The time has nearly come when we must say goodbye to our dear King Eddy Saloon, the last Skid Row bar. But eight days before last call on December 16th, LAVA presents a rare opportunity to tour the historic basement speakeasy, where a select group of fortunate explorers can see the remnants of Prohibition-era decor. Join us to soak up the considerable atmosphere of this place that is memorably featured in John Fante’s great downtown novel Ask The Dust.
Below are links to the four 10-minute tours which are scheduled from 7pm to 8pm on Saturday, December 8th. Follow the links to sign up for a specific tour (while available):
THE RULES: Space is extremely limited and promptness required for these small, free group tours, which are hosted by third generation proprietor Dustin Croick and Esotouric’s Richard Schave. Please visit the landing page to see a list of all available tour times. Registration for each tour slot will open at 10am on Thursday, and we expect reservations to go quickly. Please sign up for a user account in advance, and visit this webpage at that time if you would like to sign up. Attendees should plan to be upstairs in the bar at least ten minutes before their scheduled tour begins. Every guest must register individually (no plus ones).
