Speakeasy: The Raines Law Room

Ring the bell at the bottom of the stairs, announce your party, and step into another time. Hope to be seated by the fireplace in one of the velvety tufted club chairs while listening to Dinah or Billie. Or patiently wait in the vintage tiled back room and spy on the bartender, who mans a countertop filled with market fresh ingredients. Once seated, requests can be made at the silent pull of a chain. Meant for absorbing intimate conversations or lingering over a tete-a-tete. photo from
