Prohibition - Speakeasy in Buckhead — Photo courtesy of Prohibtion
Prohibition is the 1920s speakeasy that opened up several years ago in Buckhead. Located in the East Andrews district, Prohibition can only be accessed by dialing a secret number from a phone booth located outside the bar. Make sure you have the code before trying to enter. When answered, the wall of the booth opens up and guests are seemingly transported back in time to a long ago era of fancy cocktails and a speakeasy atmosphere.
The space isn’t large. There are several comfy couches guest can choose to linger on or belly up to the bar and choose a unique cocktail from the cocktail menu or let the expert bartender fix you something special based on your preference. Be careful – those are some potent cocktails. Some of the popular cocktails from the Prohibition era are the Horse’s Neck, Aviator and a Sazerac.
If cigars are your thing, you’ll find an incredible selection here. If you are hungry, the food here doesn’t disappoint. They are mostly tapas as they share part of the menu with the tapas restaurant next door, Cellar 56. Dress to impress as the dress code is strictly enforced. Choice spot to hit up for drinks before a night on the town or a low key weekday evening.
