Not yet rated | write a review
Gaining access into worlds hitherto unknown is a most intoxicating privilege. In an era when even the most obscure knowledge is widely available, secrecy contains major cache. Perhaps this is why, well past the Prohibition era, the contemporary speakeasy thrives, albeit under the radar. These destinations, infused with an illicit, festive atmosphere, admit only the most discerning, daring, and "in the know" night crawler. In this beautifully illustrated book we will reveal the coordinates of some of the world''s most exclusive hotspots that speak volumes to the true nightlife connoisseur. Through photographs and interviews with elite nightlife impresarios, SPEAKEASY takes us on a journey into an alluring underground culture.



Christian Alexander is a noted arbiter of nightlife culture, with over twenty years of experience as an exclusive concierge for A-List celebs. As the NY Post describes, ""His phone number is passed around the country like the password to a secret club for the mega-cool."" His family has ties that go back to Chicago''s Prohibition era, and many of his relatives have had careers in the entertainment industry, so it''s no wonder that Alexander lives and breathes the society of the night. His involvement is extensive not only in New York but around the globe, jetting off to every major cosmopolitan city to bring his own brand of cool to events and collaborations. Alexander''s insider status makes him an invaluable curator of a book on the subject.
