BETHLEHEM, PAWednesday, February 15, 2017 – As Hotel Bethlehem is nearing its 95th year this May, they will be hosting numerous “Roaring 20s” events in April. The hotel was the host to weddings, business meetings, birthday parties and debutant balls since opening in 1922.

This April, Hotel Bethlehem wants to recreate history by offering guests an experience they won’t forget!

The Tap Room at Hotel Bethlehem hosts Thursday night Jazz every week, but will be showcasing Roaring 20s bands throughout the month of April to feature their history. Specialty themed cocktails will be available in the Tap Room all month long for guests to enjoy.

Guests will receive a secret password upon arrival that will open the doors for their stay back in time. The package will start at $299 based on availability, while restrictions and blackout dates may apply.
