Speakesy Trillby & Chadwick

Trillby & Chadwick is a speakeasy with dimmed lights, velvet sofas and excellent drinks. Founded in 2014 and inspired by a secret police story, which is also reflected in the drink lists. The interior of the place is exactly as it should be in a speakeasy. Twilight lighting envelops the velvet sofas and jazz from the 1920s plays in the background. The atmosphere is so authentic that you can quickly imagine that you have been transported into the past via a time machine. In addition to drinks, the book-shaped cocktail list has diary entries detailing about the past of private investigators. Drinks are partly old classics, but the list is updated from time to time.
