New Orleans, Louisiana (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
On Saturday, December 5th from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., 21st Amendment at La Louisiane, located at 725 Iberville Street, will hold a Repeal Day party to include craft cocktails, burlesque artists, four bands and jitterbug dancing.
The right to drink is the only right of its kind enshrined in the Constitution of the United States. Eighty-two years ago, President Franklin D. Roosevelt acknowledged the failure of Prohibition to reduce crime, unemployment and debauchery, repealing the 18th Amendment that banned manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages. Since outlawing alcohol failed to solve any social problems, shake a leg and drink to the overwhelming success of the 21st Amendment, which legalized alcohol, on the anniversary of Repeal Day.
The 21st Amendment bar recreates a vintage, speakeasy atmosphere, displaying black and white photos of New Orleans own mobsters, including former owners “Diamond Jim” Moran and Carlos Marcello. Traditional jazz piano also lends a throwback feel. Six Tommy guns hung over the bar are vivid reminders of the days when revelers drank cocktails made with wood alcohol, “poisoned rum” and bathtub gin. Mixologist Jesse Faulk will whip up signature drinks with nostalgic names such as La Louisiane, Frenchy, Port of Iberia, Love Letter, and Evangeline.
In addition to the 21st Amendment bar, Hotel Mazarin will open up the adjacent La Louisiana Ballroom for additional gaiety. Entertainment will be provided by burlesque dancers Trixie Minx and Bella Blue, the Royal Street Windin’ Boys with Jenavieve Cook; Emily Estrella & Friends; JuJu Child; The Ibervillianaires, and NOLA Jitterbugs. The $10 cover charge covers a specialty cocktail, snazzy entertainment and keen prizes. Best Prohibition-era attire wins the top prize. For more information, visit http://www.repealdaynola.com.
