Established in 2018 we are the first speakeasy here in South Lake Tahoe. Lead by our master mixologist, Leonardo Loques, we bring and amazing array of traditional cocktails as well as some creative offering develop by our team here. We take pride in every aspect of the experience, from the alcohol selection, the atmosphere and down to the ice cubes that we use. Come pay us a visit by coming to Social House and asking to visit Community Speakeasy.
We welcome you to Community Speakeasy with open arms. We love hosting you and want to help you have an amazing time on your visit. Feel free to converse among yourselves and others but try to speak easy and not overshadow the conversations other guests might be having. Loud noises also bring unwanted attention by the coppers.
Due to the limited space in Community Speakeasy, we ask that everyone respects the hour and a half time limit we have in place. When it is approaching the end of your party's time, one of our bartenders will let you and your guests know. We will of course allow you to finish your drink before departing. If you have finished your beverage and are just soaking in the sites and sounds we ask to be conscious of other guests who maybe waiting to try some of the delicious concoctions that our bartenders create.
We welcome any and all pictures as long as you keep your camera flash off. Bright lights tend to bring the fuzz and we want to keep open and creating wonderful libations for you all night. Taking video however is forbidden, video evidence holds weight in court.
Our bartenders are highly trained not only in the art of creating delicious cocktails but also in hosting etiquette. No reason to stand at the bar, let us come to you. Kick back and relax, let us take care of you.
Please be respectful of other patrons here, within your party and without. We are all seeking a good time and a chance to relax from the toils of the outside world. Please keep any and all controversial conversations outside. We all come from different walks of life at different times of our lives and just want to have a good time, but please show the respect that you would like to be given to each and every other patron and employee. If we have to ask you to leave, the house will close the tab on the card provided with a 20% gratuity included.
When we are having a good time we often forget ourselves and at times to pay the bill. If you happen to leave a tab open when you depart, the house will add a 20% gratuity on the card used to open the tab.
