Formerly located in a tiny slip of a joint, this prohibition speakeasy–themed place moved to a premiere location directly across the street from the Mob Museum in Downtown Las Vegas. The new space is bigger, fancier, and brighter thanks to large windows and a lighter design scheme, but still manages to retain its charm. The specialty cocktails have 1930s-era style and names, including a favorite with vermouth, rum, strawberry, lemon, and sparkling wine called the Volstead Act (which, for the history challenged, is the name of the law that created prohibition). A small menu of Italian bites and nibbles, including a signature spaghetti and meatball appetizer, will help soak up the booze, and frequent entertainment (including dueling pianos) keeps things lively. The bar is open Sunday through Thursday from 4pm until midnight and Friday and Saturday from 4pm until 2am.
