We love speakeasies because they broke the all the rules. Alcohol may have been the lifeblood of the speakeasy, but The Red Phone Booth celebrates a vice of a different kind. While you’ll find plenty of quality cocktails here, once you step through the secret door and enter this fine establishment, the name of the game is cigars. In their state of the art cigar counter, you’ll find not one, but two house cigars.
I just love the way speakeasies get dolled up for modern times. This place, Red Phone Booth, is drawn on the old luxuries while giving its all on the technology front. Looking around, you’ll feel more like you’re in a secret lounge for the worlds elite, especially if you get on board with their membership plan and use their biometric scanner to enter. Wooden interiors, plush leather chairs, and a roaring fire gives it a cozy feeling while being visibly, undeniably high end.
Smoking not your thing? Not a problem. The air in the smoking areas is totally replaced every four minutes, and they have chairs with triple lumbar support. Biometric scanners allow entry to all locations. Cigars might be the special twinkle in their eye, but they’re still friendly to alcohol. Take a whiskey tasting course or attend one of their talks, and you’ll feel less like you’re in a bar and more like you’re attending a meeting at a culture house –a place intent on keeping its secrets but willing to share its shared knowledge with a select few. No wonder exclusivity is such a draw!
But seriously, they like to keep their secrets around here. They don’t take reservations and they don’t give out the code to get in to just anybody. Part of the fun is getting to know someone with access. Planning a trip? Maybe you can get an in with a tasting event.
