East Village in New York City is the home to cocktail culture in the Big Apple, with this walking tour taking you to some of the finest cocktail makers to sample the best that NYC has to offer. Starting in Tompkins Square Park this tasty tour will take you to some of the most famous cocktail digs, as well as the hidden gems in this diverse New York City neighbourhood. Cocktail lovers prepare yourselves, as this tour is likely to blow your socks off in more ways than one.

NYC isn’t all just about the drinks themselves, with a huge story behind what makes this region so important when it comes to cocktails. You’ll learn the history of the modern cocktail, and listen in with interest as your guide talks of the drink’s role through the prohibition period in America. You’ll visit the bars of former speakeasies, the illegal bars that operated through the prohibition, and share stories of the gangsters and politicians that ran and supported these bars during the great dry.

To finish we will swing by the famous Astor Wines, New York City’s number one wine and liquor premises, where you will get a great lesson from your guide on how to choose the best spirit when buying from the best. We will chat about the numerous micro-distillers that are opening continuously, and by the time we’re done you should be ready to replicate some of the amazing cocktails that you tried during the tour.

“Brian was awesome! He picked some really cool spots to check out and he knew so much about the culture and history of the area. My only complaint was that the group was a little large (14 people) so that made it feel crowded at times when we were in the bars. Thank you Brian for being a great tour guide! We will definitely be back.”

“This tour was a lot of fun! We visited some great little bars that we wouldn't have found on our own and Josh educated us on speakeasies and prohibition. Really good way to explore the east village.”

“I had an awesome time hanging out with our tour guide, Brian. Brian was a great guide - he was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. I highly recommend attending this tour as the 'speakeasy' bars that we went to were very cool and nostalgic!”
