A Speakeasy, also called a blind pig or blind tiger, is an establishment that illegally sells alcoholic beverages. Such establishments came into prominence in the United States during the period known as Prohibition (1920–1933, longer in some states). During this time, the sale, manufacture, and transportation (bootlegging) of alcoholic beverages was illegal throughout the United States.
According to an 1889 newspaper, “Unlicensed saloons in Pennsylvania are known as ‘speak-easies.’ They were so called because of the practice of speaking quietly about such a place in public, or when inside it, so as not to alert the police or neighbors."
