ORYX NORTICO

Nortico, Oryx Capital's speakeasy, is a clandestine and classy atmosphere located in the back part of the restaurant where the concept and spirit of the Prohibition-Era speakeasy lives on. Known only through rumor and entered only by reservation, Nortico is reminiscent of off-grid nostalgia. Instead of serving bootleg gin, this speakeasy specializes in specialty cocktails.

After the Prohibition, there was a major and permanent shift in American social life. The illicit bars, also referred to as “blind pigs” and “gin joints,” multiplied, especially in urban areas. They ranged from fancy clubs with jazz bands and ballroom dance floors to dingy backrooms, basements and rooms inside apartments. No longer segregated from drinking together, men and women reveled in Speakeasies.
