'Speakeasies' return to Orlando nightlife landscape

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

The term "speakeasy" was coined in the 1920s when prohibition swept the United States, driving alcohol sales underground.  If you wanted a drink, there were secret, illegal, bars. But they were hard to find, and you had to know the password.  If you made it inside, you were asked to "speak easy" about the joint and keep the secret.

"Speakeasies" are back now, but they've changed a bit. FOX 35's Tom Johnson has your "in" to two of Orlando's coolest, secret, hot spots.
