The Underground at the Mob Museum takes the glamour of the mobster era of past and present with its penchant for brewing and pouring illegal liquor during Prohibition and turns it into a 2,814-square-foot speakeasy with its own distillery and VIP room in the basement of the museum. A working distillery brews the museum’s own illicit moonshine made from corn mash. Try the Moonshine Mash or Ginger Jake to taste it.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ barbershop features a speakeasy bar in the back. The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails offers a mahogany bar from Kentucky originally built in the 1800s and a barrel-aged whiskey selection ranging from American, Japanese, Irish, and Canadian whiskeys to bourbons and scotches. Craft beer and other sipping spirits including tequila, mezcal, and Champagne make the menu as well.

The setting is divine within the 2 million beaded crystals at The Chandelier at Cosmopolitan. The three levels offer their own experiences. Head to the second for the concoctions of Mariena Mercer, the chef mixologist there. Signature cocktails include the Whiskey Business, a new twist on the Old Fashioned, Finishing School made with Ciroc Red Berry vodka and strawberry rhubarb rose syrup, and We’re All Mad Here, an ode to Alice in Wonderland that starts blue but changes colors once blended.
