It’s been exactly 80 years since Prohibition was repealed.
Looking to celebrate? You could go toBar Louie, which is celebrating Repeal Day
with all-day parties at its locations in the Power Light District and Zona Rosa.
Bar Louie bartenders dressed in 1920s garb are slinging specially crafted Prohibition-era cocktails — recipes include the Sidecar, French 75 and Irish Old Fashioned — to the sounds of swinging jazz.
Prefer to stay in? Whip up one of these holiday-themed cocktails.
