The English-German dictionary translates speakeasy with "Mondscheinkneipe" or "Flüsterstube". A speakeasy was a place where alcoholic drinks were sold illegally in the 1920’s in the United States, in the period known as Prohibition. During that time, selling alcohol was illegal throughout the United States.
