Speakeasy Series

ALL SPEAKEASY SERIES EVENTS ARE SOLD OUT! Thank you for your support and stay tuned for future Speakeasy events!

George Joslyn loved to entertain in what is considered the “original man cave.” He and his friends would gather for billiards, cocktails, cigars and even bowling in the Castle basement. We imagine many a lively conversation were had amongst George and his guests.

We’ve partnered with some of Omaha’s finest aficionados to bring you a new 2018 series that George would happily make a toast to. The Joslyn Castle Speakeasy Series is a monthly meet up that will feature tastings presented by professionals in their fields.

January through April on the third Thursday, we will host a tasting featuring one of the following favorites: Scotch, Bourbon, Wine and Classic Cocktails!

All events run 7pm-9pm. 

Single event tickets are $75.00 for non-members, or $67.50 for Keyholder members. Not yet a Keyholder? Get signed up today and start saving on ALL Joslyn Castle programming!
