Jan 25, 2013 —  The official speakeasy may have its roots in America as a cool subterfuge to the government ban on liquor in the 1920s, but with booze-loving expats flocking to London and Paris the secret eventually got out. And while those in Europe were laughing at the Eighteenth Amendment, it wasn’t hard for them to take the best of the shadowy lairs of wantonness and incorporate them into their own. After all, the bustling bars in London and Paris have been perfecting timeless cocktails and philandering in cool nameless dens long before the prudish Puritans across the Atlantic finally got their act together.

Across the European continent, hidden in backstreets and in basement haunts with signless doors, are lounges fully embracing the decadent nostalgia of the Prohibition era. Because even though the speakeasy name may be American, the irresistible charm of some mysterious salon catering to the in-the-know few is universal. And because time is money, and cocktails are expensive, we at Party Earth did the heavy lifting for you, and are spilling the beans on the little secrets that these iconic cities have to offer.
