Baltimore needs a speakeasy
Yes, I know, Baltimore already has a spot called Speakeasy (pictured).
I'm talking about the real thing.
Speakeasies are all the rage in New York and a few other major cities.
I saw a TV show about one speakeasy in New York where you walk into a phonebooth in a hot dog shop, pick up the phone and a hostess from the speakeasy opens a secret door on the inside of the phone booth to let you in.
That. Is. Awesome. ...
You know, the 13th Floor might make a good Speakeasy. They could put a bellman by the elevator, and you'd have to tell him to buzz you up to the 13th Floor. Then, once you got up there, they could have the entrance more enclosed, with another host waiting by the elevator to let you in.
I think Mark Twain and I talked about that possibility some months ago.
Either way, I'd love to see a speakeasy in Baltimore, and I'm wondering what other bars could be converted into Speakeasies, or have rooms that could be made into speakeasies.
