Popular speakeasy bars in Warsaw

In New York, London, Berlin and many other western cities, there is a lot of them – exclusive bars which can be entered only by insiders are a topic of numerous gossips and legends spread across the city. At the same time, only few people know their exact location and how to access them, which makes them even more interesting. Fashion for speakeasy bars, luxurious places hidden from pedestrians, has also reached Warsaw!

The origins of speakeasy bars date back to 1920’s and the 14 years of the prohibition in the USA. Back then, alcohol could be bought and drunk in illegal, unofficial bars about which customers heard through the grapevine. Apart from rich citizens, hardly anybody could access them, which was decisive for the exclusive atmosphere of those clubs. The times of the prohibition were also the beginning of the art of bartending – in order to hide the taste of alcohol, employees of secret bars started preparing sophisticated drinks and cocktails.

Although hardly anybody remembers the prohibition and high quality spirits can be bought almost everywhere, the tradition of speakeasy bars has survived – mainly thanks to a mysterious atmosphere and an exclusive character which attract all those people who enjoy partying with style, value good company, the best, unusual cocktails as well as discretion provided by such places. There is a couple of speakeasy bars in Warsaw and despite the fact that they are not advertised, there is a lot of people interested in partying with insiders.
