Prohibition worked so well that New York City is estimated to have had over 30,000 speakeasies, some of which are still open as clubs today.

The 1920s also saw the invention of the ‘booze cruise’, where boats would head into international waters and do circles while the passengers got spifflicated. This idea of a boat ride to nowhere caught on and became the foundation for today’s cruise industry.

Alcohol was never completely outlawed during prohibition: it could be prescribed by physicians. After Winston Churchill was hit by a car in New York City in 1931, the attending doctor prescribed him a minimum of 250 ml of spirits per day!
