What is the Hollywood Speakeasy Bar Tour? It’s a time-traveling caper that starts by whisking you back to golden-age Hollywood, then transports you to a rooftop bar overlooking the neon-lit streets, before taking you inside a hidden historic speakeasy and the birthplace of the Oscars.

The Hollywood Speakeasy Bar tour starts at the famed Frolic Room (inside the Pantages Theatre). Since the 1930’s the bar has been used by many actors that graced the stage next door and was a regular haunt of Los Angeles poet Charles Bukowski. Next we’ll visit a recent arrival here from France, Mama Shelter – and her beautiful rooftop bar. From there we can look over the rooftops and see all the way from the iconic Hollywood Sign to the towers of downtown Los Angeles.

After that we’ll discover a speakeasy bar that’s hidden in the oldest house in Hollywood, before ending the tour at a glamorous restaurant used by the stars from 1919 to today. During the course of the night we’ll regale you with stories and anecdotes detailing how this small farming town in the Wild West became the most famous place on earth. By the end of the tour you’ll have learned a lot of Hollywood history, enjoyed cocktails that fitted each time and location and eaten some good food. In other words a great experience of Los Angeles.

Join us on the Hollywood Speakeasy Bar Tour and have the adventure of a nighttime.
