If you’re looking for a venue in New York to have your next event, private party, or wedding, chances are you’re looking for something with character. While spaces in Manhattan can get pricey, The Bridges Public House speakeasy bar in Brooklyn offers competitive pricing to help you make your special event even more memorable.

The Bridges may call itself a sports bar today, but it has gone through transformations through the centuries that still leave remnants within its walls. The space has gone from being a sugar refinery to a coffee warehouse, to a bar reminiscent of the speakeasies of years gone by.

speakeasySpeakeasy bars were born during the era of Prohibition in the 1920s when drinking alcohol was made illegal. These bars popped up under the radar, often by gangs who could supply the alcohol, and required a password to enter. To further protect themselves from the law, the owners of speakeasy bars served as the bouncers and hid their establishments in basements and attics or disguised them as soda shops and cafes.

The speakeasy bars of yesteryear were not unlike the clubs of today. They often had live jazz music, performances, and flapper girls dancing. It was a place for gathering to blow off some steam and also a place to go to be entertained.

A speakeasy bar, such as The Bridges, is the perfect place to have your next private event as it can offer your guests more than just sophisticated cocktails and tasty craft beer. Bring them back through history in an underground space with stone walls, cast iron columns, and a 24-foot elevated ceiling. Call The Bridges today at (347) 987-4504 to get a quote on renting the space for your next event, or check out the menu and gallery online.
