If a trip to New Orleans isn’t in the cards for Mardi Gras this year, have no fear! A little dose of drunken history in Old Sac is within reach. Break out your beads and masks – it’s time to head out on a speakeasy tour and pub crawl through some of Old Sacramento’s below-ground watering holes.
Mardi Gras Speakeasy Tour & Pub Crawl
Saturday, February 6
5: 00 pm – 7:00 pm
The Mardi Gras Speakeasy Tour & Pub Crawl begins at the River City Saloon, which is decorated in ‘prohibition-era’ style. Your group will then head to several other speakeasy hot spots, including famed Delta King riverboat, once a floating hotspot for prohibition drinking, jazz bands, and gambling.
Along the way, learn fascinating tidbits about the people and events that shaped the city’s early history as one of the ‘wettest cities in the union’ during this pivotal era in American history. At each stop you can grab a timeless cocktail or beer while you ponder Sactown’s rich history and dirty little secrets.
