Bar Review: Prohibition in Atlanta

Bar Review: Prohibition in Atlanta


Over the holidays, I was passing through Atlanta and had the opportunity to visit Prohibition, a craft cocktail speakeasy in the Buckhead district. Although I get to Atlanta every year or so, I had no current knowledge of the cocktail scene there and had never heard of Prohibition until about four hours before I went. The tale of how I found it and got in is worth telling by way of introduction.
If you don’t know what a Modern Speakeasy is, it is a bar that has some sort of hidden and possibly restricted entrance point. They aim to evoke the secret bars of the Prohibition Era, where guys like Spencer Tracy had to give the doorman the password through the little brass grill in the heavily fortified door. The original speakeasies were set up to avoid detection by police and as a last resort, delay their entrance. Today’s speakeasies are set up to evoke a feeling of subterfuge and safely scandalous behavior, while sometimes keeping out the riff-raff.

“Riff-raff?”
So how’d you get in, Doug?

Twitter, despite being the worst time-suck in the universe, does have its uses. At two in the afternoon, I tweeted that I needed a good place to slake my thirst in Atlanta. Several tweeps responded in minutes with suggestions. Having not had a chance to try a speakeasy before (I missed out on Modern Speakeasy granddaddy, PDT during my last New York visit), I chose Prohibition. A few more tweets and DMs, and I had what I needed to get in.
Prohibition speakeasy bar in Atlanta
I’ll get to how to get in below. When you enter Prohibition, you find an intimate, well-appointed room, with a dark wood bar and a variety of seating about the room. While the barback is fairly vintage in design, most of the decor and furniture is more in line with a modern high-end steakhouse than a 1920’s private club. Since it was a Wednesday, there was a seat down at the end of the bar where I could slide in, but there was a good level of business throughout my stay.

I’ll take a moment here to mention that Prohibition is a cigar bar. If you are virulently against tobacco smoke, you won’t like it, so don’t go. More to the point, don’t go and then bitch about it, as a bunch of idiots apparently have done on Yelp!. I don’t smoke myself, though I love the smell of a good cigar. But regardless, the smokiness here is not oppressive, merely pleasantly ambient.

When I slid into a seat, bartender Tom McGuire approached and offered me the menu. Prohibition lists its cocktails as “prescriptions”, sorting them by base spirit. The offerings are a nice mix of mostly classics, some twists, and a few I had not heard of. The bar is not one of those craft joints which is stocked with every bottle you can imagine, but they had pretty much whatever you needed. It’s a place to explore recipes, not brands.
Likewise, Prohibition does not fetishise ice. They work with a giant chunk of clear ice (and a pick) for drinks on the rocks, while using standard, good machine ice for chilling. Frankly, as a customer, I’m just fine with saving a bit on my cocktail in return for giving up the privilege of having it shaken with a beautiful chunk of ice I can’t see in the tin, that will only be thrown out before I’m served. That said, the huge, irregular chunk of clear ice in my Rum Old-Fashioned was beautiful.

Tom was a super bartender, who, in addition to his prodigious mixing skills, had the most important characteristic in a good bartender for me: He likes to talk drinks. If I had any trouble at all with him, it was because I like a good argument. And it was hard from me to get him to disagree with me about much of anything. Either he’s too agreeable, or his thoughts on cocktails across the board are the same as mine… and that just can’t be good for him!
The one area he disagreed with me was this: I didn’t believe he could make me a really good Ramos Gin Fizz nearly as fast as he said he could. Not only was he right, but he taught me the trick of doing it, and it blew my mind. Tom’s method is to assemble the main ingredients in the shaker without ice. I always dry shake mine as well, but he took the spring from a disassembled hawthorne strainer and added it to the shaker. This acts as a giant whisk and you can get an incredible foam in no time at all. He taught me an additional trick with the soda siphon, but you can go see him to find out about it.

So, how do you get in to Prohibition?

You make a phone call.

Prohibition is located in a mixed retail and restaurant development. In the back of the lower courtyard is the door to what appears to be a defunct antique shop. Beside the door is a large red Tardis phone booth. You simply enter the booth, dial the number on the old fashioned rotary dial phone, and a secret door in the back wall of the phone booth opens up. (I think this is an additional barrier to entry. If you are too young to know what the hell this whole “rotary dial” thingy is, you are too young for this bar.)

So what’s the number?

It’s a secret.

Come on, you can tell me!

No, they’d really prefer that people who know not go putting it on the internet and stuff. That would kind of defeat the purpose.

This post (and you) are worthless….

Seriously, if you are in Atlanta and are the kind of person who would enjoy Prohibition, you can likely find the number from someone you know. If you can’t, or live out of Atlanta and would like to visit Prohibition when in town, email me. Chances are, if you read this blog and actually take the effort to write me for the number, you are the kind of folks that they’d welcome in, so I’ll probably give you the number.

UPDATE: People keep putting their requests for Prohibition’s number here in the comments. I may not see these all the time. Here’s the best way to get my attention: Follow me on Twitter, and tweet an indirect request for the number. I’ll follow back and DM you the latest number that I’ve got. Or you can email me directly, but don’t ask for the number in the comments. Instead come back and give me your thoughts on Prohibition in the comments!

I highly recommend that you try out Prohibition should you get the chance. You’ll enjoy yourself. Just don’t show up thinking you can get in without the number. Twice during the time I was there, someone tried to bang on the door in hopes of this. Everyone within just looked at each other, laughed, and returned to their drinks.

    I have not heard of Prohibition either but this sounds awesome. My friend Josh who is a mixologist in Louisville taught me the hawthorne spiral trick a few years ago…..very cool and definitely shaves off some time. I much prefer to just shake until my heart rate is super high. 🙂 Thanks for the great review Doug !

    I have been to Prohibition many times and have never had a bad experiance. The services is always great and if you smoke cigars, you must get one from the server. There is nothing better that to have an attractive waitress clip and light you cigar for you. It feels very elegant. The whole experiance is elegant and a big throw back.

    Lots of fun.

Might I trouble you for the number, or a good clue on how to find it? I can be reached at: Wilderbeast52 [at] gmail.

    Great writeup, Doug. I was really impressed with this concept when I visited some friends in Cleveland last year and they took us to the Velvet Tango Room (www.velvettangoroom.com). Now I have some friends coming to visit me in Atlanta next weekend and I’d like to class up their trip with a night at Prohibition. Is there any way you could send me the number? Thank you!

    If you are ever in Chicago, you need to check out The Violet Hour in Wicker Park. I was just in Chicago and fell in love with this concept of a modern day speakeasy and was curious if my new city I just moved into had one. Thanks for writing this up! I would love the number needed to get in if you were still up to emailing it out. Thanks!

    Hi Doug! Been online for a few days trying to find the code…I used to go to Prohibition when it opened a few years back, then it was easy to find the number online but I find it is much more difficult now! My buddies and I wanted to go this friday night, my final boys night out before my wife gives birth! If you get this in time and have a connection to the code I would surely appreciate it – love that bar. Thanks.

    Doug,

    I read your article, and it instantly reminded me of another piece of literature I consumed several years ago concerning a speakeasy type place in New York City. I believe you entered this establishment through a telephone booth as well. If I remember correctly, it was in a hot dog restaurant. Anyways, I will be in Atlanta October 7th & 8th to meet up with some old friends as the last of us prepares to get married. I would love to see the looks of awe and wonderment on the guys faces when we have a fine beverage in a joint like this. So, if you’ve still got the code please forward it my way. Thanks a lot!

    I also have a few friends that are coming into town at the beginning of October for a wedding. Just gonna be a small group maybe four or so and I was looking for a unique attraction. I`ve heard of prohibition through a few friends but they don`t seem to know the code either. If we were able to gain admittance to prohibition I think that would be the icing on the cake for their visit.

    Well, I feel like a bit of a moron lol. I commented on your blog a couple weeks ago about getting the secret code to Prohibition for my last night before getting married. And you graciously provided it. We went, had a great time, and enjoyed some fine drinks. I even signed up on the email list (though I haven’t heard anything… I’m assuming they only send something out when the code changes…?). But I just realized I have apparently deleted your email with the code, and as I have yet to get an email update from them… And so I’m humbly (and a bit embarrassed lol) asking for the code again in the meantime. Thanks!

I actually have been to PDT in New York and experienced the bacon fused prescription, excellent…. Plus I’ve read all rules of the bar…. My husband proposed to me there so I will always cherish that memory.
    There’s a cool place called angel share which is hidden in a Japanese restaurant and little branch these are also in New York….

    I just read your review about Prohibition, and it sounds like a great place to try. A few friends and I are planning to go there Friday night for a cigar and drinks. However, I haven’t had much luck getting the number to get in. I have an old number, but not sure it still works. Do you have access to the current number?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    I am a student going into my senior year of college and have yet to successfully experience what Atlanta has to offer. Prohibition sounds like its right up my alley. I would definitely like to know. What is necessary to check it out.

  82. Doug,

    I read your piece on the bar prohibition and was interested in going with my wife. We recently moved from MI and always look for new and “off the beatin path” establishments such as this. Can you possibly provide the code for entry. I assumed it the code would be 1920 when prohibition began but that is simply my guess.

    look forward to hearing from you.

    Doug,
    Read your review from a way back, and I’m totally intrigued. Nice write-up. I am from Boston, but I travel a fair amount, and I’m constantly in search of SpeakEasys. My latest foray was one in Memphis, named after the Governor of Tennessee who outlawed booze. I loved the irony.

    Do you know the current # to call to get into Prohibition in Atlanta? I’m hopping on a flight from Boston to Atlanta later this afternoon.

    Prohibition sounds like a great place for a special night out. I am taking my wife and some friends out to Capital Grill for their “we’re getting way too old” birthday celebration and would like to end the evening with a cigar and some coktails.

    We live in Atlanta and would appreciate getting the code from you for entry into Prohibition.

    Thanks in adnavce!

    I stumbled upon this place last night night after bar hoping around the area on East Andrews, never heard about it till my date and I were in it’s midst. Luckily, she already had the code to get in and had all of this in mind for the night prior. She really is a subtly precocious girl, well either that or I am just not privy to these things at 22 as she is.

    There was a line of people trying to get in, all of which were simply trying to discern the code somehow, troubling for us… We returned when the line had died down and got in without issue.

    The atmosphere was mesmerizing to say the lease, again a lot of this being new to me. Anyone else new to this speakeasy should read the rules at the beginning of the menu, as I had done. It is quite amusing as I could imagine the rules breakers, the circumstances, and the hilarity that would ensue. A stand out rule my date noted to me was, “4. No crying or yawning at the bar. We are neither your mother nor your bed,” and all 12 of them were just as humorous.

    It took 30 minutes or so to get our drinks, but with our amazing waiter, the ambience, and our own personal engagement, this was not the least bit an issue. And the drinks did not dissapoint. Now, I would be lying if I said I remembered what we had to drink or even the cigar for that matter. Her’s had egg white in it, and mine was “old fashioned” by recomendation of the waiter.

    One thing I would like to pass on to everyone, if you do get the chance to go, make sure you write your email on their table by the entrance/bathroom as to get updates/codes for your next visit. -A-

    Hey,

    I have been trying to take my grandmother to this place for a while. She was born in 1945 so even though its a little before for time, nevertheless I know she would love the nostalgia. I have been looking for a way to access the code for about 8 months. Can you help?

    LaRae,

    I have lived in Atlanta for almost 3 years now and have always wanted to go to this bar. I have tried looking on prohibitions facebook page, finding the code in reviews and have searched several sites for this code. After reading your blog this just makes me want to visit more. ( This could be a rumor, but, I have heard that there is a secret code as well that you are suppose to give through the phone?) Is there any way that I could get the code for this absolutely fascinating bar? I would more than love to go to this “speakeasy” atmosphere.
