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 Thursday from 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 7 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.
