20 Best Hidden Speakeasy Bars in Los Angeles

The prohibition era of the 1920s was known for its prolific speakeasy bars that opened in response to the nationwide ban on alcohol. The iconic style of hidden-away lounges with secret passwords, unmarked signage and disguised entrances didn’t disappear with prohibition’s repeal, and made a lively comeback in Los Angeles over the past decade. Duck into any of these speakeasy-style bars to sip libations in a uniquely mysterious space.
