Prohibition

Seattle Speakeasies During Prohibition

Where did the scofflaws frequent during the prohibition years in Seattle and Tacoma?

July 25, 2011

Where did the scofflaws go to drink during those dark, dry days from 1916 to 1935 in Washington state? This map features local establishments that were frequented during the prohibition years in Seattle and Tacoma.

During the years following prohibition, many former speakeasies were torn down and replaced with alternative structures, such as businesses, parks or parking lots. On this map we aim to provide you with the space that once housed these 1920s hotspots, so you can try and picture what once stood in its place.
