Orlando Speakeasy: Your No-Nonsense Guide

Orlando Speakeasy

Looking to spend some time at the very best Orlando Speakeasy? Then you’ve landed on the right article.

Speakeasies in Orlando bring out a part of America’s history; the prohibition period (1920-1933). During this time, it was illegal to sell, import, or purchase alcoholic beverages.

It wasn’t long before Speakeasy bars began popping up all over the place. These bars were hidden from public view and continued trading alcohol.

But you don’t have to travel back to 1920 to visit one! You can still find plenty of Speakeasy bars in Orlando nowadays. 

You just have to know where to look…

Or where not to look (most are still hidden!)

In this article, we break down the best speakeasy bar in Orlando and some other great alternatives.

Visiting this elegant downtown speakeasy is like taking a trip back to the 1800s. The building itself has been standing strong since 1884. Legend has it that this building is the oldest in downtown Orlando!

You’ll find Hanson’s Shoe Repair on 27 E Pine Street, a stone’s throw away from Latitudes Rooftop Bar

But you can’t just walk inside…

You need a password to enter. This password is changed on a daily basis, so you will need to check their Twitter page to see what it is. Alternatively, you can give the team a call at (407)-476-9446.

Doesn’t get any more unique than that, right!?

Hanson’s Shoe Repair is the type of place you visit to melt the stress away. It’s not your typical bar/club scene. With that being said, you won’t find anywhere better for first dates.

If you want to get some fresh air, you can head up to the top floor. The top floor is a rooftop terrace with an equally cozy atmosphere.

Good luck locating Mathers Social Gathering. Even if you do end up in the right location, you can only enter through a secret door. The interior remains very old school, making it seem like you’ve transported to a completely different era.

There are black leather sofas, an old coca cola vending machine, chests, old paintings, and more. The bartenders are friendly, but also knowledgeable about the different drinks. You can always ask them for suggestions if you need some expert advice.

You have an excellent selection of drinks to choose from at Mathes Social Gathering. However, we recommend the Bathtub Gin. As you may have guessed, this delicious tasting cocktail is served in a small bathtub with a straw.

Where else can you find that in Orlando, huh!?

You would be leaving a good time on the table if you don’t visit The Treehouse. It’s a speakeasy that’s located on 68 E Pine Street; the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail after a stressful day at work.

And it’s not called ‘The Treehouse’ for no reason! It actually feels like you’re inside a treehouse with grass flooring, lanterns, and a dimly lit interior.

But the interior only goes so far. What really makes or breaks a speakeasy is the atmosphere. Luckily, The Treehouse also has friendly and approachable bar staff who make you feel at home.

Are you looking for a nuclear fallout-themed bar? Then this speakeasy in Orlando won’t let you down. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen, making it the perfect location to visit with your close friends.

And don’t worry – the drinks are also reasonably priced!

Vault 5421 is located at 5421 International Drive. However, you’ll still have a difficult time finding the bar. To find this hidden gem, you need to walk through Gods & Monsters; a unique comic book shop for the niche shopper.

After picking up a comic book on the way in, you’ll be impressed by the friendly bartenders and mouth-watering cocktails. 

Cocktails don’t spark your interest? No problem! There are also 100+ craft beers, wine, cider, mead, and sake bottles to choose from. If you can’t find a suitable drink in Vault 5421, then you’re out of luck!

But alcohol is not the only way to have a good time at Vault 5421. There are arcade tables and SNES emulators to make your experience even more unique.

Another excellent speakeasy in downtown Orlando is The Woods. To visit, head over to 49 N Orange Avenue. It’s located on the second floor of the Rose Building.

For the budget-conscious traveler, the best time to visit this speakeasy is Monday to Friday between 5 pm and 8 pm. These times are happy hour, meaning you get 25% off all drinks. 

If you prefer making drinks rather than drinking them, you can join The Woods cocktail class. You’ll be mixing your own delicious cocktails in no time. For more information, get in touch with The Woods at +1 407-203-1114 or use their contact form.

The Woods also offers packages for large groups. These are excellent for work and birthday parties. If you purchase one of the packages, you also get a catering service, so you can enjoy drinks and food in the same venue.

One of the newest speakeasies in Orlando is Jewel. It’s located on 6400 Carrier Drive and has a small entry fee of $10. Although entry is not free, you’ll be glad to depart with $10 once you get inside.

The low-light stylish interior is exactly what you would expect from a speakeasy. Not only can you sit back and enjoy their range of signature cocktails, but also try your luck at some gambling.

Dice, roulette, and blackjack are some of the games available at this venue.

For those traveling in large groups, I wouldn’t recommend Jewel. It’s not uncommon for large groups to get turned down at the door, even after making a reservation! Are you traveling as a large group? Then the other Speakeasies in this article are more suitable.
