Seriously, I travel the country and use yelp to find cigar joints wherever I go. Prohibition is my favorite without question. The reviews about ventilation being poor is crap, there's a vent every 5 feet. The staff is chatty and friendly. If you think they're rude you should consider this isn't a taco Mac. If you want to pound beers a cigar bar isn't where ya should go. The drinks are hands down the best and the cigars selection is the best. Want a great place to unwind with your pals and burn a great stick this is it.
I had been hearing about this spot for a while now and finally had the pleasure of entering. The idea of walking into a phone booth dialing a phone number on an old rotary phone which it took me a minute to figure out was so cool. We stood there for like 3 minutes and then someone opened up which seemed like a hidden door inside the phone booth. The experience made me truly feel like I had come upon some big secret. The ambiance was sexy and cool with dim lighting. This cute cigar lounge was almost filled to capacity when we arrived on a Saturday at around 930pm. I'm not a cigar smoker but I have been to cigar bars before and sometimes the smoke can be a little offensive if the place does not have adequate ventilation. I was very comfortable with the breathing air at Prohibition. There were several groups of people who came inside sat down and 1 or 2 people in their party after 15 minutes or so couldn't take the smoke. The drinks were superior and I ordered several lemon drop martinis because of it. I attemped to order food but they were out of whatever i wanted and had little selection to choose from. Overall, I give this spot 2 thumbs up.
Swanky, swankier, swankiest. Still swanky after all these years. But now, swankier for those who buy an annual membership. For $500 or so a year, you get in with a finger scan. Yep, forget the code, you skip any line and your digits get you right on in. Cool is the rule at E Andrew's swankiest spot.
We came here after our anniversary dinner and it was very fun and classy. You have to get the password from someone else to get in, and then enter through the phone booth. That was my favorite part! The whisky drink I had was really tasty and strong. It was a bit crowded and a tad bit smokey near the back. But otherwise, it was a fun vibe with a unique speakeasy experience.
It's super small, but it has a really cool feel. The waitress was super friendly. The menu was so extensive that I was overwhelmed, but she asked my preferences and suggested something for me. And she was nice enough to make sure that I liked it afterward. And boy did I like it! It was super tasty. I'd totally go back. Just so you know, though, there is a dress code. They were nice enough to let us bypass it (we were ultra casual), but I have a feeling it was a one time exception. Go to one of the surrounding bars first, grab a drink, and get the "secret code" from a bartender.
This was a fun bar. However, I thought it was a bit overhyped. I came here on a Saturday with some friends. It was really late and about an hour before closing. We used the phone booth to get in (the bouncer gave us the code) and got inside. The decorations were pretty cool, but a bit tacky and older. Also, it took a long time to get drinks. However, we got to sit a pretty cool booth and looking at the menu was pretty neat. Also, one of my friends got a drink with absinthe and it had a really cool presentation. The "speakeasy" theme was carried out really well in the menu and the drink options were pretty neat. I didn't know this before going in, but apparently Prohibition is also a cigar bar. As such, there were a lot of people smoking inside the bar. However, this didn't really bother me that much because it was decently well venilated. Overall, it was fun, but not amazing. I would go back, but it's not somewhere I would go all the time.
The variance of reviews of Prohibition is quite intriguing. It is not a place for everyone and they make sure you know it. This is either an advantage (if you're their kind of people) or a drawback (if you're not). For me, Prohibition is a step back into a wonderful era that is all but lost and I love it. So if you'd like to drink and smoke at Prohibition, please take note. 1. Dress nice. You don't need a jacket but you should tuck your shirt in and avoid sneakers. Jeans are OK but t-shirts, basketball shorts, and tank tops are not. 2. Don't gawk. People sometimes come here to be discrete. Cell phone cameras going off don't make anyone happy. All my attached photos were taken with no flash. Be a gentleman / gentlewoman and all will be well. If you don't know what that means, this is probably not the place for you. 3. Be cool. This isn't Burger King. Drinks come at the speed of quality, emphasis is on the experience. Enjoy it and don't be impatient if they're busy. If you're excessively young, just act like your parents and you'll get along OK if you don't talk too much. If this is your cup of tea, then you will absolutely love Prohibition. Pro tip, if you don't have a "number" for the phone booth, ask around. The bartender next door might be able to help. :-) Aside from "the rules", the cocktail menu is off the charts great, feel free to adventure with reckless abandon. The cigar menu is impressive and they'll have something for everyone. Prohibition is a gem folks, I now have something to envy in Atlanta locals.
The host and the bartenders here are really welcoming and fun to talk to. From the last time I went, it seems much less stuffy (but I've really only been a couple times, so it's not a proper comparison). The cocktails are pricey but tasty and made with care, and they'll offer recommendations based on what you like. I don't smoke cigars so I've never really gotten to appreciate that part of the bar, but they seem to have a decent selection. Grab the code from a bartender at one of the other bars in East Andrews and dial it into the the mysterious red phone booth. Or if you're ninjas like us, just sneak in when someone leaves (sorry Mateo!)
If actual prohibition was in effect and you had to go to speakeasies, and they were all as good as Prohibition in Buckhead, I'd be content with that. My experience was unbelievable. Heading downstairs behind all the bars on the block, I had my eyes peeled for the bright red phone booth. Went in, entered the special phone number and was in within seconds. Originally I had planned to come Friday night for a night cap, but it was getting late due to the Braves having a rain delay. I came Saturday evening and we had the place all to ourselves. We started chatting it up with our server and bartender, who were delightful. The first round of drinks were on the house and then they gave us some complimentary champagne. Our cocktails were wonderful. Just let the bartenders know what I'm a fan of and he concocted the perfect drink. After awhile I was getting a bit hungry and order up some sushi from Czar Ice Bar. Got a specialty roll, that complimented my drinks real well. My time in Prohibition made it my favorite spot while in Buckhead.
This place is one of the best bars in ATL hands down! It is a cigar bar and you will leave smelling like smoke so instead of whining about it, have a cocktail! The best gin cocktail I've ever had is called "The Bramble". The picture is as shown which comes with a couple fruit garnishes. The coolest part about this place is the entrance. In order to get in the bar, you must have a secret phone number. You literally dial the phone number in their phone booth and the door magical opens! Awesome! Prohibition does have a strict dress code so please dress to impress. It's also a bit small so get there early to grab a table. Drinks are around $13 but totally worth it! With the Jazz playing in the background and the old films on TV, you really feel like you're traveling back in time! If you have a friend in from out of town, take them here! It's absolutely amazing!
If you want to feel like a BOSS this is your place to go. There is just something about this place from the phone booth entry to the ambiance that naturally makes you feel like you have upped your social status a bit. First let me talk about the entry. You have to go to the phone booth (phone number not posted) and enter it via a rotary telephone. They let it ring ring ring then finally we gained entry. I was pretty amazed. The ambiance: It was dark, busy (but not too packed), and the crowd was extremely diverse. It definitely is not your typical "Buckhead" type of establishment. It was a little more on the eclectic/hip side that night. (Friday night). We were there towards the end of the night and it was pretty smokey in there. Next time, I will try to get there a little earlier to see if that is better. The drinks: Oh hey... craft cocktails woot woot! I ordered the floradora (sp) and it was AMAZING. Probably one of the best drinks I have had since moving to Atlanta. So why 4 stars instead of 5?.. The service! I was not impressed. The waitresses would automatically go to the men around us to serve them and we would have to flag our waitress down just to get her attention and she would tell us "I'll be right back" and wouldn't come back right away. We were there 30 minutes before we were even able to order a drink. Another 30 min to get our drinks. Lastly, they ask for a credit card to hold when you order your drinks (which is fine) however when we asked for our check she brought back the receipt for me to sign. We were never given the option to pay cash or split between cards. I understand that this might be a more convenient practice to not have to run back and forth, however, it should have been specified when there is a group of people that the card handed over would be the card to be ran. Overall, I will give it another whirl!
I have lived in Atlanta for almost 12 years and I have wanted to check this place out forever! So finally one Friday night we were eating right down the road and had an hour to kill. This is a speakeasy meaning you have to have a code to enter. It's pretty cool how you have to go through the phone booth and dial the number. Some of the reviews about this place said you have to dress up which is true, but why wouldn't you it's a secret bar setup like its 1920! They have an awesome drink and cigar selection. All in all it was a cool experience that I can check off my list of cool places in Atlanta I have been. FYI if you can't handle cigar smoke this may not be your cup of tea!
Get the code.Tell your man to switch the tshirt for a collar (or put on a suit jacket). Slick on some red lipstick, long pearls and pumps and you're Prohibition ready. I love going in and seeing groups and couples dressed Gatsby style. It's all about fun and doing something a little different. Dressing up is optional but there is a gentleman's dress code. As far as once you're inside, sit at the bar if you can. Order a cigar, if you like (i.e Cohiba Red Dot, Prohibition's hand made cigar-18th Amendment, Romeo & Julieta or a Moontrance if you like sweet vanilla honey cigars like me) and have a ball. Don't get too rowdy though, it's a classy establishment that will boot you if you're actin a fool. As far as cocktails-- Get the Bramble as a shot without ice as a warm up if you're ready to drink. I'd follow with any of these- Bocci Ball, Postcard from Italy (a Tom original), or GinGin mule which comes with spicy candied ginger and mint! I like to have the bartender Tom create a cocktail for me versus sticking to the menu but if you're going to take a page from my book-come early or during the week and sit at the bar. They are crazy busy on the weekend and I think asking for something from scratch is rude unless they've got time to chat while they do it. Albro is awesome too and makes a yummy twist on a Ramos gin Fizz. Do you see the pattern now? I'm a gin girl. But don't be afraid to try the Blood & Sand or the Horses Neck which are whiskey cocktails. My first was a Brown Derby, whiskey and grapefruit! Delicious but a bit on the small side if you ask me. If you sit on a couch McKenzie will make sure you're taken care of, and knows a lot about the spirits and menu. So even if you're not at the bar, the service will be great. If you choose to come on a weekend bare in mind that they get extremely busy and drinks take a while. *****It's crazy people complain about this! They're making Craft Cocktails guys! Even the fastest bartender in the world can't make miracles happen..(Same goes for Czar Ice Bar, Stillhouse, etc.)***** So what if you need a 'secret code', there are plenty of ways to obtain it without having to kill yourself. So what if there's a dress code? I prefer that they keep it high class, most men I see in prohibition are probably in a collared shirt, pants, and closed toe shoes before they go out anyways. Just enjoy the ambiance, bring a big group and reserve the comfy leather couch by the fireplace, or come with a date and cozy up with a cigar (if that's your thing) and just relax. Every minute is worth the wait for these cocktails. Not only are they tasty and originals of the 20's era, they also contain about 2X the alcohol than most cocktails in a typical bar. Beware having 4 or 5! They are so tasty the alcohol sneaks up on you, and the walk to the exit is a little wobbly in those heels you put on. Go check it out with an attitude that's ready for a good experience! You'll love it!
The decor is fantastic: perfect lighting, polished wood, period-dressed bartenders. I did not find their cocktail menu original, but it's extensive. It appears there's no in-house kitchen, so they poach from neighboring restaurants for their menu, and they do it well. But Prohibition is about show rather than substance. It's not unlike dinner theater. A hip, exclusive place to see and be seen. I've never seen flare bartending before--I thought the fad died before my time. But it's alive and well here, if that's what you like. I would rather my drink not crash on the floor, or come out dripping wet on the second attempt, but to each their own. The service I observed for the other patrons was good, but it did not suit me personally. Getting in wasn't easy (by design, of course), and once I was in I did not feel any more welcome. I felt pressured to order another drink, or buy a cigar, or more food. Of course, this was just my impression--I personally didn't feel comfortable--but the place was booming, and people were clearly enjoying themselves (loudly). Worth visiting once because the "speakeasy" hook is rather fun. Great for spendy and trendy beautiful people. Just not worth it for homely cocktail aficionados.
[TL;DR] Cool like an old, secret speakeasy. Attentive, friendly staff. Awesome spot to get a drink. I went on a scotch tasting event so I can't really speak for how the place usually runs. It's cool though. It's not too big so the setting is intimate, dimly lit, with comfortable couches to lounge around in. There's a cigar humidor with stuff ranging from something just to try to... rolling up benjamins and setting them on fire. Anyway, it's exactly how I imagine a place to look if you're drinking whiskey which means it's epic.
Over priced, poor service. It may look cool with the fancy phone booth, but it's nothing special. Staff is rude you will leave smelling like an ash tray.
This is by far the coolest bar experience I've ever had. It started with finding the entrance, which is a red phone booth with a rotary phone inside. We had to get the secret phone number from the bartender of the bar upstairs. I struggled figuring out how to use the rotary phone but luckily my friend figured it out. Once you dial the correct number, the wall the phone is attached to pushes open into the bar. The entrance itself was enough to call this a unique experience, but the inside was just as unique. There's an extensive drink menu but they're most known for their cocktails. I got the Bramble and was tipsy after just one. We also got a cigar and a wine tasting from the very friendly bartender. I felt super fancy sitting next to the fireplace (fake) and under the glowing ceiling. I also felt like it was out of place to whip out my phone and take obnoxious snapchats (act like you belong!). We went on a Sunday night so there were only a few other people there. I think that's the best way to experience this bar. I'm not sure if it would have been as good if it were packed. On crowded nights there is also a strict dress code.
Let me preface, I've been here on at least 30 occasions, probably my fault for liking cigars and scotch. This place has been getting worse and worse, now they finally lost my business. But how bad can this place get?! It's truly astounding they are in business and I sincerely hope that does not last long. The key issues I have are around service, or lack there of, no matter if you come on a weekday or weekend, they are always consistent at making you feel like you've made a mistake walking in. Here are a couple: - Bartender Jim - one of the rudest and most disrespectful people I've met in customer facing business. How he has a job is truly astounding. Not on one occasion and not to only me, but nearly everyone except his pals. Management, if you want details, just shoot me a message, will be glad to explain. - Waitresses - truly incompetent. Is it out of line to say that when I am paying $30 for each of my drinks, I should be getting superb service? Nearly every time I've been here, from old staff to the new over the years, in order to get a drink when sitting on a sofa, you have to struggle to grab their attention. You know that familiar feeling at being at a cheap dive bar where PBRs are only a buck and you get slightly annoyed when you have to flag down a bartender for 30 minutes? Yup, this is it, except you'll be paying out of the world prices to get the same experience. Once you do, good luck, they probably either forgot your order or messed it up. I don't know where they find these girls, but they've clearly never worked in service industry. That being said, there are a couple great folks who work here at the door on weekends. Both Mateo and Bahli have always been nice and respectful. It's a shame that once they hand over their part of service to the waitresses and bartenders, the same level of service is not maintained.
This place is a secret in the same way that your wife cheating on you is a secret. Everyone knows about it but you. On a more serious note, this place is basically a way to get you to buy drinks at other establishments in the East Andrews complex while you wait to get in. Once you get in (after an hourish wait), the drinks are pretty good, but the cigar smoke from the 50 year old creepers standing in the corner is slightly obnoxious. Having been to quite a few speakeasy's in NYC, this place is a far cry from a real speakeasy and is only enjoyable on occasion.
I would never recommend anyone go here, as it's not very welcoming. Went here on a Tuesday night, walked inside, not very busy at all, then promptly told to leave because I didn't have a collared shirt. Yet by looking around - I was one of the better dressed people there, simply by sporting a v-neck, non-ripped jeans and shoes that matched my belt. I get the concept of an arbitrary dress code to help keep the riff-raff element out, but I can get into any bar in LA the way I was dressed. After a 20 min drive from downtown to be told that, no thanks. Avoid this place and its rudeness like the plague.

Facts about the 1920's KKK: Reasons for the Rebirth, Rise and Resurgence of the second Ku Klux Klan
1920's KKK Fact 13: Religion: The Protestant Religion became the centerpiece of the platform for the second Ku Klux Klan - the vast majority of its members adhered to the forms of the Protestant religion. Klansmen showed their allegiance to their faith through church attendance, speeches and writings and the recruitment of ministers as KKK members. Financial donations were collected from Klan members at churches and social events to show their commitment and further the cause.
1920's KKK Fact 14: Fundamentalism: Many Protestant Americans feared the nation was losing its traditional religious values and morals which gave rise to the Fundamentalist movement, which was firmly supported by the KKK.
1920's KKK Fact 15: WW1 Great Migration: During WW1 between 300,000 - 500,000 African Americans, attracted by job opportunities due to Industrialization and the war effort, moved from the south to the cities of the north in the 'Great Migration'. They settled in cities such as New York which saw the establishment of the ghettos in Harlem - a result of poor planning and rapid urbanization. This led to increased racism in the north allowing the KKK to gain a foothold in the northern cities.
1920's KKK Fact 16: Urbanization: The new immigrants and the African Americans who had moved during the Great Migration flocked to the industrialized cities. The effects of Urbanization led to rapid growth with lack of planning, inadequate basic facilities in squalid housing, poverty, lack of control and segregation. The poor living conditions led to riots and strikes and the KKK capitalized on the problems in the cities and attracted white, middle class Americans to their cause.
1920's KKK Fact 17: WW1: Soldiers returning home from the war needed jobs and intolerance towards African American and the 'new immigrants' grew due to high unemployment levels.
1920's KKK Fact 18: WW1: The impact of the Great War on the United States saw great political, economic and social changes. The Ku Klux Klan provided an outlet for the militant patriotism of white Americans aroused by World War I .
1920's KKK Fact 19: Unions: During the war, the number of workers in Labor Unions increased dramatically and workers were given the right to strike.
1920's KKK Fact 20: Immigration: Between 1901 - 1920 a total of 14,531,197 immigrants had arrived in the US. The majority were classified as 'New Immigrants'. The predominantly Catholic 'New Immigrants' from southern and eastern Europe were accused of bringing radical socialist and communist ideas into America and blamed for the strikes, violence and civil unrest.
1920's KKK Fact 21: Old Immigrants vs New Immigrants: The membership of the Ku Klux Klan attracted the 'Old Immigrants' from Northern or Western Europe who were predominantly Protestant. Their views on the 'New Immigrants' were influenced by the official Dillingham Commission Report that had concluded that the 'New Immigrants' from countries such as Italy, Greece, Poland and Croatia were "inferior, uneducated and posed a serious threat to American society".
1920's KKK Fact 22: Rise of Nativism: There was a rise of Nativism in America that encompassed the belief that the interests of established US citizens should be given a favored status compared to new immigrants - an ideology that supported the white supremacy views of the Ku Klux Klan.
1920's KKK Fact 23: Eugenics movement: Racism and Nativism were supported by the Eugenics Movement. Eugenics ideology claimed the superiority of the original American stock of the "Old Immigrants" and advocated the promotion of higher reproduction of people with desired traits. The pseudo-scientific ideology of Eugenics was used to justify the philosophy of the Ku Klux Klan.
1920's KKK Fact 24: Xenophobia: The rise in xenophobia (the irrational fear of foreigners or strangers) led to racism, ethnic conflict and the belief in the inherent superiority of one culture. The rise in xenophobia was used by the KKK to attract hundreds of thousands of new members.
1920's KKK Fact 25: Decline in Morals: Many Americans believed that the morals of the nation were in sharp decline that had led to the period of Prohibition. The decline in morals and family values in the nation was emphasized by the publicity machine of the KKK.
1920's KKK Fact 26: The Red Scare: The nation became engulfed in the anti-radical and anti-immigrant hysteria of the Red Scare (1918–1920) fueling fears that Communists ("Bolshies" or "Reds") and anarchists were conspiring to start a workers revolution in the America. The period of the Red Scare led to the recruitment of hundreds of thousands of new KKK members.
1920's KKK Fact 27: Strikes: 1919 saw a massive wave of strikes in America in what was called the 'Red Summer'. During 1919 there were more than 3,600 strikes, that involved over 4 million workers, protesting against high inflation levels, high unemployment and wage cuts. Americans began to associate all Socialists and Communists with being unpatriotic, which fitted in perfectly with the Ku Klux Klan platform.
1920's KKK Fact 28: Race Riots: African-American veterans exhibited greater militancy and pride as a result of serving in WW1 and younger African-Americans rejected the traditional passive approach to racism. In 1919 twenty-five race riots broke out in the cities of the United States, the most serious being the 1919 Chicago Race Riot. The Race riots played into the hands of the second Ku Klux Klan.
1920's KKK Fact 29: Acts of Terrorism: Ordinary Americans were terrified by Acts of Terrorism such as a series of mail bombs and the carnage caused by the Wall Street bombing. The government responded with the Palmer Raidsthat involved mass arrests and the deportation of immigrant radicals. Rumors and propaganda were spread during the Red Scare which were used to 'legitimize' the Ku Klux Klan political platform.
1920's KKK Fact 30: All the above reasons provide an insight into the rebirth, rise and resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s and explain why four million Americans joined the organization. The membership fell rapidly and by 1928 its membership had fallen to a few hundred thousand members.
