Auckland's Museum of Transport and Technology is opening its doors later than usual this weekend, transforming into an immersive speakeasy that kicks it back to prohibition days.

Dig out your finest flapper, bootlegger, showgirl, sly grogger, gangster or Great Gadsby garb and head along from 7pm. There will be prizes for the best dressed.

The organisers have left no stone unturned for MOTAT Prohibition. Within the borders of the Western Springs museum attendees will take a trip back in time with vintage karaoke, burlesque performances, swing and salsa dancing lessons, live jazz, personalised tarot readings, deco makeovers, bespoke shadow portraits and adult games.

The Club Moderne's Grammophone Bar will the spot to dabble in a tipple or two. Develop an appreciation for hard liquor at an absinthe tasting experience, revisit classic gin concoctions on the cocktail lawn and sip on spiked teas.
