Back in the days of the alcohol prohibition, there were secret speakeasies where you could indulge in outlawed intoxicating liquors; and these little hideyhole bars had a very specific style about them. This modern era Florida speakeasy captures the vintage flair of the 1920s beautifully, and you'll feel like you've traveled back in time.
The reason we started calling these places "speakeasies" is rooted in America's Prohibition; they served as a place for people to obtain their banned spirits, but you were expected to be careful about speaking of the place in public and to "speakeasy" when inside as to not alert authorities of your illegal activities. This beautiful place gives all of that vintage feel of the speakeasy rooms from the time, but without all the worry of being arrested.
Apothecary 330 ushers in a new era of appreciation for the regal vintage flair of prohibition speakeasies from head to toe. With paisley covered walls, natural wood finishes, and decor that fits the time, it evokes a calm and relaxing atmosphere to sip your spirits. Hidden within Pizza Craft in downtown Ft. Lauderdale, you'll feel like you've wandered your way back to a hidden prohibition era speakeasy while enjoying all the comforts of modern day life.

This speakeasy actually has a set of house rules like they had back in the day too - which was to minimize the chances of being caught. Even though you don't have to worry about being caught anymore, these modern-day rules say a lot about their atmosphere. They ask that you keep your mind open, dress sharply, speakeasy, remove your hat, and keep the smoking and vaping outside.
They also ask that you have patience with their bartenders who create some serious alchemic magic with liquor in their quality cocktails. You won't find Jagerbombs, Greygoose, or Fireball here - but you will find cocktails with a variety of flavor profiles, all made with high-quality liquor and love.
