A modern interpretation of the speakeasy experience, 86 is a throwback to the Prohibition-era establishments. When guests enter 86, they feel like they’ve glamorously stepped back in time with an alluring, dimly lit space inside downtown’s Gordon Hotel, intimately adorned in antique lighting. The attention to detail and distinctive menu contribute to a truly unique speakeasy experience that is full of mystique, enchanting patrons. This cozy gem features bold, handcrafted classic cocktails, prohibition area spirits, and era specific snacks and small plates that delight with authenticity.
(This is a 21+ ONLY establishment.)
For access to the 86 speakeasy establishment, you must obtain a password* first!
Patrons may request a password by filling out the reservations form on the 86 website or emailing directly at email@example.com. A confirmation email will be sent to confirm the visit along with the password. Visits are limited to 90 minutes.
Once you have a password*, please walk through the main lobby of the Gordon Hotel and look for a door marked “Janitor”. Flip the switch that is to the left of the janitor door. Please only flip it once and wait for assistance. You will be asked for the password. Once a successful password is given, the doors will open and you’ll be allowed in.
