Top six real-life speakeasy bars

26th May, 2015 by Amy Hopkins

Flûte Bar and Lounge, New York

Flûte-Bar-and-LoungeOnce known as the inconspicuous Club Intime, Flûte Bar and Lounge was born in midtown Manhattan in 1997. Hidden down a short flight of stairs, the venue used to be owned by Texas Guinan, notorious for her disregard of Prohibition legislation and “army of scantily clad showgirls”. Today, the story is somewhat different from its historic past. Emulating a French art de vivre theme combined with New York City nightlife, the establishment aims to bring a VIP Champagne setting to a more comfortable level and offers imbibers an array of speciality sparkling Champagne cocktails. Plus, visit on the last Saturday of the month and be transported back to the roaring 20s with live jazz-filled evening.
