Old Fashioned

I am a huge whiskey lover and this drink did not disappoint! I will be visiting again to have a few more.

Delicious classic drink that isn't offered by many cocktail bars in the area, you have the option of getting it with Cognac or Rye and both are tasty options. One of my favorite drinks and they do it justice here!

This is one of the most fun & relaxed places I've been to in a long time. The mixologists are thorough and extremely entertaining! I can't wait to go back simply for the atmosphere.

I was pleasantly surprised by this cocktail. It has a balanced blend of flavors and goes down (a little too) easy!

Place has the best drinks. Entering through the apothecary door and being hit by the smell of burnt oranges just makes a great start to an evening here.

Old Fashioned

Literally the best Old Fashioned I have ever had. It was my first time visiting, and the mixologists were extremely friendly, music was great, and the whole experience was delightful. But the Old Fashioned was really what got me excited. It was perfectly made, and I did not want my experience of enjoying it to end. They lit the orange on fire and the details of the giant ice ball made sipping it even more enjoyable. The cherries were a great garnish and as they had great texture which is not common to find in an Old Fashioned. My friends thoroughly enjoyed their drinks as well and we all had a great time together. I cannot wait to take more friends and family here and try some for themselves. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the Akron area to swing on by and try one of these breathtaking Old Fashions.

Down the Rabbitt Hole

This is my girlfriend's favorite drink. She tells everyone about it and we've come back to the Speakeasy just so she can get her fix! Awesome spot with a cool vibe and skilled bartenders. Great energy and always a stop when friends are in town!

Down the Rabbitt Hope was so good. I love cucumber cocktails, and this one is top notch. Can't wait to go back and have another.

Down the Rabbitt Hole

This drink is so refreshing and ridiculously delicious! Very pretty presentation in a martini glass lined with strips of cucumber so they drape like greenery. Probably my favorite cocktail.

I've heard so much about this drink and was anxious to try it. It was definitely as good as advertised. Very pleased with the happy hour specials as well.

Bryan, the bartender, is amazing! All of the bartenders (AKA mixologist) are awesome! They are the reason we come back every time. Tell them your favorite ingredients and they will make something special for you. As close to Las Vegas entertainment in Akron, OH as you will get. Ask for the almond Manhattan, it is the best!

Mixology 101

This place is a must if you are in or near Akron! Coolest entryway and cozy, cool vibe once inside! The bartender Shawn was so attentive and friendly! I will definitely be back!

Dave strikes me as a master of mixology. I'm a frequent traveler, and a former high end bartender. Dave knows his trade. 10/10. Will come back.

This is our go to place to kick off a night out in Akron. The vibes here are just so cool! The drinks take time to prepare, so be patient - it's worth it when they come. Phenomenal! Everything we've had here is excellent, but my go to is Slow Burn and Sand. The drink is excellent, but the show that comes with it is even better. Ask the bartenders for the party trick and tip accordingly for a bit of show with your order of that cocktail.

Gin Fizz

The drinks are fantastic. Superb bartending, but the atmosphere is one of a kind. Leaving a modern hotel lobby and stepping back in time to a speakeasy through a secret doorway! Awesome.
