Thaxton Speakeasy

The Thaxton Speakeasy strives to be an out-of-the-way oasis in the middle of downtown St. Louis. Located in the basement of the epically beautiful Art Deco Thaxton Building, it requires patrons to bypass the inviting glass windows and make their way to the clandestine alley entrance - you'll need a password for a discounted cover, but it's conveniently located on their website. Take a minute to devour the visual delights in the lobby before descending to the bar below. The dance floor is in the middle of the room, and the crowd is exceedingly jovial - we've got to assume it's those cherry moonshine cocktails. Pro tip: Unless you grew up swilling the stuff, that maraschino cherry marinated in moonshine will knock you flat.
