Speakeasy in Kailua Town

Historically known for their concealment, a speakeasy was an illicit hidden establishment, typically a bar, nightclub, or saloon, that provided libations to patrons seeking a comfortable and secure atmosphere during the alcohol prohibition of the United States. Today, these bars are still hidden away in cities across the US, accessible through the same social means without fear of the law, of course.

In Oahu's Kailua Town, such a place exists that we'd like to share with our closest friends, our readers. Hidden at the back of the Kailua Town Pub and Grill is a telephone booth, but no ordinary telephone booth. Here you'd give a password (or your names of reservation) and you'll be allowed entrance to the backroom that situates a handful of parties and an extravagant bar. Thursday through Sunday your ears will be treated to a live jazz music with varying saxophones.
