The Vault @ Milroy's of Soho: Cocktail bar hidden behind a whisky shop bookcase on Greek Street - a great speakeasy-style date spot | Recommended by HYHOI.com | Have You Heard Of It? tried & tasted bar & restaurant recommendations
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.
As if Gilt Bar weren’t gorgeous enough, there’s an even more intimate speakeasy called the Library hidden below it. Red velvet tufted banquettes, antique leather-bound tomes, and exposed brick create a romantic ambience in this dimly lit subterranean bar. In addition to specialty cocktails, the Library serves the same menu as Gilt Bar upstairs. 230 West Kinzie Street; giltbarchicago.com
