Prohibition Era DC was awash with scandal!
Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Now - Sep 19, 2024.
This multi-sensory experience explores the neighborhood at the heart of it all: DuPont Circle.

Throughout Prohibition, a river of illegal booze flowed through this high-powered enclave. Among these palatial homes, you'll hear the saga of the city's king makers and lawbreakers (often the same folks) and how their bygone realm was awash in splashy scandals, intrigue and corruption.
