I am so excited to get to share the details of Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar! I’ve been following this concept since the rumor phase and am thrilled that it came to life.
With the entrance being slightly off the beaten path, from the moment you approach the door for Enzo’s Hideaway, you know you’re in for a real treat. As I entered through the slightly hidden doorway, I felt as though I had been transported into a speakeasy with a unique history. An owl umbrella holder sits next to a pillar just beyond the door; the pillar is covered with scribbles and writings to add to this unique old-school vibe, including sentiments such as, “I was born in the wrong era.”
As you continue into the underground Tunnel Bar, shelves of whiskey, rum, and other libations sit as though freshly brought in by rumrunners. The jaunty sign above them starts off with the sheet music for the song, “Nobody knows how dry I am!” What a fun place!
Throughout the booths going down the hallway, the speakeasy theme is continued with collages of newspapers speaking of prohibition, flappers, and headlines such as, “Who is your bootlegger?” The partially exposed brick walls add to the idea of this roughly hewn bar, which I imagine could have been a hangout for the who’s who of the prohibition era.
The décor in the main bar and seating area is the perfect mixture of the rough speakeasy style and clean art-deco lines. A cooler filled with various meats and cheeses hangs out just next to the kitchen and bar, where delicious treats are created for the guests. There is even a very exclusive-feeling table in a room stocked with shelves and shelves of wine. What a fun place to sit!
Enzo’s Hideaway is the type of place that makes me wonder, “If these walls could talk, what would they say?” In a way, these walls do tell a part of their story. One side of the Tunnel Bar is covered in art, scribbles, inventions, and even inspirational quotes. Ranging from names of individuals, The Andrews Sisters, invention sketches, and quotes such as, “A goal without a plan is just a wish,” I could spend a couple of hours just trying to see all of the details.
There is a bit of a hidden gem over on the left side of the sketch wall. If you look closely, you can see the signature of Thomas A. Edison, and a quote by Edison himself: “’I have not failed I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work!’ – T. E.” Could this be a sign that this is where Edison hung out when not at his namesake location, right next door? The story is thrilling!
