Vero Amore Speakeasy ‘The Still’ To Host Jim Beam Dinner

Jim Beam Dinner

Sept. 30, 7:30pm

The Still

2920 N. Swan Road
More Info

Imagine a time when a handshake, knock, or a secret word was the key to gaining entrance to a world of bathtub gin, evening gloves, and rip-roaring jazz.

During the prohibition, a slew of underground bars were established to conceal the illicit behaviors of the young and thirsty. While the 1920s may have passed, the thrill of a hidden passageway hasn’t completely evaporated in Tucson.

The Still, hidden inside Vero Amore, will be hosting a four-course dinner on Wednesday, September 30. Each plate will feature a handcrafted Jim Beam cocktail, complementing the dish.
