A 'Speak Easy' was one of the many saloons in the United States that illegally served alcoholic beverages during Prohibition, which was the period from 1920 to 1933 in which national law prohibited the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating beverages. Prior to Prohibition, the saloons admitted only men as patrons, but as speakeasies they allowed both men and women.
