Relive the Prohibition Era in this incredible speakeasy!

The glamourous speakeasies are famous for their mysterious vibes and perfect ambiance. Prohibition certainly made an impression on some Seattle bars. Needle and Thread is one of those places you have to visit at least once!

Back in 1832, The Pioneer Inn and Tavern Law legalized drinking in public bars and saloons, where craft cocktails thrived during the Golden Age. In 1919 Volstead Act almost destroyed the craft of the American bartender, prohibiting the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages, that’s when speakeasies began to appear.
