Special Events

Speakeasy Series 2022

George Joslyn loved to entertain in what is considered the “original man cave.” He and his friends would gather for billiards, cocktails, cigars and even bowling in the Castle basement. We imagine many a lively conversation was had amongst George and his guests.

We’ve partnered with some of Omaha’s finest aficionados to bring you a series that George would happily toast. The Joslyn Castle Speakeasy Series is a monthly meet up that will feature tastings presented by professionals in their fields.

January through May on the third Thursday, we will host a tasting featuring some several spirits & libations inspired by George's man cave gatherings. Choose your favorites or get the whole series!

Doors open at 7:00 pm -- You'll start with a quick walk-through of George's man cave in the Castle basement, then go upstairs to the beautiful Music Room for the presentation at 7:30.

Miranda's Cheese Club is back to create the perfect pairings for the wonderful spirits served up by Kari and Alzuri. Savory or sweet, tart, bitter, creamy or rich—each bite is selected to complement the unique flavor profile of each liquor and make your palate dance!

Want to secure your spot for the series? We're offering a 10% discount when you buy the whole series!
