A once-stately stone and brick, turreted commercial building in Wyoming's capital, Cheyenne. This was once home to the Tivoli, a restaurant and saloon built in 1883 by a brewery from Denver. Ladies, with or without escorts (very uncommon), were welcome. The structure was rebuilt and given two additional floors in 1892. Prostitution was legal in Wyoming till 1938 and the upper stories of the Tivoli were well known to many ladies of the evening and their clients. Itâ€™s said that during prohibition, there was a popular, fashionable speakeasy in the basement. Wyoming was the last state to ratify Prohibition. Due to disfavor of the dry laws, bootlegging of "hooch" between Colorado and here ran rampant until the amendment was repealed. The old Lincoln Highway ran past this building.
