Why? Society Lounge!

Last night, Matthew and I stepped back in time to 1933 for a private Prohibition Repeal Day party at Society Lounge on East 4th Street.

We were welcomed with flapper-style waitresses serving small bites of bruschetta and seafood salad on wonton crisps. There was a list of Prohibition-era cocktails, from Old Fashioneds to Scofflaws to El Presidentes, all hand-crafted by skilled bartenders.

I even found a mocktail or two I could enjoy from Society’s Temperance menu. Who says you can’t enjoy a fun beverage while pregnant?

Society’s Temperance menu includes drinks made with the same skill and in-house ingredients, just without the booze. Whether you’re pregnant, the designated driver, or just on a cleanse, these offer a nice way to still feel fancy at this elegant location.

I especially enjoyed The Buzz, made with local honey, grapefruit, and orange water, and The Brown Cow, made with house-made root beer syrup, heavy cream, and soda water.

We found a cozy booth and some good friends with which to enjoy the evening. Society has lots of cozy little nooks for enjoying your cocktails in comfort!

Aside from the cocktails, there was big band-style live music and flapper dancers providing entertainment. At the end of the evening, there was a champagne toast to “Alcohol: the cause and solution to all the world’s problems.”

An evening at Society is truly a complete experience, from the atmosphere to the drinks to the entertainment. If you’re looking for a way to step back in time and enjoy a fabulous hand-crafted cocktail or two, check out Society Lounge. Pearls and feathers are optional!
