Description

It's classier than a pub crawl and tipsier than a history tour! You'll spend three leisurely hours picking up some history, along with local libations, as you stroll through Savannah's Landmark Historic District. Unlike a rowdy pub crawl, your drinks are already paid for and have been chosen to represent the most distinctive favorites that have come and gone throughout the city's 285 year history. Party like it's 1799 with a glass of Madeira wine (and a cheese plate) at Jazz'd Tapas Bar, then sample six different meads (and even more varieties of honey) at Savannah Bee Company. After the mead, it's time for a mint julep at the 17Hundred90 Inn & Restaurant. Then end with a bang- a glass of Chatham Artillery Punch at the Pirate's House! Let a local show you how to get up close and personal with Savannah's delightful establishments, delicious alcoholic delicacies, and interesting history.

Meet in the NW corner of Telfair Square, directly across from the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences. Then follow your guide as they show you how to enjoy Savannah the way Savannahians do - with a drink in hand. Learn the city’s most interesting history on a late afternoon stroll while sampling some favorite Southern libations. One of them was even invented in Savannah over 200 years ago!  Along the way, you will pick up a little knowledge while also enjoying historically Savannah-centric libations from a few of downtown's finer watering holes.

Stops/drinks included in ticket price:

  • Jazz'd Tapas Bar for Madeira wine, a favorite drink in 19th century Savannah. No drinking on an empty stomach, so Jazz'd will also provide their Baked Cheese Terra Cotta plate, specially chosen to pair with the wine, for sharing with your fellow travelers.
    • Savannah Bee Company for a mead tasting. An all-things-honey gift shop, Savannah Bee is buzzing over their excitement to have you sample 5 different artisanal meads at their mead bar. The tasting concludes with a tiny treat- a little piece of chocolate from local chocolatier Adam Turoni!
    • The17Hundred90 Inn and Restaurant for mint juleps, that most famous of Southern cocktails. We'll breeze into their bar, grab these cool, minty refreshments, then amble over to Columbia Square. Imbibe your drinks while drinking in the beauty around you as the sun begins to set on the city.
    • The Pirates' House for samples of Savannah's signature drink- Chatham Artillery Punch. The drink and the building both originated in Savannah sometime in the 18th century and both are the stuff of legend.

    You'll be finished up - and loosened up just in time to go and grab a bite to eat, where you can impress the people at the table next to you with all the tales of Savannah you learned along the way!
