With the 1920s prohibition came the speakeasy, that secret, underground social club. Not everyone knew about it, just like not everyone knows about the hidden gems of Savannah’s local talent, culinary products, craft beers, spirits--all uniquely Savannah. And, the only way you’re going to find out is with the “Golden Ticket”.

 

So, grab your best flapper fringe, zoot suit and Fedora for the Secret Savannah Speakeasy! Come ready to meet the taste makers of what Savannah eats and drinks with small-plate tastings and libations aplenty. Taste Savannah’s best hand-crafted cocktails and craft brews and enjoy a wide array of music and entertainment, reminiscent of Savannah’s prohibition heydays – and rub elbows with the who’s who in town for the festival!

 

Wear your best prohibition-era attire and enter to win a "2017 Savannah Food & Wine Festival Weekend Package for Two". The Secret Savannah Speakeasy is presented by Eat It and Like It, Savannah Morning News, Savannah Magazine and Do Savannah. The event will take place in a secret location at the Georgia State Railroad Museum – you have to have the “Golden Ticket” and you’ll find out where when you arrive!

 

NEW this year, the Bartenders Challenge Final Round will be held at the Speakeasy!

The Band

Laiken Love & Fellowship of Love

Laiken Williams was born and raised in Nicholls, Ga. While attending CHS, Laiken was involved with many school activities. She held a state position as Secretary for the Georgia Association of Student Councils for 2.5 years.. Laiken’s other involvements included The National Honor Society, FBLA, Chorus, and Showchoir.

 

After graduating from Coffee High in 2004, Laiken set off to Savannah, Ga to attend Armstrong Atlantic State University to major in Political Science. While at AASU, Laiken was involved with Armstrong’s University Chorale as well as holding an officer position with Student Government and Campus Union Board. Around 2009 Laiken auditioned, and joined, Savannah Philharmonic Chorus. She is an active member to this day. She also performs with a smaller chamber choir   named I Cantori.

 

After realizing how important music is to her life, Laiken decided to step out and perform at open mics. This leap of faith led Laiken to be picked up by a band in 2011. From there Laiken has made waves into the Savannah music scene. In 2012 Laiken, AKA Laiken Love, started her own band Fellowship of Love. All of Laiken’s hard work paid off when she was awarded Musician of the Year through SONATA (Sponsors of New and Talented Artists) in 2015. Laiken’s local success has also allowed her to work with top corporate bands  that perform all over the southeast region.

 

Laiken is definitely on the rise!
