Speakeasy Parties From the Party Team!
Celebrate your event in style with speakeasy parties from the Party Team! We can help turn your party into a swinging good time!
A History of Speakeasy Parties
On January 1st, 1920, the Volstead Act came into effect. The Act was designed to help law enforcement agencies uphold the 18th amendment, which banned the sale and manufacture of alcoholic beverages. For the next 13 years, America would be in an era colloquially known as “Prohibition.”
To skirt the new laws speakeasy saloons and parlors became commonplace so that individuals could imbibe without the threat of arrest. Usually, these parties required a password to get in, as that helped keep the long arm of the law out.
While Prohibition was repealed (the only time that’s happened in U.S. history), the spirit of the Roaring ’20s continues to live on. Now that we’re once again in the 20s, it’s high time to bring back the speakeasy party! Best of all, there’s no risk of getting hauled to jail!
So, what’s involved in Speakeasy Parties? Try these options from The Party Team!
Nothing adds an allure of class and mystery like a Speakeasy Casino. Bring a few blackjack, roulette, or craps tables into a back room and let your guests try to tempt Lady Luck to their side. Play for fun or prizes – just don’t be too loud! Otherwise, the coppers outside might catch wind of what’s going on behind the wall.
Speakeasy parties are an excellent excuse to dress to the nines. So, why not allow your guests to strut their stuff inside a photo booth? With 20s-era props, you can make the evening even more memorable! Best of all, we can add a green-screen option to create any kind of Speakeasy background you like.
Get in the mood with one of our high-quality event DJs! Speakeasy parties are not the same without some old-fashioned tunes to set the atmosphere. We can customize a playlist to fit your crowd, and our DJs can keep everyone engaged with interactive games and challenges! Having the right music and energy can make or break a party, so don’t settle for second-best!
If you’re having a speakeasy party, why not turn your venue into a good old-fashioned race track!

If you really want your speakeasy party to shine, you should have us host a Game Show! Survey Says is our in-house version of Family Feud, and it’s the perfect way to get your guests in the mood. We can customize the questions to be Speakeasy-appropriate, or we can offer generic questions – you choose! Our game shows are tons of fun and will create a night to remember!
