Our today’s topic is pretty interesting. We are going to talk about the speakeasy bars. I think it is quite safe to assume that most of our readers were not around when the speakeasy bars were really necessary, or even if they were, it is highly unlikely that they were old enough to drink back then. Yes, I am talking about the prohibition era that lasted from 1920 to 1933. The production, importation, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages were constitutionally banned in the US. During this time the speakeasy bars came into existence. Basically, these bars were set up in places where law enforcement would not be able to find them, but if you were a loyal customer, you could sit down and have a drink with peace of mind. Today, there is no need for speakeasy bars in the New York City, but people still visit drinking establishments that were modeled after the real ones for the nostalgia. The list I am talking about even have a few drinking dens that claim to be active during the ban era and are still operational. If this short intro got your juices flowing, I highly recommend that you take a look at the full article.
