The Back Room: History

A living relic of the Prohibition era, the Back Room is a speakeasy located on the Lower East Side of New York City. It’s the real deal, with secret doorways, passwords, authentic 1920s details, and maybe even a few ghosts! BTRtv’s Johanna Botta visits the bar and gets the real story from general manager Tim Bassett.
