Special Events

Speakeasy Series 2021

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 were 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 make a toast to. The Joslyn Castle Speakeasy Series is a monthly meet up that will feature tastings presented by professionals in their fields.

February through May on the third Thursday, we will host a tasting featuring one of the following favorites: Rum, Brandy, Scotch, and Gin!

All events run 7:30pm-9pm, doors open at 6:45pm.


Here's a taste of each event:
