It's the 1920s and here you are a speakeasy: It's the inaugural Prohibition Night party at the 1933 Club, where there will be booze, secret knocks, peek holes and passwords.

"An era when Hidden Rooms & Underground Clubs were full of rebels, dressed to the nines and ready to sip till the sun came up," the restaurant said on its event page on Facebook. "Get ready to dance the night away!"

The event features live music, provided by Studio O Rhythm Section, and guests are encouraged to dress for the theme: 1920s Prohibition. Best dressed gets a prize.

Say the organizers: "Ladies: think feathers, fur, diamonds & pearls. Men: you will look quite dapper in your suits, bowties/ties, and top-hat/fedoras."

1933 is using the night to debut new Executive Chef Matt Hearn, from Hell's Kitchen.

The party kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at 7900 Downing Ave. Tickets are $50, and can be purchased at KCLEF.com or 1933. Proceeds will be donated to the Kern County Law Enforcement Foundation.
