I’m from the midwest, Kansas City to be exact, and we know all about speakeasies. They are a part of our gangster past. Everyone loves a great gangster story, so I couldn’t help but conjure up those prohibition era images as I sat at the bar of a great little Belltown spot called Bathtub Gin & Co.
Gin is clearly the featured item, but I’m sure you can try a number of things. The bartender, I think his name was Matt, was pretty awesome. Even if you aren’t into gin, you can appreciate the sheer awesomeness that hanging out in a speakeasy brings. For one, it’s cozy and friendly. It’s also incredibly romantic. A trip the bathroom (there’s only one so accept that guys have been there) offers a touch of victorian charm. I don’t know what else to say but check it out. You will thank me!
