In 1933, Repeal Day restored the American right to enjoy a celebratory drink after alcohol had been outlawed for 13 years during Prohibition.

Atomic Liquors is celebrating its 7th annual Repeal Day-Eve Party on Dec. 4. Each year, Atomic Liquors celebrates Repeal Day by transforming the establishment into a Prohibition-era speakeasy. Inside, guests will enjoy special offerings created exclusively for the night. Attendees are encouraged to wear burlesque-themed costumes and will need a secret password to enter (the password is: "I have to go see a man about a dog"). There is no admission charge. Liquors will be open regular hours (4 p.m. - 2 a.m.), with the party starting at 8 p.m.

The Underground at the Mob Museum is celebrating Repeal Day with a Roaring '20s event from 7 p.m. to midnight Dec. 5. Flappers and wise guys will be able to foxtrot the night away in The Underground's authentic, 1920s-inspired speakeasy atmosphere. House-distilled moonshine and hand-crafted cocktails will flow all evening long in honor of the year Prohibition was repealed. Attendees are encouraged to don their snazziest rags and participate in the 1920s costume contest for a chance at the grand prize. Throughout the night, guests can bid on an array of great items and packages in the silent auction with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the non-profit Museum’s educational initiatives. Prizes include experiential packages from Las Vegas Strip properties and staycation packages from downtown properties, along with items that foodies and artist will love. The evening’s sponsors include Johnson Brothers and Jim Beam. General admission tickets are $69 (includes 3 cocktails and passed bites), VIP tickets are $99 (unlimited cocktails, passed bites and souvenir bag with 50 ml bottle of moonshine), and VIP tickets plus Oscar's Steakhouse dinner package are $149 per person. Museum members will receive a 10% discount.

Eureka! on East Fremont Street is offering $5 Templeton Rye Old Fashioneds on Repeal Day.

On Dec. 5, Bound Cocktail at The Cromwell will commemorate the repeal of Prohibition with flappers, limited-time specialty cocktails, giveaways, drink samples and more. Drinks will include the Burgundy Sour, Gentleman's Old Fashioned, and Woodford Julep. Cocktails are priced at $12 each.
