Boardwalk Empire Season 5 is the fifth and final season which concluded on 16 Oct 2014 with 8 episodes.
Love this era in film and TV where the men are so dapper and the women are always so well dressed and have the most gorgeous dresses. I now have to find a free weekend to binge watch this whole series. You can buy Boardwalk Empire Season 5 DVD or the region free Blu-ray or watch online instantly here.
What Wikipedia says about the Boardwalk Empire Series:
The series was created by Terence Winter and based on the book Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times and Corruption of Atlantic City by Nelson Johnson. Set in Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition era, the series stars Steve Buscemi as Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (based on the historical Enoch “Nucky” Johnson), a political figure who rose to prominence and controlled Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and early 1930s. The fifth season takes place in 1931, seven years after the previous season, during the Great Depression,with flashbacks to 1884 and 1897 detailing Nucky’s childhood and young adulthood.
Cocktail Masterclass at PURL
We went along to the PURL Speakeasy Bar in Marylebone for the launch of this box set. There we met Matteo who proceeded to make us their 2 special Prohibition non alcoholic Cocktails, The Big 7 Break (named for the 7 gangs) and the Empty Gun. We had a go at making these cocktails which was a lot more involved than the recipe suggests.
Matteo is a bit of an alchemist when it come to cocktails. He is so passionate about the cocktails that they serve at PURL and their unique presentation for some of those drinks. We were treated to a few other cocktails that are their best sellers.
They have a few cocktails that uses very old gins and whiskies and mixers. When they run out, these will be off the menu.
If you are looking for one of London’s favourites speakeasies, get along to PURL.
The complete fifth season of Boardwalk Empire is now out on DVD and Blu-ray.
