These Speakeasies Are The Cat’s Meow

These Speakeasies Are The Cat’s Meow

Hey, pals. At Hooch Booch we’re pretty jazzed up on the speakeasy scene. But no secrets here…We wanted to share with you some of our favorite speakeasies and cocktail lounges in our two home states. Fun fact, we’ve done photoshoots at two of the speakeasies in Denver. Can you guess which ones? 


  • Green Russel: Located under a historic building, this dark, mysterious speakeasy boasts one of the world’s largest rare whiskey collections in Denver.

  • Williams & Graham: This prohibition-inspired speakeasy sits sneakily behind a book store on a corner. You can enjoy small plates and choose from more than 60 classic handcrafted cocktails.

  • Millers & Rossi: Cocktail-lounge-meets-tiki-bar located just behind an art gallery in RiNo (Denver). Expect small bites and late-night snacks along with a unique drink menu.

  • The Cooper Lounge: Less of an underground speakeasy - in fact it’s located on the top floor of Union Station. But, it’s quite the swanky lounge for cocktails, wine, and upscale appetizers. Not to mention the views. Stop by Terminal Bar downstairs before or after for another drink!

  • Room for Milly: A modern cocktail bar with comfy seating options and a colorful drink menu. We recommend trying the Playa Del Ray if you fancy Mezcal.

  • License No. 1: Located under Hotel Boulderado, this speakeasy is a tribute to the charm of the early 20th century. Eat, drink and be merry while enjoying a comedy show every Thursday.

Minneapolis / St. Paul

  • Young Joni - Back Bar: When the light is on in the alley, it’s open. Sneak a spot on weekend nights only (Thurs-Sat) for cocktails accompanied by unique pizzas.

  • Prohibition Bar: Sitting on the 27th floor of the W Hotel in the Foshay Tower (one of the most well-known landmarks in Minneapolis), it’s one of the highest speakeasies you’ll come across.

  • Volstead’s Emporium: Hidden in Uptown Minneapolis with finely crafted libations, fare and music. They offer 2 rooms fitting up to 25 people for events as well.

  • Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge: Another cocktail-lounge-meets-tiki-bar, overlooking the Mississippi River. If you didn’t try the Siren’s Call, did you even go to Psycho Suzi’s?

  • Emerald Lounge: A '“hidden gem” if you will…Ha ha. Cool, cozy vibes at this St. Paul cocktail lounge boasting shareables, full entrees, desserts, cocktails, wine and beer. A top notch place for a photo opp.
