Prohibition, a speakeasy-inspired lounge, at 56 East Andrews Drive in Andrews Square, opens tonight. There are no signs, so you’ll have to look for the antique London phone box. While it is not a members-only club, guests can only enter by securing a secret number and dialing it into the phone inside the box. If you dial the right number, you’re give directions to the secret entrance. No, we don’t have the number.

Once inside, you’ll be able to choose drinks from big, leather-bound books.”We like to call our drinks prescriptions carefully compounded as our mixologists studied hundreds of lost cocktails, techniques, and the true art of an old style classic bartending that you just can’t find anywhere else in the South, ” says Master Mixologist Steve De Haan. “Using 300 pound blocks of hand chipped ice, only fresh squeezed juices, garnishes cut to order and the finest liquors available, our upscale, craft cocktails are without compare for quality and rarity of ingredients.”

The interior design keeps with the overall theme. With sconces from the 20s, the lighting is warm and subdued. The honey-onyx bar top and hand-painted ceiling complement the trimmed out oak paneling throughout the establishment. Guests will be able to cozy up in rich leather sofas by the fireplace and taste from the a special menu complete with desserts. Patrons can also enjoy a cigar from the house humidor with over 30 of the finest and rarest cigars found anywhere, such as OpusX, Padron 80th Anniversary and Davidoff.

Prohibition’s hours of operation are from 5 pm – 2 am on Monday – Saturday. For more information visit www.prohibitionatl.com.
