Historic Happy Hour: Speakeasy at Seibels House

Friday, January 17, 2020 6:00 pm

1601 Richland Street
Columbia, SC 29201

Exactly 100 years ago on January 17th, 1920, Prohibition went into effect
following the ratification of the 18th Amendment. It didn’t take long for
speakeasy locations to pop up in cities and rural areas across the nation.
Join Historic Columbia as we commemorate the enactment of Prohibition as
Seibels House becomes a speakeasy for one night only! Register in advance to
receive the password for admission, listen to the ragtime and jazz music from
the period, enjoy the fun that can’t be stopped by Prohibition… unless we
receive a visit from the coppers! Learn more about the only amendment to be
repealed and the arguments for and against its enactment at the event from 6
– 8p.m. on January 17th at the Seibels House, located at 1601 Richland
Street.

Drinks and light appetizers are included with admission. Attendees must be 21
years of age or older. There is limited space and guests are encouraged to
purchase tickets in advance.
