Tour the Speakeasy at Sir Francis Drake Hotel
The Beefeaters at Sir Francis Drake know something you don't know.
We got around to reading the April issue of Budget Travel just a tad late this time around but we noticed a very cool thing they mentioned in their "This Just In!" section.
The Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco is celebrating its 80th anniversary by allowing guests to tour its hidden speakeasy. The hotel, which is now a Kimpton, is offering the tour as part of the "Ultimate Prohibition Package" which promises to transport guests back to the Roaring 20s.
The Prohibition Room, which served as a speakeasy during the 1920’s and 30’s, is located between the first and second floors of the hotel and is accessible only with a special turn-of-the-key on one of the Drake’s elevators.
The hotel also had a bunch of other promotions going on in April but the speakeasy package is still going on.
Starting at $209 a night, the package includes accommodations in a newly renovated King Deluxe Room; complimentary valet parking; signature cocktails at Bar Drake; a tour of the clandestine Prohibition Room; and a choice of a $50 dining credit for Scala's, the hotel's restaurant, or for in-room dining.
Tommy gun-toting mobsters and frantic prohibition officers not included.
