Speakeasies, Secret Bars & The Mirror in DC
Often referred to as speaks, secret bars emerged in the 1920s after the government ban on all alcohol known as prohibition. There were many unintended consequences from this overreach such as the rise of organized crime; and the rise of speakeasies.
After years of social inequality, speakeasies were a place where people came together to defy the government by having fun, drinking, dancing and breaking the rules!
Today, the Mirror is recreating the fun of finding a secret bar and going through a secret passage to find a great place where you can escape the craziness of everyday life. And what better place than 3 blocks from the White House where it all started almost 100 years ago.
Hope to see you soon, if you can find us.
