The atmosphere is fantastic and the views of the city are amazing. Expect to pay high drink prices. The average martini was about $18. Also dress cool, the bar was VERY hot.

We had a small event at Prohibition with friends and family. From the planning with Gabbie to the excellent service that Afton and Megan provided throughout the night; they were all terrific! The space is "modern vintage" and we heard many comments on the uniqueness...More

I love Prohibition for a place to go and have great drinks and chat with friends. It's unique and different and the drinks, although expensive, are strong and creative. Try the Epiphany!
