Prohibition and so there was a lot of organized crime and actual gangsters who ran all this. Very interesting if you ask me, I always felt like i would have been someones Bonnie if I was back in that time. Well, now that you have gotten a brief history of the topic, let's move on. Shall we? I am introducing this into my blog because I believe that they are the new scene. Here are a couple speakeasy themed bars (as it is legal now) that may come of interest to you, if you live in the Northwest area or are visiting:
- Tavern Law, Located on Capitol Hill, 1406 12th Avenue, Seattle WA 98122. Open daily 5pm-2am. Supposedly, they have a phone that is located at the entrance you have to pick up to gain access into the upstairs speakeasy. This is pretty cool. You've got to admit it. Hands down. http://www.tavernlaw.com/
- The Hideout, Located on First Hill, 1005 Boren Avenue, Seattle WA 98104. Business Hours varies. I have not been here yet, but have heard nothing but good things. They serve food and top notch liquor. Can anyone ask for more when your trying to have a good time? http://www.hideoutseattle.com/
- Knee High Stocking Co, Also located on Capitol Hill, 1356 East Olive Way, Seattle, WA 98122. Open everyday, 6pm to close. This place is naughty and nice. Did you not see the name? All I can think is: Sex Appeal. Rawr. Don't leave without having some of their mouth watering food and My Absconded French Girlfriend cocktail. Too die for. Yum. http://www.kneehighstocking.com/
- Bathtub Gin & Co, Located Downtown, 2205 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA 98121. Not sure of business hours but this place is amazing. I went here for my sisters birthday and I loved it. Amazing staff. Owner is very laid back and hospitable. It almost reminded me of a pirates den. Or something to that effect....
