Y’all are in for a treat... and a trick.
Perfect human Tiffani is off this week BUT Jason is taking over the Tequila Class tomorrow night so 🤷🏻‍♀️ What a good time fun night you’ll be in for! Go see him tomorrow at the Tequila Class before he’s off all day Friday.

Meet Jason's boss; the woman in charge of our entire operation; the reason this ship is still sailing; one of the few people on the planet actually using their college degree; HISTORIAN EXTRAORDINAIRE; the EIGHTH wonder if the WOOOOORLD!!! ..... KAYLA "don't try me" BLACK. 👏👏👏🤘🤘🥳🥳 Originally from Montoursville, Pennsylvania, she now calls Savannah home.

From conception and construction to ribbon cutting and grand opening, she's been our #a1sinceday1.
Kayla helps tame the wild ideas that we have, wash and polish barware, stay organized, keep us straight on historical facts, setup cocktail classes and even guard the #reddoors. Paul pins? Yeah, she approved that. Whiskey and Tequila Tasting? Yeah she approved that too.

Things she's into: smoky, bitter, tart, salty, sour, spicy but don't give her anything sweet! Her spirit of choice at the moment is Mezcal.

When she's not judging the #clouds for having #theaudacity to cover up the sun during her Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, she's at home cooking up a storm and having a grand ole time with her 3 furry children- Radar, Polgara, and Baker.

Did you know that there is technically no such thing as a vegetable!? Yeah, wild #amiright? Ask her about it when you visit the bar during the @americanprohibition museum hours.

Meet the newest member of our team, Kaylor! Originally from Knoxville, TN, she now calls Savannah Georgia her home. She trains behind the bar during the week and keeps the #reddoors protected on the weekends.
When she's not #throwingdueces in the air, she's playing with her HUGE four-legged friend, Milo.

Come by tonight and meet her. The #reddoors are open.

This is Brother Michael! He's from Lincoln, Nebraska. His favorite spirit is High West Whiskey and his favorite pastime is making noises that sound like words. When he's not smiling with his eyes, he spends time with his human daughter.
Check him out behind the bar this weekend during the musuem hour- 10-6pm. He also protects the #reddoors on the weekends from time to time.
