Congress Street Up, a New Prohibition-style Speakeasy in Savannah, Shows You How to Shake. Swizzle. Sip.
Learn how to stir & shake classic cocktails developed from tried and true recipes. Savannah’s new Prohibition-style Speakeasy cocktail bar, Congress Street Up, started offering cocktail classes Monday, October 9th at their downtown location upstairs in the American Prohibition Museum.
“I look forward to helping guests further understand how their drinks are being made,” said Warren Cooey, Bar Manager and Beverage Director at Congress Street Up. “This way, next time they go out to a cocktail bar, they will be more willing to branch out and try new things. Also, who doesn’t want to play bartender to a group of friends at home?”
Cocktail classes will be held every other Monday. Guests will be taught how to make shaken and stirred cocktails while learning the history behind the drinks and how to use professional bar tools. The cost is $35 per person. Private group classes are also available. Guests 21 and up only.
Visit their website for more details or call (912) 220-1249. Congress Street Up is located at 220 West Congress Street at the corner of Congress and Jefferson. We’re next to Ellis Square in the City Market of downtown Savannah.
