NEVADA - LEARN HISTORY THROUGH LIBATIONS WITH THE MOB MUSEUM’S PROHIBITION COCKTAIL COLLECTION


LAS VEGAS (July 2018) - The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is changing the way guests learn about  American history through the tempting cocktail menu offered at The Underground speakeasy. At the helm of the cocktail program for the Museum’s new, comprehensive Prohibition history exhibition is Beverage Director Clint Thoman. His cocktail recipes are inspired by the 1920s and 1930s.  

With concoctions spiked with the Museum’s own house-distilled Moonshine to classics made with vodka, gin, bourbon and rum, Thoman’s menu features items such as the Lock & Key, made with gin, tea, vermouth, blueberries and sugar - served unassumingly in an innocent-looking teacup. Meanwhile, The Underground Old-Fashioned is mixed with bourbon, vanilla bean, brown sugar and bitters and comes clandestinely concealed; guests who order this classic are presented with a rocks glass and a book which, when opened, hides a flask filled with the libation, ready to be poured over ice. Even the presentation of the cocktails plays to Prohibition times.

NEVADA - NOW ON DISPLAY AT THE MOB MUSEUM: “MOB AT THE MOVIES”

Artifacts from Popular Culture Demonstrate America’s Fascination with the Mob


LAS VEGAS (June 2017) – Now on display at The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, “Mob at the Movies” explores how organized crime has been portrayed in popular culture. Featuring artifacts from well-known movies and television shows, the exhibit demonstrates the history of Americans’ fascination with the Mob in popular culture.

Among the artifacts, a 1952 poster from the film “The Captive City” featuring John Forsythe and Joan Camden is on display. This artifact has an interesting local connection--Senator Estes Kefauver, who held one of the 1950s U.S. Senate hearings into organized crime in the Museum’s courtroom, provided the epilogue to the film, which was filmed entirely in Reno.
