Situated in a building near the Pacific Ocean in Venice, California, the Del Monte Speakeasy has been serving booze (legally or illegally, depending on the year) since 1915. During the Prohibition era, the bar (which is still underground) was located below a grocery store.
In the dark days of Prohibition, the fun was had at speakeasies. And while at least a billion bars now try to replicate the vibe of those underground flapper-zones, only a select few are actually worthy of the title (even if they swear they don't want it). Mainly because you can't find their door without reading this story. Here are America's best speakeasies.
