For those who thought that speakeasies went out with the end of prohibition, Orlando's Hanson's Shoe Repair proves that the tradition is still alive and well.
Hanson's Shoe Repair is a clandestine bar located above an art gallery in downtown Orlando. Prior to entering the bar, guests must call up a special number to receive the secret password, which changes daily. Once inside, the speakeasy theme carries through the bar with exposed brick walls, oak panel ceilings and vintage fixtures. There is also an outdoor patio, where guests can gaze at the stars while listening to live bands play on the stage above them. Even the drinks at Hanson's Shoe Repair feel as though they are from a bygone era with contemporary twists on beloved cocktails.
For those attending Trend Hunter’s Orlando innovation conference who are interesting in better understanding the popularity of nostalgic venues, this charming speakeasy is the perfect spot.
