The Study

Back in the days of Prohibition, businessmen and debutantes stood shoulder-to-shoulder with exotic dancers and hard-nosed private detectives in secret clubs called ‘Speakeasys’. These hidden bars, where alcohol was the drink of choice, were the only places to enjoy a refreshing beer or cocktail because consuming alcohol was illegal. Distillers and business owners, supplied by local rumrunners, moonshiners, and gangsters, had to create mysterious spaces with hidden entrances where patrons would need secret codes to enter. Inside, customers were greeted into a dark and fun world where everyone was your friend and alcohol flowed freely. The same world you’ll find in The Study.

To get to The Study, you will have to know the way and the secret code. Are you ready to discover the secrets of our speakeasy?

Our History

The industrialist Andrew Carnegie designed the building, as well as providing the funds necessary, for the Niles community to open their own library in 1904. For the last 119 years, this building has served different organizations, but now it is the new home for the Underground Laugh Lounge and The Study. We are thrilled to honor this historic building by bringing top-tier entertainment to the Niles community.
