The liquor smugglers who raged during American prohibition from 1917 to 1935 were called “Bootlegger”. The advent of prohibition also saw the birth of a large number of underground bars, also called “Speakeasy”, hidden bars. The Bootleggers have played an important role in the distribution and provisioning of these secret and festive places.
Awesome. Great Cocktails customized to your whims, perfect service, live blues & swing band... worth the trip to Montreal, any time!
