Independence Day Sail on the Bay!

Join us for the second year in a a row as we celebrate Independence Day in style – with a historic sail across the Bay! Climb aboard FDR’s presidential vessel, the USS Potomac, as we dance and sing and drink the day away!

Originally commissioned in 1934, the USS Potomac served as Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Presidential Yacht, and was known as the “Floating White House.” Complete with presidential seal in it’s floorboards and a secret elevator, this beautiful old ship will make a three-hour cruise exclusively for Speakeasy guests on Thursday, the Fourth of July. Launching from Jack London Square, we’ll sail along San Francisco’s waterfront, past Alcatraz, and out under the majestic Golden Gate Bridge.

Enjoy handcrafted libations as you are whisked away to a bygone era. Cut a rug on the dance floor as our five-piece dixieland band plays patriotic tunes and other songs from yesteryear. So whether you’re snuggling close to the one you love, or bringing a gaggle of friends and ready to have a good time, this party is not to be missed!

Space is extremely limited so get your tickets now–and we’ll see you on the Bay!
