> Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co: @ 112 South 18th St. This subterranean Rittenhouse spot "celebrates both the golden age barrooms of the pre-Prohibition era, and the skills bartenders who fled their homes to pursue a noble craft." http://thefranklinbar.com
> Ranstead Room: @ 2013 Ranstead Street. An unmarked door behind El Rey leads into "a den of grown-up amusements." http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-ranstead-room-philadelphia
*How to get in: From 20th, turn left onto Ranstead, pass two trees, then look for a dark door on the red-bricked facade with side-by-side, backwards-and-forwards "R"s, and head on in.
> Hop Sing Laundromat: @ 1029 Race Street. This Chinatown speakeasy has a lot of mystique...and rules. In fact, I think you have to be 25 years old so I may not even be allowed in. https://twitter.com/hopsinglaundry . http://www.phillymag.com/foobooz/2015/03/08/mystery-le-hop-sing-laundromat/
*How to get in: The unmarked entryway (look for the door with the black gate and stainless buzzer) leads you into a penny-floored waiting lobby. Once a seat opens up, you'll be led inside to the blood-red bar room.
> XIX: @ 200 South Broad St, 19th Floor of the Hyatt at the Bellevue. Not technically a speakeasy, but they offer coffee, tea, and $6 old-fashioneds (*during happy hour) in a gorgeous atmosphere, so I couldn't help but it include it! http://www.hyatt.com/gallery/nineteen/xix.html
