Speakeasys in the city or North Shore?

archiegirl0625 | Apr 23, 201406:48 PM     33

I know this discussion has been done before, sort of, because I've read the boards looking for an answer. Please forgive me if I just haven't stumbled on the right thread yet.

I'd love to have my birthday (end of June) at a speakeasy. I'm not looking for the kind of place where the cocktails are exquisitely executed and drinks cost $19 apiece-- I want a place with the cosy, secretive atmosphere of a traditional speakeasy. Good drinks and good food are necessary, of course, but I'm more interested in the atmosphere.

Ideally, the place I find would have a "joe-sent-me" type feel, complete with little or no signage, a password, art deco interiors.

I've looked at Drink, Alibi, Lucky's, Saloon, Bostonia Public House, JM Curley, Russell House Tavern, Trina's Starlite Lounge, basically every place I came across on here, on Google, at the Globe, etc., and nothing really seems to fit what I'm looking for. I know these exist (think NYC: Bathtub Gin, Apotheke, Raines!) but I haven't learned of any here.

Any suggestions would be a great help. I'm totally willing to have my friends come to Boston or Cambridge, but anything on the North Shore is great too, if any exist. Thanks!
