Panoramica

Visita quattro bar storici di Chicago, aperti dal proibizionismo, e scopri di più sul mondo occulto di quest'epoca, grazie alla tua guida ben preparata. Questo tour per soli adulti ti porterà, a bordo di un pullman, per i locali un tempo illegali della città vecchia, di Wicher Park e di Chicago Loop, domanti dai liquori, dal jazz e dai gangster. Potrai saperne di più sui gangster di Chicago come Al Capone e sul contesto storico di questo periodo di proibizione dell'alcol che durò un decennio. Se desideri, puoi acquistare i cocktail consigliati, preparati sul momento, e i cocktail personalizzati degli anni '20.
II tour di 3 ore e mezza, di Chicago nell'epoca del proibizionismo, inizierà al bar The Green Door Tavern, un bar vintage del centro, costruito nel 1872 e decorato con oggetti d'antiquariato e da collezione americani, che creano un'atmosfera in stile vecchia Chicago. Assicurati di avere con te il documento d'identità, rilasciato dal governo, e un po' di contanti per l'acquisto di cocktail fatti sul momento e di cocktail personalizzati, preparati da baristi esperti, durante questo tour per soli adulti.

La coinvolgente guida ti illustrerà il mondo sotterraneo dei bar clandestini storici di Chicago, attivi nell'epoca del proibizionismo e aperti ancora oggi. Scopri perché la vendita di alcolici fu illegale negli Stati Uniti dal 1920 al 1933, e scopri i protagonisti del proibizionismo. Ascolta gli aneddoti sui fuorilegge come Al Capone e altri malviventi di Chicago che sono diventati potenti durante questi anni di sete.

Raggiungerai i quattro locali, ognuno con un carattere diverso, a bordo di un pullman. Poi siediti su uno sgabello di uno dei cocktail bar di Wicker Park, dove potrai ascoltare ottima musica blues di vecchi jukebox. Potrai anche entrare nel bar di quartiere che sostiene di essere il più antico e duraturo della città vecchia.

Termina il tour dei bar clandestini di Chicago al Exchequer Pub, un ristorante di un po' di decadi fa che si trova a Chicago Loop, dove le pareti sono ricoperte di fotografie storiche e manifesti.

Elizabeth was our guide and she did a great job. She was very personable and made the tour fun. We enjoyed each stop along the way. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are in Chicago.

Sidney is probably the most entertaining tour guide I've ever had. Lots of laughs, good drinks, and learned some stuff to boot. Highly recommend.

We had Sydney as a guide, and she was fantastic. She knows her history, she was fun, and the tour was great.

We had an amazing tour with Sydney! Extremely knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Learned many interesting tidbits about Prohibition and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Martinis at Club Lucky are the best! Thanks for a great afternoon, we highly recommend it.

A great experience - took this tour in the middle of winter and it was a blast. The bus provided is a great asset and is pulled up to the door of each establishment. The cocktails were excellent and it's easy to make new friends and find a few gems to re-visit after the tour. Cheers!

Of all my Viator trips over the years abroad, this is the first tour that disappointed me. First, the tour guide. During the bus rides she had a lot of very interesting information. However she spoke very fast, with her volume lowering at the end of sentences. With so much good information the tour would seem more substantial if speaking more slowly and using a mic. Second, in just about her first sentence about the history included the word "f***ing" and shortly after that, "a**hole." Now this was funny at first. However she used these and similar expletives more often after each drinking stop until the last bus segment was "f***ing" everything. She also seemed to think it was part of the comradery and added humor to call a couple of the tourists "a**hole." REALLY? Maybe she doesn't hold her liquor well. I think she sees herself as one of those stand-up comedians whose audience comes to the theater to be insulted. It was a bore, at the least.
The tour itself - The information on the bus sans the language issues was very good. The first bar stop was excellent. The next stops went progressively downhill until the historic information inside the last bar was five minutes standing in the entrance to the packed dining room, dodging waiters and diners and trying to hear. And very little actual historic elements to see. My advice is to skip that bar and save the best first one for last. And change the guide.
