Origin of the Speakeasy
The term speakeasy dates back to the 1920s during the Prohibition Era. During this time, any sale of alcohol was strictly prohibited. Despite the legality, speakeasies in the 1920s were numerous and heavily attended. Speakeasies are also referred to as “blind tiger” or “blind pig.” These names originated from club operators that would charge customers to see an animal then offer “complimentary” alcoholic beverages to bypass the law.
Even though these venues were often raided by police, they remained a central aspect of American culture. Initially, speakeasies did not include entertainment, but as they popularized, entertainment became a focal point of the establishment. For the first time in history, women danced freely with dresses that showed their ankles. The time signified freedom and the loosening of morality.
