The UK never much went in for prohibition. Still, there’s something about hidden, luxury drinking spots that Britons simply can’t resist.

There’s a burgeoning trend for speakeasy bars in the UK, and while some might be difficult to find, these ones are worth the effort of looking!

What are speakeasy bars?

For those unfamiliar with the term, speakeasy bars are essentially the drinking equivalent of hidden restaurants. They’re bars hidden out of sight who don’t usually promote themselves. Instead, they rely on word-of-mouth and the element of surprise to lure customers in.

From the outside, speakeasy bars might not necessarily even look like bars. However, for those brave enough to enter, they can yield some serious treats.. For those who enjoy a luxury alcohol experience without the crowds, these might be the perfect drinking holes.
