Speakeasy Vibes in Modern Times: Prohibition Supperclub
The era of Al Capone, tailored suits, and big brass bands is in full swing at this joint. If you’re new to Houston, this should be one of your first big nights out. Apart from being a fabulous venue for any event, the space lives and breathes the 1920s and requires a great cocktail. Before you can suit up for this night of rip-roaring activity, you have to look the part. What kind of Marlowe man would you be if you didn’t leave your luxury downtown condo in style? Step into one of Marlowe’s Faves with style!
Get in the Mood for Marlowe’s Faves
So much of the 1920s centered around the fashions of the era. For women, it was fringe, kitten heels, and a peek of knee. For men, a classic suit with long four button coats and high-waisted pants (though Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby shows otherwise). Your first step toward creating the ultimate Prohibition experience is to dress for the time period. While you can find something in the vast wardrobe of your downtown luxury condo, Marlowe recommends a custom clothier like BALANI Custom Clothiers. Not only can you get something totally unique, it will fit perfectly and honor any design requests you have. It won’t be bulletproof, but hopefully you aren’t starring in a live action John Wick 2 anytime soon. Pro-tip: the John Wick franchise is another of Marlowe’s Faves.
A speakeasy wouldn’t be much without its cocktails! Prohibition Supperclub doesn’t disappoint with inventive cocktails and unique twists on traditional spirited beverages. Take the French 750 for instance: it’s a French 75…sort of; it uses strawberries and pop rocks. The Prohibited Mule makes a play on the classic Moscow Mule using vodka and pomegranate with the classic ginger beer. Don’t worry: Old Fashioneds and Sazeracs are mainstays along with Pisco Sours. Pair that with delicious plates featuring global food-spiration and you have a magical night of decadence.
Fun fact: Prohibition Supperclub offers even more than dazzling digs, amazing food, and even better drinks. On the weekends, it hosts racy burlesque shows in the Prohibition Theatre featuring, most notably, the Moonlight Dolls. Upcoming expansions include a cellar based food and beer conservatory.
