On weekend nights, The Palm Court at the Langham Hotel, London’s classic spot for afternoon tea, transforms into a speakeasy-style gin bar. Sipsmith’s Jared Brown (featured in the October 2012 issue) worked with the Langham’s mixologist, Alex...

Employees Only is a gem in New York City. Located in one of New York’s hippest neighborhoods on Hudson Street, it looks unassuming from the outside. You’ll find a forest green awning outside with white block letters that read “EO” and a statue of...

This venue closed in the summer of 2017.

The Library is a speakeasy in the grand old style. You'll need a password to get in, but they will give it to you next door at The Study, which, by the way, is a delicious Jason Atherton date spot. You can...

Rare is the bar that can be all things to all people successfully, but so it is for Gallow Green. Located atop The McKittrick Hotel, the bar is a hot spot for weekend brunch, especially among art lovers who plan to gallery hop around the Chelsea...

Nybrogade 10, 1203 København K, Denmark
Situated across from the Thorvaldsons Museum next to the Christianslot Canal this cocktail bar is inspired heavily by a vintage motif (think 1800s meets prohibition speakeasy). With well worn leather couches, cozy small rooms, vintage wallpaper,...

Box Social is about as close as you'll ever get to a classic speakeasy—small, nondescript, curtains drawn, and upon arrival you'll wonder if you need a secret password to enter. Deemed Portland's premiere drinking parlor, the Box is all about...

I thought twice about posting this highlight, as the selfish part of me doesn't want more people to know about this neighborhood favorite, but it's just too good not to share. Hidden behind the Stone Street Coffee Shop lies one of the best places...

The Franklin Bar, a sort of modern speakeasy, peddles period-accurate cocktails (with a few inventive twists) served up by modish, bow-tied bartenders. Best to make a reservation to snag a spot.

Located in Logan Square, and featuring one of the more eclectic wine lists I've seen in a while, Telegraph Wine Bar is the perfect place to swing by for a leisurely bite to eat and drink. The antique fixtures and lights provide a bit of a...

The line extending from the entrance to Crif Dogs and spilling onto St. Marks Place on Saturday nights can be a bit misleading. Sure, their bacon-wrapped, chili and coleslaw drenched, "spicy redneck" hot dog is horribly delicious (and the arcade...

While it's not the clandestine experience it claims to be (we didn't have to ask for the mayor like the website says), The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town is a fun time beneath the Breakfast Club restaurant in Spitalfields. To enter, you walk through an...

This is a slightly odd place. It's in the middle of a commercial area, with no restaurants in sight. If you get to the right block, it's actually behind a large building. You have to knock and be let in like a speakeasy. Once inside, it's a pretty...

728 King St, Alexandria, VA 22314, USA
Alexandria has been around since before the founding of our country and has always been home to a number of taverns. However, during Prohibition, Alexandria was also home to something else: a speakeasy. In the decades since alcohol started flowing...

Yangon’s very own speakeasy is now open...for those who can find it! Located on Nawady St, in the up-and-coming Yaw Min Gyi corridor, eager patrons will need to follow orange tiger footprints which lead to a hidden doorway. True to theme, the bar...

Prime Tower, Hardstrasse 201, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland
The owners of this bi-level bar in the Prime Tower took great pains to create its visually stunning speakeasy-style décor: the impressive 80-year-old wooden bar and six tons of subway tiles were shipped from New York City. On a recent evening,...

Here's the skinny: I'm not going to tell you the address, or the phone number. All I can tell you is, there's a gin mill somewhere in Milan that's the bees knees. You just need to know who to ask, once you know your onions then everything'll be...

Though it was described to me as a bar that "only foreigners go to," I love MyNY so much that I can't stop going back. The shining stars of the menu are the kobé beef burger (worth every centavo of the R$40 price tag) and a variety of drinks...

Looking for a late-night speakeasy? This one's a charmer. The Bar Americain's fairly hidden from the street, but when you get down there, it's like going back in time. You find a 1930s, art deco wonder, with white-jacketed cocktail waiters and an...
