Prohibition may be in the past, but the decadent and secretive quintessence of the ‘20’s is thriving in downtown Boston. Quaintly situated in Beacon Hill, barely a stone’s throw from the State House, is Carrie Nation. Where ragtime and jazz pipe through the speakers into three classy but comfortable dining spaces as distinct in décor as they are in their names. Learn about Carrie Nation’s outrageous efforts to rid America of liquor while indulging yourself, quite smugly, in a selection of era inspired concoctions.
At Carrie Nation Restaurant and Cocktail Club, you can choose from a sprawling selection of food menus, created by Executive Chef Steven Morlino, crafted to complement the spirit of the atmosphere and a meticulously poured cocktail. And though the main dining spaces are charming and inviting, slip along the bar to a corridor just beyond, making your way to the red velvet curtain and get ready to get raided. Make sure to have a twenty spot, secret handshake or password and find yourself in Boston’s Original Speakeasy. An elegant, windowless lounge with plush leather seating, dark polished wood, billiards and a full bar, the Speakeasy makes for a relaxed and saucy scene for locals and tourists alike and worthy of the namesakes hatchet wielding notice.
