Prohibition, the Gaslamp Quarter’s underground speakeasy, will celebrate Mistress Day, Wednesday, Feb. 13, with cocktails that pay homage to three of American presidents’ most well-known women – Marilyn, Monica and Stormy.
Created by lead bartender and GBOD Hospitality Group beverage director, Ryan Andrews, the hand-crafted cocktails will be available for $13. Marilyn is a combination of rye whiskey, demerara, R&D cherry apple bitters and R&D house bitters, for an Old Fashioned-inspired tribute to the ‘50s and ‘60s. Monica is a mix of gin, lime, pomegranate and curaçao. Stormy is made with tequila, lime, orgeat, R&D sarsaparilla bitters and cinnamon.
Prohibition is located at 548 Fifth Ave, San Diego, CA 92101/(619) 501-1919/www.prohibitionsd.com.
In February of 2017 GBOD Hospitality took over management of Prohibition, a speakeasy known for its craft cocktails, where bartenders, rapturous live music and hypnotic lighting capture the elusive spirit of the 1920s-era underground bar scene. Prohibition, located at 548 Fifth Ave, is an underground bar and the stairs are located behind an inconspicuous “Law Office – Eddie O’Hare, ESQ.” door located adjacent to Havana 1920. It is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. with live music beginning at 9 p.m. More information about Prohibition is available on the website at www.prohibitionsd.com and on Facebook,Instagram and Twitter @ProhibitionSD.
