A party that hasn’t been seen in 85 years…Dark rooms drenched in flowers, silk ball gowns, tailored tuxedos, and illegal booze. Hallways dripping in mysterious women and criminal miscreants. Excitement fueled by Federal agents, the Cold Water Army, sultry dancing, dirty politicians and a red hot band. Balconies overflowing with violent outbreaks or stolen kisses, and, bars pouring out the lifeblood of Detroit crime and the instantly re-legalized fiscal windfall of distilling. Grab a glass of ill gotten champagne, and join The Detroit History Club for The Repeal Ball.
On December 5th, 1933, thirteen long years of American prohibition came to an end.
Guests are required to dress for the occasion in full 1930’s glamor. Tuxedo or dark suit and evening or cocktail dress.
