Hidden at the back of a restaurant behind a concealed door is a speakeasy that offers high end cocktails. The staff were more inviting than any other "secret" cocktail establishment that I have been in before. The atmosphere was eclectic and fun. And our mixologist, Andrew, was very helpful.

Yes, have a drink here. Very cool place. The texting to see if they have a seat is fun also. One of those "I know a guy who knows a guy " things.

Our waiter at dinner had mentioned that we needed to check out this speakeasy and we were so glad that we did. It was very fun trying to find the entrance behind the wall of kegs. We were very lucky to get a spot at the bar on a Thursday evening as we did not have reservations and the place... More

Unique experience, but our bartender really personalized our experience. Dealer's choice was amazing every time. I cannot even describe how impressed we were with her talent!!

We walked to Noble Experiment from dinner. I knew it was a speakeasy bar but hadn't done any research beforehand. We got to the street that Google told us to go to and didn't see the bar. So I got on Yelp and realized NE is located inside Neighborhood bar. We walked in and said we were there for NE... More

An intimate little speak easy hidden away behind another bar. Look for the door of kegs! Great cocktails and very knowledgable mixologists. Be prepared to wait for a seat if you don't have a reservation, which is not a problem, just take a seat at the adjoining Neighbourhood bar/restaurant.

Okay I guess you have to go if youre in San Diego and you have been lucky enough to get a booking, but really? Felt as though we were about to go on a Disney horror ride and were in the pre-room. Great cocktails though, not cheap.

Been here a few times and it is fun getting in thru the keg wall. However Saturday you needed a reservation or it was an hour wait with no guarantee. Decided to walk over to the Prohibition on 5th, they have live music and great drinks. Better choice. Only go here if it is not crowded and you like cocktails.

Tried booking a reservation in advance ( three weeks) at first the date wasn't open and once it opened it somehow filled up within a matter of what seemed minutes! We got in around 930, put our name and number in and had a few rounds of drinks at the adjoining bar ( very cool decor,vertical gardens and look up... More
