Sshhhhhh… Bangalore has a new speakeasy in town, and it’s time to rejoice in joy ( but secretly ofcourse). Speakeasies are secret bars that were started in the USA during the Prohibition era when the sale and consumption of liquor were illegal. Disguised as neighbourhood cafes, soda shops, the basements of these establishments were used as secret bars. As customers were told to ‘speak easy’ ( quietly), police officers often found it hard to locate these secret underground bars. Speakeasies are quite the rage today. It’s mysterious, adventurous and reminds of you the times gone by. Bangalore is home to a new speakeasy called 10 in Ashok Nagar. What’s in store here? Read on to know more.

Bangalore’s most extravagant and alluring speakeasy, 10, has an aura of mystery. How mysterious is it? Well, for starters, the exact location remains a secret. All we can tell you is that you must visit The Paan Studio in Ashok Nagar.
