1439 Griswold St, Detroit, MI 48226, USA
Cafe D'Mongo's Speakeasy, a tarnished gem hiding in plain sight in Downtown Detroit, encapsulates stylish patrons buzzing with alcohol and wallowing in Detroit's glittering Jazz Age glory. Artifacts, oversized vintage photographs, and brass...

510 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014, USA
This West Village "speakeasy" was a great choice for celebrating a 30th birthday. Hidden behind a neon psychic sign and very intimidating bouncer, Employees Only has an impressive creative cocktail list. I recommend the West Side and the Ginger...

Lower Nob Hill, San Francisco, CA, USA
Bourbon and Branch is a traditional speakeasy. Their 8 house rules—hushed voices and no cell phones among them—encourage neighborly conversation in a very relaxed setting. It's a great way to meet people if you're traveling alone as...

Editors' note: Citizen R&D has closed, but Citizen Public House is still in business. 

Citizen R&D turns making a great drink into an art form. This Scottsdale speakeasy is hidden away above its restaurant counterpart, Citizen...

530 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001, USA
The entrance is guarded by intimidating men with iPads, Gucci suits and oil-slick black shoes. The streets are industrial, almost empty; across the way is a notorious strip club, one of the sign’s Ss flickering in desperation to stay lit. A wind...

472 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2B2, Canada
At Bar Chef, owner Frankie Solarik’s mad-scientist bartenders wear porkpie hats that recall a classic speakeasy. But they mix modern potions. They inject their martinis with green olive–flavored foam and serve punch bowls such as the Jimmy Cliff,...

Nybrogade 10, 1203 København, Denmark
To describe Ruby as a hidden gem is an understatement as big as the surprise you will feel as you push through its unassuming, unmarked door. I caught a taxi to Ruby and it was only the driver's firm insistence that he hadn't made a directional...

3971 N Williams Ave, Portland, OR 97212, USA
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...

132 9th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA
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...

112 S 18th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103, USA
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.

2601 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647, USA
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...

6 Powell St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1E9, Canada
A clandestine spot to imbibe in Gastown, the Diamond is the speakeasy when you're in Vancouver. Bar none, one of the best bars I have been to on recommendation from Nathan at Judas Goat. They will make you anything here, like a tasty pisco sour....

804 Market St, San Diego, CA 92101, USA
If you want to check out where the San Diego locals hang out, you have to stop by Bootlegger, located on the border of Gaslamp. The bar itself is unique, with a beautiful stone top and lined with hand-carved wooden panels imported from Mexico....

Vicolo Cellini, 30, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
At this speakeasy-inspired cocktail bar near Chiesa Nuova, hipster bartenders pour and shake American classics like Manhattans, Sazeracs and Old-Fashioneds in a smoky lounge. To gain admittance, make a booking and come armed with the secret...

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...

A friend and I attended the Osheaga music festival out at Parc Jean-Drapeau in August 2014. Three days of great live music on various stages in a super city was amazing, but after getting out one late night, we decided to check out Big In Japan...

Come for a sip of the Cliff Bell at happy hour (that's Dewar’s Scotch, sweet vermouth, Absinthe Ordinare, and orange bitters), stay for the live jazz and the lively 1930's atmosphere. Cliff Bell's jazz bar in downtown Detroit is a slinky watering...

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,...

Liberty is an artisanal, small-batch coffee roaster that arranges tastings by appointment. If you're lucky, the husband and wife team will also have some of their wonderful cakes, muffins, and bars on offer to go with their perfectly pulled...

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...

Forresters Ln, Te Aro, Wellington 6011, New Zealand
A throwback to the roarin' twenties, you can find (or maybe not find) an emerging speakeasy-style bar culture hitting the streets in Wellington. Themed bars that you would never know about or find unless someone told you first are all the rage....

R. Pedroso Alvarenga, 1285 - Itaim Bibi, São Paulo - SP, 04531-012, Brazil
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...

20 Sherwood St, Soho, London W1F 7ED, UK
This cavernous dining room is one of central London’s most affordable glamorous dining experiences. Gilded columns and uniformed waiters recall a Parisian brasserie, and the food is committedly French. Yet the set lunch (carottes...
