The Absinthe Speakeasy Bar is a one-of-a-kind creation bringing steampunk, prohibition cocktails, games, and good people together for unforgettable events and experiences.
We “speak easy” primarily on weekends and are open to the public for walk ins when the Red LIGHT and OPEN sign are on. Do YOU know the password? (HINT it is highlighted below )
Friday bar opens 5-9:30pm
The Speakeasy is available for private events most weekdays!
*Because the Battery Park Building is a residential apartment we respect their quiet hour policy and tend to close the bar once our final booked events for the night have begun so last call can at 9:30pm on weekends.
HISTORY of ABSINTHE
The early 2000s saw the repeal of absinthe bans around the world, just a century after the bans were put in place, and a little over two centuries after the modern recipe was popularized. In 2005, Switzerland repealed its ban, once again making absinthe legal in its country of origin, and as of 2007, at least two brands of absinthe were being legally bought and sold in the United States.
