When it comes to speakeasies, many people need help deciding what to order. During an era where prohibition existed, what kind of food did speakeasies serve? This blog post will answer all of your questions, as well as guide you through the suitable types of menu items that you should be ordering.

What Food was Served at Speakeasies During Prohibition Era?

A few of the first speakeasies offered more than just gin fizzes, whiskey smashes, martinis, and other popular cocktails of the day to help soak up the spirits and boost sales. Assorted bite-sized canapés were handed out to their inebriated customers instead of heavy meals as they mingled around the dens' noisy, crowded rooms. During this time, cocktail parties were also becoming increasingly popular at home. A growing number of finger foods have become popular due to the rise of these intimate events. Among the culinary delights served were lobster canapés, caviar rolls, crabmeat cocktails, shrimp patties, oyster toast, anchovy molds, radish roses, devilled eggs, and savory cheese balls. A variety of sweet treats were available, including powdered sugar-topped fruit cocktail cups or marshmallows.
