SPEAKEASY-STYLE BOSTON BARS
Party like Gatsby
Can you imagine? There was once a time in United States history when it was illegal to buy or sell alcohol. Thankfully, those dark years are long gone, but the concept of the once necessary “speakeasys,” or hidden bars, have transformed into lively (and legal) nightlife hot spots. The 1920s enchantment of the Prohibition era is alive and kicking.
Join the fun and celebrate ”The Great Gatsby” mania at one of these eight discreet or 1920s-inspired bars and lounges around Boston.
