When Red Ivy owner Jesse Boyle and partners discovered a hidden treasure of a room adjacent to Red Ivy, they had two choices: Knock down the walls and expand the bar, or keep it separate and preserve its vintage�Prohibition-era�feel. The opted for the latter, and reimagined the space�as a speakeasy with tin ceilings, mosaic floors, red velvet booths and even a vintage cash register. Enter through Red Ivy and ask to be escorted to this separate space, where the theme carries to everything from the servers' flapper get-ups to liquor bottles concealed in tomato sauce containers to signature drinks served in teacups. With jazz on the speakers and a 50-something gentleman manning the bar, the owners are definitely aiming for an entirely different vibe than Red Ivy, but considering the proximity,�whether the scene will be all that different remains to be seen.
