San Diego Goes Back in Time to Speakeasies

By  | 

During the Prohibition era, speakeasies were created as a secret bar hide away, that sold alcohol so that people could drink, secretly and still have a fun night. Luckily for San Diego locals and visitors, this isn’t an issue anymore, but the secrecy of a speakeasy is always a fun way to spice up your night life. San Diego has a few hidden bars, or speakeasies that are just waiting for you to discover the secret passage way that will lead you to hand crafted cocktails, and a night you won’t want to miss out on.

This hidden bar, Noble Experiment, not only has a hidden location, but it also has a very vague website, adding to the overall mystery of the bar. Located at 777 G St, San Diego, CA 92101, you can find yourself being a part of a very exclusive night time scene, between the hours of 7pm through 2am. The entrance is carefully behind The Neighborhood, and it is crucial to go online to reserve seating. With a full bar always stocked, and an intimate ambiance, this is the perfect night out to explore what your city has to offer. Being a part of this atmosphere will transcend you all the way back to the 20’s and add a certain mystery to your night.
