The Different Types of Drinking Establishments

Taverns, pubs, and bars are all types of drinking establishments that fulfill the same purpose. These drinking establishments became illegal in the 1920s, allowing a new secret society of speakeasies to flourish and giving a select few a dangerous route to enjoy the treat of alcohol. We recreated this underground secret at Lucky's Lounge in the Seaport District to offer a good time with live music, great food, and drinks! 

Drinking Establishment Histories

All over Europe, drinking establishments were businesses run with the primary goal of serving alcoholic beverages that patrons could consume on the premises. Regardless of the name, some of these establishments offer live music or shows, while others offer private rooms for important town meetings. These establishments were used as meeting places for many to use throughout their day-to-day business affairs. As the country progressed, the ideology changed as bars, pubs, taverns, and beer gardens were brought to America. While their names may differ, they all continued to share a similar purpose. That was until the prohibition era, and then we see how speakeasies developed for a select few to continue to indulge in illegal activity. Would you visit a speakeasy if alcohol was still illegal?
