Hub Town HIDEAWAY - Valentine's Day "secret" Event
It was only 100 years ago when breweries and pubs alike were in the midst of prohibition, making the manufacture, transport and sale of alcohol illegal. It was thought that it was the "ultimate sin" to drink alcohol...which was when the "speakeasy" came to life.
A speakeasy back in the day was an "illicit establishment that sold alcoholic beverages," so called because of the practice of speaking quietly about such a place in public, or when inside it, so as not to alert the police or neighbours. In fact, these places were typically well hidden, with just a few subtle clues leading you to its whereabouts and a secret word or phrase was the only way you could assure you would get in!
Now here we are in 2020 and although we are no longer in an alcohol-restricted country, we thought it would be fun to bring back the excitement of the speakeasy right here in Okotoks (minus the burlesque)!
Inspired by Betty Lou's Library in Calgary, we give you Hub Town HIDEAWAY! But a speakeasy wouldn't be genuine with just beer and no exciting cocktails now would it?
This is why we have teamed up with our soon-to-be neighbours down the street, Firehall Distillery, to create a menu of beer cocktails that brings all the fun, boozy flavours known and loved, right in house! So expect to see a new and exciting menu of beer cocktails and Dani, our mixologist for the night, awaiting you when you arrive!!
But that's not it...we're also working with the incredible Soul Sugar catering to provide an assortment of two-bite canapés to savour while partaking of your beer cocktails. Why? To keep your those cocktails in check of course - if you so choose!
In the meantime, each reservation will enjoy a 2.5 hr seating on Valentine's Day, only the BEST 1920s "modern" music all night long and ambience like you've never had in Okotoks before!
If we don't sell out, we will allow walk-ins too but your food has to be pre-ordered, so wait too long and you'll be out of luck! If you don't want to risk it, buy your tickets HERE to receieve your entry password, then put on your "cocktail attire," (that just means leave your hoodies at home) and prepare to go back in time with us! This night is for fun, so get ready to be part of a room full of people enjoying a secret evening like they did back in the day. Come as a one...two...ten...doesn't matter to us! Just come to have fun.
Complete my night with food!
