    Step back in time and experience Discovery Place Science in a roaring 1920s vibe while learning how a simple drink turns into a sensory masterpiece. Come ready to party like Gatsby dressed in your finest speakeasy-inspired threads while filling your mind and martini glass with the science behind alcohol!
