Go mob-handed for 'outlawed liquor' in underground Las Vegas event space

The Mob Museum's new prohibition-era exhibition space can accommodate cocktail receptions, meetings and presentations.

The Mob Museum (aka the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement) in Las Vegas has opened a new space called The Underground.

The Underground’s basement-level speakeasy and distillery, complete with a ‘secret’ side entrance only that only those with the proper password can access, represent focal points of the Museum’s exciting new interactive prohibition-history exhibition. 

The Underground measures 2,814 square feet and can accommodate up to 130 guests in three separate spaces.

Meetings and events booked here mean groups can be offered an immersive experience, that transports guests back to the 1920s when outlawed liquor gave rise to the Mob.

Exhibits and artefacts reveal fascinating tales about historical figures, cultural developments and social change associated with Prohibition, while the speakeasy offers signature Prohibition-era drinks as well as moonshine and craft beer produced in the adjacent distillery.

 The Underground Speakeasy

  • The Underground encompasses 260sqm square feet with luxurious, Art Deco design motifs.

 The Fitting Room 

  • The Fitting Room is concealed by a secret entrance off the Speakeasy.

  • Can accommodate up to 10 guests in a lounge atmosphere.
