About the Study

The Study has a vibe from Prohibition times in the 1920s. Modern speakeasies are a little more sophisticated since the sale of alcohol is no longer illegal, but many owners of speakeasy-themed establishments attempt to capture the yesteryear thrill of illicit drinking by requiring passwords or secret knocks to make entry more difficult than at a run-of-the-mill bar.

Modern-day speakeasies are often harder to find as they may not maintain a website or local listing. Many won’t even have a sign on the building they're housed in, their front nothing more than a door in a brick wall. Word of mouth continues to support the business of these secretive clubs. They exude the mysterious aura of the secretive hideouts that once embodied a sense of rebellion.

The Study at the Laugh Lounge has a very low-key atmosphere with muted lighting, a large selection of books, fireplaces, rich woodwork, and unique décor from the 1920’s and 1930’s. The Study is a great hidden place to unwind and escape the outside world while you enjoy Prohibition drinks, cool jazz music, friendly bar keeps, and a traditional gaming area. Know the secret code and you can come rest easy in our speakeasy – CAPONE.
