December 5, 2018 is the 85th anniversary of Prohibition being repealed. Why not mark the occasion this month by hitting one of New Jersey’s modern day speakeasies, some that originated in the 20s.
Those establishments claimed to sell only the soft stuff but actually peddled booze. A whispered code at the door was required to gain admission into speakeasies, which had unmarked, sometimes secret entrances. Thankfully, no one will be arrested for frequenting one of these fun spots (though many still have secret doors). They’re especially cozy places to enjoy a cocktail on a chilly winter’s evening.
