At today's entrance we will discover some restaurants called Speakeasy.
What does the term Speakeasy mean? It is a word that comes from English, from the USA, and it is translated as Clandestine Tavern. The idea of this type of bar was born in "the era of prohibition" when Prohibition was introduced. Between 1930 and 1933 in the United States, speakeasies were places where alcohol was sold illegally.
The name was born from the phrase "Speak Easy Boy!" the way the bar owner warned his turbulent customers about the noise could reveal the location of the illegal activity.
Today, the term no longer refers to the underground, but to bars with an atmosphere reminiscent of those roaring - and controversial - of the 1920s.
These types of bars are the current trend, most of them are hidden and camouflaged behind places that look like something else, such as food places or barber shops, which you could not even imagine that there is a bar there. Isn't this surprising?
Here is the list of our 5 favourites next to their map.
