Hidden entrances, dark places, low volume music, smoke, women, crime and obviously alcohol. In the days of Prohibition (1920-1933), these were the explosive ingredients of the American speakeasies: clubs that served alcohol illegally, when the government prohibited even its production and transport. They were frequented by gangster such as Al Capone and Lucky Luciano and have become the symbol of an epoch immortalized by many movies. The "new" speakeasies are inspired by the typical unmistakable atmosphere of the beginning of the 20th century, when it was necessary to speak under your breath not to arise the suspects of the law. These trendy bars have often been conceived by keen bartenders, who rediscovered the tastes of the mixed drinking of the '20s and '30s. Specially-made furniture, refined cocktails, entrance by invitation only, themed dress code, locations without address, vintage atmosphere... nowadays the speakeasy is living a second life, a renaissance that is, first of all, a matter of taste. Cocktails are now high-quality, sophisticated and above all legal, but entering these clubs we jump into the past. This book will lead you to the discovery of the most famous current speakeasies, opening you the doors of a hidden but charming world.
York is the second-most visited city in the UK, attracting millions of visitors from all across the world who are spellbound by the city's medieval churches, quaint snickelways and its plentiful pubs. In 1663 it was recorded that York had 263 licensed public houses. As the population of York increased, so did the number of licensed pubs. Seebohm Rowntree's early twentieth-century survey revealed that York had one licensed establishment for every 230 people. The pubs that have survived into the modern era each have their own individual story to tell, a tale sure to entertain and fascinate while you sit perched at the bar. This book catalogues the most intriguing capers from the city's historic pubs and will give the reader an introduction to a fascinating alehouse-based history of York.
Leicester's pubs have always been more than mere watering holes. They are where businesses were created, battle plans drawn up and where murderers once faced up to their crimes. Richard III spent his final night in Leicester at the Blue Boar in Highcross Street. Nathaniel Corah began his textile manufacturing empire, which employed thousands of Leicester people, at the Globe on Silver Street in 1815. Condemned prisoners on the way to the gallows at Red Hill were allowed a final drink at the Talbot Inn in Belgrave where there are still ghostly sightings, and at the Belper Arms in Newton Burgoland 'Five to four Fred' makes his presence felt precisely at that time. Other local taverns are frequented for specific purposes, such as those near the Leicester Royal Infirmary's Maternity Unit where fathers-to-be and new fathers steady their nerves or celebrate the arrival of their offspring. Now, in the Stoneygate suburb, there's even a Real Ale Classroom complete with blackboard and school bells where customers can be educated about beer. Leicester Pubs is a 'pub tour with culture', reflecting Leicester's history through the colourful stories of its inns and taverns.
