Nov 6, 2012 —  When the US outlawed the sale of alcohol back in 1919, speakeasies sprouted up all across the country. About a century later, these now legal secret drinking lounges are still bastions of luxurious rebellion, where you can sit back with a classic cocktail and unleash your inner Gatsby. That is, if you can find them.

Hidden away from the prying eyes of police and the public, these speakeasies offer strong drinks and an authentic vibe harkening back to the Roaring Twenties. From secret drinking spots accessed through phone booths to the sultriest lounges tucked away behind restaurants, a speakeasy offers a degree of elegant exclusivity to go with your cocktail.

Find the hidden entrance to a shadowy speakeasy with roots tracing back a hundred years, or press a disguised buzzer to make your way through cryptic passages for a private reservation-only lounge with bold new concoctions and timeless martinis.

If you’re in the mood for a drinking experience more intimate and refined than your average bar, try finding the entrance to one of these great speakeasies from around the world. Just be sure to remember the secret password or you might find yourself locked out for the night!
