The official/historical definition of a speakeasy is an illicit liquor store or nightclub that sprung up during the Prohibition era, when liquor sales were illegal. Fortunately for us, Prohibition was repealed in 1933. Truth and Alibis is a glorious example of a speakeasy with all sorts of amusing motifs, beginning with the trick facade, an elaborately designed, glass-enclosed, fake candy store with rows of gumballs and a little mushroom table.
