Who says Speakeasies don’t exist anymore? If you’re a fan of the roaring 20’s, this is for you! The 21+ Speakeasy night at the Carnegie Science Center happens Friday, April 14th, 6pm – 10pm. Period costumes are encouraged! Get ready for a party atmosphere on all four floors.

What happens at Speakeasy Science? Aside from wearing your favorite 1920’s attire, you’ll get to experience the science of the prohibition era, along with the culture during that time. There are no kids involved. This means there will be “deeper science content, riskier experiments, and party games with your friends.”

Activities and entertainment include a variety of fun things to do: listen to live jazz music from Phat Man Dee, learn to Charleston with Arthur Murray Dance School, meet the man behind “The Odd, Mysterious & Fascinating History of Pittsburgh”, talk to a chemical physicist from Quantum Spirits about the science of distilling, and so much more!

Speakeasies were popular back in the 1920’s and 30’s, which was an illegal way of drinking since alcohol was banned. People would go to these small hidden bars in the late hours and drink until the sun came up. This is your chance to have that feeling!

The night is part of the Science Center’s adult themed nights. The 21+ over nights will “challenge you, entertain you, and provide you with something to do with your friends.”

The event is sponsored by Long River Ranch Water Hard Seltzer.
