Shh… Come closer… Have you heard about this cute little speakeasy downtown? It's called The Lady Silvia and it's worth the search. Once you find it, you may be tempted to keep it all to yourself -- but don't. Everyone deserves a shot at this hidden hotspot.
The unassuming facade of the building may make you question whether you're in the right place. Even as you walk up to the outer door you may wonder, "Am I just wandering into a random business?" Don't worry. It'll all work out. The second you stroll through the inner door you'll understand why some secrets are better off spilled.
Everything about the atmosphere within The Lady Silvia proves that it's too cool to beg for attention. Like a library that made love to the hideout of a Batman villain, The Lady Silvia makes everyone feel like they're in on a conspiracy to overthrow the boring bar motif.
The books on the walls are real. The drinks definitely are too. Modern touches like TVs in the shelves and a DJ booth set into the far wall sublimely complement the Mad Hatter's tea party vibe. And it's smoke-free, so you won't have to peer through a haze of second-hand smoke when you artistically dissect the paintings on the ceiling.
Sporting a selection of signature cocktails and available for special events, The Lady Silvia is a locals bar that tourists will love for being dark in all the right ways. If you want to get away from the crowds and clichés and see a modern take on Vegas' bootlegging past, check out The Lady Silvia... if you can find it.
