’ll get to enjoy amazing live jazz from the era with music provided by our resident vocal group, Quayside Voices. And last but not least, be prepared to get out and join our roaring twenties dancers when the live music demands you take to the dance floor.
So come to our Art Show, wink, wink. It’s going to be an amazing night but be careful who you tell, we don’t want the cops finding out and busting in to break up the party!
Tickets are $75(taxes & service fees extra), and going quickly. Psst did we mention there will be a Mugshot Photobooth, prizes for best-dressed guests, and door prizes!
