Not long after the turn of the century, in a decade known as the Roaring Twenties, the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages was outlawed and strictly prohibited. Nevertheless, men like Alphonse Capone and his mafia family, refused to adhere to the law, opening illegal speakeasies across the city of Chicago, offering alcohol, gambling and hotbox entertainment.
