Speakeasy: An illicit bar selling bootleg liquor during the 1920's/early 1930's period of prohibition in the United States. The term comes from a patron's manner of ordering alcohol without raising suspicion. Bartenders would tell patrons to be quiet and "speak easy".
Thaxton Speakeasy is a modern day, downtown, underground lounge. Located in the lower level of the historic Thaxton Building, Speakeasy is also Saint Louis' only password protected nightspot. The Art Deco elegance and seriously swanky vibe, are sure to keep you coming back for more. You might say we are the cat's meow, bee's knees, caterpillar's kimono, eel's hips…you get the point Jack?
