Sure, prohibition is over, but if you’d still like to check out a super cool (and super sneaky) “speakeasy” all you need to do is fly on over to Shanghai. There’s a sandwich shop there called The Press, and towards the back you’ll find a totally unassuming (wink, wink) Coca-Cola vending machine—yep, it’s actually a totally hush-hush, secret entrance for “Flask,” a fun and up-scale speakeasy.

The interior features a modern design with prohibition-era design elements such as vintage sofas, 25-liter whiskey bottles and old-school copper-colored lights. The architect who designed the bar, Alberto Caiola, noted:

the fun, lighthearted feel, the bright colors and lighting [in The Press] —within a few steps, these elements segue into a mysterious space with warm, muted lighting and the murmurs of bar patrons to invite further curiosity.
