    Re: Speakeasy

    Hi Andyneck,

    It’s a term originated in late 1800’s in the United States, and it refers to illicit liquor store or drinking club, especially during Prohibition in the United States, and to the notion of speaking “easily” when ordering illicit goods.

    Regards,

    José Manuel Rosón Bravo
