The Tallac Historic Site is a treasure of bygone times when recreationists and excursionists flocked to Lake Tahoe to get away from the big cities at the turn of the last century. The grand balls of the 1920s were talked about throughout the Comstock and Sierra Nevada.

Step back in time on the 2nd, it will be the bee’s knees! Come wearing your best 1920s attire (though this is optional, should the rumors be confirmed).

Enjoy beverages and hors d’oeuvres, games, music, dancing, fabulous raffle prizes, and a lot of good old-fashioned fun! You must know the password to buy “special” drinks (this is available in the museum prior to the event, or ask a volunteer that evening).

All monies benefit the Tallac Historic Site.

Speakeasy bars came into prominence in the United States during the Prohibition era (1920–1933, longer in some states). During that time, the sale, manufacture, and transportation (bootlegging) of alcoholic beverages was illegal throughout the United States. Speakeasies largely disappeared after Prohibition ended in 1933. The speakeasy-style establishment has been resurrected and gaining in popularity.

FREE admission (not suitable for small children) Tables can be reserved for ten clams per person (dollars) This includes one free drink each.

Location: Tallac Historic site, 1 Heritage Way, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150
