This Shop Has A Secret Door That Leads To An Amazing Speakeasy

A long time ago, a speakeasy may have been something taboo or even something that you actually had to search high and low to find. But now that alcohol is legal in most places, we don’t have to search very far for our favorite drinking establishment. But in Shanghai, they thought of bringing back the appeal of the speakeasy with a secret Coke machine. If you are a little confused, that’s okay. Lets take a step inside the a placed called “Flask” and it will all start to make sense.
