Prohibition Liquor Lounge is a hidden ‘secret’ place by Dillingers 1903 themed as a speakeasy bar located on the 3rd floor of Greenbelt 3. The entrance and exits are seamless, with no evidence of its existence, so if you don’t know about this place, there is absolutely no way of just stumbling in and discovering it. Hint: You enter the place through a ‘disguised door’ . *coughs fire* *coughs exit* 🙂
The space is beautiful, subterranean, and cozy in an almost conspiratorial way. Initially we were stationed near the bar, and about half an hour in, we were seated at a booth. Though I love the bar area, the al-fresco (terrace) dining experience was so much more spectacular! The vibe was classy and romantic, perfect for a fun ladies night out or a date! I loved how the music wasn’t that loud, perfect for a conversation.
Finally, THE DRINKS. After telling the bartender that I love citrus(y) and sweet drinks with a kick, she recommended the ‘Lemon Drop’ which ended up being one of the most delicious drinks I’ve had in a long time. My friend, who was very indecisive, got a custom made cocktail. The bartenders were very attentive and as long as you tell them what flavours you like, they will get you the best drink for you.
The only downfall I found in this place was the fact that they only have drinks and snacks on small plates. My friend and I came during dinner, so after a few drinks, we were both starving. They have a fancy cheese platter you can order, but when you’re hungry, cheese just won’t cut it. It would have been nice to be able to order ‘real food’.
The staff are superb, consulate professionals who can guide you and seem to appear just when you need them. I also appreciate that they give you water right off the bat, and continually refill it, so you can pace yourself and cleanse your palate.
All in all, I’m extremely impressed by Prohibition Liquor Lounge. It’s a place with character and substance and I’m pretty sure you will love it too.
