Savannah’s just a big ol’ speakeasy, isn’t it?

A guest of ours said the line above not too long ago when I was describing how one of my favourite locations used to be a speakeasy back in the day. This city definitely can be. I like to think of us as New Orlean’s tamer and younger sister. But the summer definitely isn’t a bad time to sit down with a cool one!

Crystal Beer Parlor is the former speakeasy I was talking about. Now, it’s a great casual dining restaurant only a three minute walk away from our historic inn. Perhaps as a salute to its past, it’s now a very good microbrewery with equally good cocktails and several good wines to choose from. Another good microbrewery is known as Moon River, a restaurant a little further on Bay Street. When it comes to Moon River, there’s a lot of places we here in the tourist industry like to refer to as “haunted.” But no, Moon River is haunted. Great place for brews and fried green tomatoes topped with blue crab, though. Perhaps with a side of poltergeist…

More of a cocktail person? I am too! Lulu’s Cocktail Bar mixes a sweet tooth with a need for a drink in their chocolate cocktails. Jazz’d is a wonderful Tappas Bar for live music and a variety of cocktails. If you want something more subtle in taste but not atmosphere, perhaps more reminiscent of the 1920’s, I highly recommend Chive.

Not really willing to go out? Well, our large deck is perfect for our guests to relax and split a bottle of wine. Being only a twelve minute walk from Johnny Ganem’s, an all-purpose liquor store. Ask the front desk for a corkscrew. It’s Savannah, ya’ll, of course we have one at the desk!

All in all, Savannah is a perfect chance to escape the heat. And who knows, there may still be speakeasies hidden among the cobblestones…
