Jack Rose Dining Saloon
2007 18th St NW
Prohibition-era whiskey. Burlesque. Bottomless Champagne. There’s no better place to celebrate the abolition of the booze-prohibiting 18th amendment than a place with the largest selection of whiskey in the Western hemisphere. Jack Rose Dining Saloon is celebrating the day alcohol was made legal once again with its 8th Annual Repeal Day Celebration on Thursday, December 5th complete with Prohibition-era cocktails and punches, a special speakeasy-style Cellar Party, a Pappy Van Winkle-themed happy hour, complimentary champagne, burlesque performances and more, from 5 p.m. to close.
Saloon happy Hour becomes “The Pappy Hour” from 5 to 7:30 p.m., when Jack Rose will offer the full Pappy Van Winkle bourbon and rye whiskey line-up at special pricing. Already one of the only places in the city to try all six hard-to-find bottlings, this rare offering will allow guests to try the cult-favorite Pappy Van Winkle at a discount. Jack Rose’s regular happy hour specials including half-priced bites and beer discounts will also be available.
The Saloon will pour bottomless Champagne for only $40 all night featuring Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne, plus $10 cocktails harking back to the era. Burlesque dancers will perform for spectators throughout the evening, and the regular Saloon dinner menu will be available a la carte.
The basement’s hidden Whiskey Cellar will convert into a 30s-style speakeasy party at 7pm. The $75 ticket includes either a vintage whiskey tasting led by Bill Thomas (featuring eight .5oz pours from post-Prohibition distilleries Stitzel-Weller, Brown-Forman, Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Medley and Willett) or bottomless Champagne and select open bar (including beer, wine and select classic cocktails), plus passed food and a live burlesque performance. Tickets can be booked via Resy by clicking the option for the “7pm Cellar Party.”
And guests are of course encouraged to dress to the nines in flapper dresses and swanky suits, donning their most Prohibition-era attire, for a chance to win a $150 gift certificate.
There is no admission fee to Jack Rose’s 8th Annual Repeal Day Party and it is open to the public; while the Cellar Party is $75/person. For more information, please visit www.jackrosediningsaloon.com or call 202-588-7388.
