Good views from the rooftop patio, although feels a lot more closed in than it used to. Service was also pretty good, but the olives that came with the martini's were the worst olives I have ever tasted. This experience literally left a bad taste in my mouth.

Good venue but don’t go bowling and they unfairly charge you $5 for entry. The place was pretty much empty when we walked in and never got busy so bit surprising that they charged for entry. We were told that the bowling lane was old when we paid to bowl for 30 mins but we weren’t expecting it to be... More

We were in the back room on the lower level and it was really nice. Room was a nice size and the bar was set up in a nice area. Room to dance and just have fun. Will definitely irritated visit again. Didn't get to see the bowling alley that's above. Heard it's nice though.

There are multiple places to hang here, in the downstairs bar, the back bar, the upstairs bar/bowling/darts/etc and the roof.

Went for music and cocktails. Very weak drink for $8. If you go, order a beer. On a Friday night, it was dead... Felt bad for the singer... Only about 6 people on bar at 9 pm.

Great music, worst pour on the planet. The drinks we ordered MAY have been 5% alcohol. I know they have to make money but come on! One drink and we left.

Downtown location. Great for rooftop drinks, snacks. Friendly staff. Three levels, can hide away with your group or be in the action on floor one. Great place for grown ups.

What a fabulous venue for our attendees! They loved the variety of entertainment and different floors of the Speakeasy. From the first level with a two piece jazz group and apps to the back room with pool, bar, and gentleman's leather couches, head to the second floor for 20's style bowling and shuffle board finishing up on the roof top...
