Celebrate the Jazz Age as you enjoy a craft cocktail in our historic Bingham-Hanna Mansion!

The Cleveland History Center is hosting their next History on Tap event on Saturday, June 19, 2020 from 5-9pm. Celebration Cleveland’s Jazz Age in the historic Bingham-Hanna Mansion, transformed to feel like a 1920s speakeasy!

Guests should dress to impress, wear their dancing shoes and be ready to enjoy an evening out in the Roaring 20s!


Highlights Include:

–              Prohibition-style cocktail lessons with the Western Reserve Distillery

–              Pop-up talk on Cleveland’s Mob history

–              Highlighted Collection pieces including a pop-up display of 1920’s attire from the Chisholm Halle Costume Collection.

–              Themed activities, raffle, and Costume Contest!


History on Tap is the Cleveland History Center’s after-dark adult programming series celebrating the creepy, the sexy, and the little known stories from Cleveland history.
