The Underground at The Mob Museum Launches Happy Hour, Announces Packaged Moonshine and Vodka for Sale

 

THE UNDERGROUND AT THE MOB MUSEUM LAUNCHES HAPPY HOUR, ANNOUNCES PACKAGED MOONSHINE AND VODKA FOR SALE 

The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces its ongoing Happy Hour program in The Underground speakeasy exhibition. The speakeasy’s full-service bar purveys not only house-distilled moonshine and craft beer, but also wines by the glass, non-alcoholic beverages and—of course—a tempting array of authentic, Prohibition-inspired cocktails. From 5 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, visitors can now enjoy 20 percent off select craft cocktails, draft beer and wine by the glass.

In addition, visitors  can take a taste of Prohibition history home with them with The Underground’s house-distilled moonshine and proprietary vodka. The Underground Moonshine, a Las Vegas corn whiskey, is made with double-distilled, 100 percent corn mash on-site and measures a stiff 100 proof. Meanwhile, The Underground Vodka is handmade in Nevada and measures 80 proof. Moonshine and Vodka may be purchased starting at $19.95 for 750 milliliters and $5.99 for 50 milliliters.

In addition to sampling its spirited beverage collection, guests touring The Underground can learn about Prohibition-era bootlegging and rum running. Prohibition shut down thousands of breweries and distilleries across America, but it could not eliminate the public’s desire for alcohol. It simply forced the brewing and distilling of booze into the shadows, contributing significantly to the rise and proliferation of the Mob in America.

Numerous artifacts found in the distillery and speakeasy add depth and context to the experience. Items to be on display include a beaded chiffon dress, ca. 1926, which is an example of the new and bolder fashions that became popular during the Prohibition era, as well as a 5-gallon whiskey still, one of the smaller home stills used to make alcohol during Prohibition.

The Underground is open Sunday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday until midnight. Admission to the speakeasy is included with general Museum admission and free any time for patrons using the daily passwords found on Instagram Stories @MobMuseum_Underground.
