Though LinkedIn's online presence is all about professionalism, the LinkedIn New York office features a hidden gem that encourages employees to let loose every once in a while. By entering through a vestibule that ostensibly seems to be an art installation with over 100 rotary phones lining the walls, LinkedIn employees can open a hidden door to reveal a speakeasy.
The office, which was designed by international firm Interior Architects, is on the 28th floor of the historic Empire State Building. As such, hiding a speakeasy — the type of drinking establishment that offered illicit drinking during the prohibition — in the LinkedIn New York office feels especially fitting.
Beyond the speakeasy, the office was generally designed as a "club level" and includes things like a screening room and a pool table.
