Around The World With Craig Whitton

Chasing The Wind with Blackthorn - one of our best series to day: Travel journals from one of writers.

The Fedora BarWhere Is The Fedora Bar?

Vintage Aficionado "Wild Root" found this picture on-line, and many theories on where “The Fedora Bar” actually is.

Updated November 2007: For many years, none of us knew where it was or what kind of establishment it was until Doug Palumbo discovered it's location. Finding The Fedora Bar - "During Prohibition, the restaurant (known as Charlie’s Garden) was run as a law-abiding operation. However, as was the case with many “legitimate” businesses during that time, they also ran a speakeasy in the back of the building, complete with passwords and a hidden door."

 This looks like a great place to visit! Have you been there? If so, drop us a line.
