Slide Review

During Prohibition, one of the city's more notorious speakeasies was accessible only via a secret-wall passage and a 15-foot slide that whisked patrons into the basement "restaurant" known as Coffee Dan's (it wasn't really a restaurant). That space has been reclaimed, restored, and aptly renamed Slide. A swanky, modern version of its former self, the place still has a slide, though stairs are also available. On the weekends, DJs spin a mix of hip-hop, downtempo, and Rat Pack–era hits from a 1920s baby grand piano that has been converted to a DJ booth. Like similar-themed bars within the city, the facility is completely unmarked.
