Overview
More
A secluded space used as storage space for decades, The Speakeasy at Omni William Penn Hotel, has been restored into its former historic glory. In true 1920's tradition, Pittsburgh's only Speakeasy is tucked beneath the hotel lobby. Visually, The Speakeasy references the noir era with plush scarlet seating surrounded by a lavish flocked wall covering and topped by a tin roof to remain true to Pittsburgh’s classic elegance and prohibition discretion. Dark and sensual, cozy and private, and no passwords required.

Located inside the Omni William Penn Hotel. Not always open, so be sure to verify that it is, before going to it. A great piece of Pittsburgh history.

Sort of wandered in after dining next door. Lower level of the Omni William penn hotel with a true speakeasy vibe. Great ambiance, cool menu, great drinks, very relaxed and you feel secretive!

The Speakeasy is located on the lower levels of the William Penn Hotel. It is modelled on the "hidden" bars of the Prohibition Period. Small, dark, quiet and very relaxing, it would be easy to miss, but don't. The atmosphere is fantastic. The drinks are...More

Descending the stairs from the lobby of the William Penn Hotel, it would be easy to miss the appropriately, low-key signage for Speakeasy. Entering the smoked glass doors, you walk into the posh, dimly-lit, 1920’s inspired space. The Art Deco room design containing dark wood...More
