LT Pick

The Bars and Brothels tour begins at the corner of Park and Main Streets, in front of the Livingston Bar and Grille. The tour features the history of several downtown bars and their owners; the Red Light District on South B Street; and other historic buildings that are part of the bars and brothels’ stories.
Learn about how bars reinvented themselves during Prohibition from 1918-1933; what changes occurred for long-standing brothel operations in 1948; the Livingston “Riot” of 1985 that erupted in the alley behind the Wrangler and the Longbranch, and more.
Tours are led by museum staff and volunteers. Each tour is approximately 1.5 hours long with multiple stops along the way. Please arrive 15 minutes early if possible. Sturdy shoes, water, sunscreen, and a light jacket are recommended.
