The Speakeasy Cocktail Festival Comes to Atlanta in September

This Labor Day weekend go back in time for a taste of the 1920s — no law-breaking required.

On September 1st and 2nd the Georgia World Congress Center will be transformed into a 1920’s speakeasy for The Speakeasy Cocktail Festival, a celebration of the past, progression and artistry of the Prohibition era and its evolution to the beer, wine and cocktails of today.

At the Speakeasy Cocktail Festival Gala guests can visit the Liquid Lounge for beer, wine and cocktail tasting pavilions, and the Culinary Corner which will feature the best of Atlanta’s southern cuisine. They can learn about cigar culture in the Cigar Lounge, or take part in the Back Room Charity Poker Tournament. Top mixologists will compete in the Makers & Shakers Mixology Championship for a chance to have their signature cocktail featured in the Georgia Dome and Georgia World Congress Center.
