Sip on sparkling spirits and have a roarin’ good time at the 20th Annual History Uncorked, Pittsburgh’s premier party for young professionals.

Presented by BNY Mellon, History Uncorked: Roaring ’20s is inspired by the History Center’s upcoming exhibition, American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, which will step back in time to an era of gangsters, flappers, suffragists, bootleggers, and real-life legends like Al Capone and Carry Nation.

The event will offer a silent auction, an evening of great food from Pittsburgh’s hottest local eateries, delicious drinks from Wigle Whiskey and Penn Brewery, and more:

  • Attempt to break out of a pop-up escape room, courtesy of The Imaginarium
  • Snap speakeasy selfies in a ’20s-themed photobooth
  • Enjoy live entertainment by The Boilermaker Jazz Band
  • Show off your best moves with DJ Mad Maxx and the always-popular fifth floor dance party
  • Explore six floors of engaging exhibits, including American Spirits and the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum

Channel your inner Gatsby and come dressed to impress in 1920s-inspired attire!

Guests must be age 21 and over to attend and must provide ID at door.
