The Speakeasy Is Tonight! Here’s What You Need to Know.

Time: 6-10 PM

Place: 137 South Loudoun Street. Look for the fence with the PHW banner. The speakeasy will be held in the basement of this building.

Parking: The Palace and Hable lots off Indian Alley and the Cork Street lot at the corner of Cork and Loudoun Streets are the closest public parking lots to the event venue. These lots are FREE to park in after 6 PM. Map of downtown parking lots.

Admission: There will be an outdoor admission table with staff for check ins. If your PHW membership dues are current, you need only give your name (or your business name, if you are a small business/corporate member) to be checked in.
If you need to pay dues:
You may pay your dues on PayPal prior to coming to the event. Bring your receipt from PayPal as proof of purchase for any renewals made today. We will NOT have access to PayPal to verify your purchase at the event venue.
We will be accepting cash or checks only at the door tonight. Exact change is preferred!

Event Capacity: There is room for approximately 50 attendees inside the event. Please feel free to leave the event for a time and have dinner or walk around the downtown.

Entertainment: The Bob Larson Trio will play between 7-10 PM. The stories of Winchester’s time as a dry town will be read in two sections, one at 8 PM and one at 9 PM.

Silent Auction Items: In addition to the three prints (framed Ruth’s Tea Room, 1968 by Jane Caspar, framed George Washington’s Office by Eugene B. Smith, and Winchester Celebrates signed artist proof by Don Black), there will also be four gift baskets, with 1920s themed goodies and snacks, custom items with our attractive flapper poster girl from the event advertising, a Winchester: Limestone, Sycamores & Architecture book, Holiday House Tour Preview Party tickets, and more! You need not be present at the end of the evening for your high bid to win.

Please note: The PHW office will be closing around 4 PM on Friday to begin the event setup. We will not be available to answer emails or phone calls after this time.

  1. Janeen, the event was very successful. We filled the space Below the Fringe. Stay tuned for images probably in this upcoming Friday’s blog post!
    We usually hold a Memberfest event every fall. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time we’ve encouraged costumes, but it was such a hit we might do it again next year!
