4 Awesome Speakeasies in Mississippi!

Prohibition may have ended almost a century ago, but speakeasy-inspired bars are still alive and well in Mississippi. You can still find these classic hangouts scattered around the state that only you (and thousands of others) know about. The good news is, there’s no password or secret knock required at these four amazing speakeasies in Mississippi. 

1. Big Mike’s Speakeasy, Gulfport, MS

Step back—way back!—into the roaring ‘20s with a festive menu, creative attire, and plenty of old classics filling the air. You’ll want to bring your dancing shoes, but even if you’re not a dancer you can still enjoy the fine details that went into creating one of the most iconic bar/restaurants in the state. And if you’re on a budget, you’ll appreciate their Great Depression specials.

2. The Apothecary at Brent’s, Jackson, MS

Reminiscent of the old-fashioned drug stores of yesteryear, you’ll be surprised to find more than a medicine counter here. Known for their creative cocktails served up in a speakeasy-style bar, patrons love the dedication the owners have put into this theme. Grab a seat at the “counter” or a retro booth for an experience unlike any other in the city.
