The Wicked Rabbit: Go Down The Rabbit Hole At This Omaha Speakeasy

When most people think of a speakeasy, the images that come to mind are often dark alleyways, a secret entrance, and some 1920s style vintage cocktails! And even for modern-day speakeasies, that’s not too far off the mark. Speakeasies can still be found all over the United States; they remain popular going-out destinations for tourists and locals alike. Even in the sleepy, friendly mid-western states, there are speakeasies galore for you to visit! My favorite new bar is a hidden speakeasy in Omaha, Nebraska called ‘The Wicked Rabbit.’ The vibe is amazing, the drinks are delicious, and the whole...

But now that I’m living out west, it seems it’s time for me to see what all the fuss is about! During my last visit to Omaha to perform with the symphony, my fabulous host and her...
