Global Speakeasies

Speakeasies are – obviously – nothing new but Dublin only recently starting riding on the furtive coattails of those in New York, London and Berlin.

The Liquor Room
The Liquor Room

If a modern-day speakeasy is defined by a clandestine entrance, artisanal cocktails and a strict reservations policy, often via Twitter, in Dublin there’s Vintage Cocktail Club (vintagecocktailclub.com), The Blind Pig (@BlindPigDublin), and while, not a speakeasy per se, The Liquor Rooms (@TheLiquorRooms)?in the Clarence Hotel’s basement, ticks all those vaudevillian mixology boxes. And if you like those, you’ll like? PARIS Little Red Door, all exposed brickwork, innovative cocktails and a Manhattan vibe (lrdparis.com) ?

LONDON Nightjar, for 1920s styling, vintage glassware and live jazz (barnightjar.com) –

NEW YORK PDT Shorthand for Please Don’t Tell, this is no longer a secret, but entering the bar through a vintage phone booth never fails to amuse (pdtnyc.com).
