1920s Speakeasy Dinner Experience

Shh...You'll need a password to get in, and we may be raided by a 1920s Copper!

A Unique Roaring '20s Dinner Experience

In a disappearing Adirondack icon: an original Lodge whose nearly 140 year history includes a stagecoach inn, a post office, and a trading post. It served as a cure cottage, was an illustrious speakeasy, and a grand hotel. Today, you begin by visiting the 1920s Speakeasy with a Hidden Beer & Wine Cellar and the Adirondacks largest selection of craft import beers and sustainable wines.

Reserve & Receive

  • A potential chance to participate in a "surprise raid" by a 1920's Copper. Make sure you know where the hidden tables are in case we're raided!
  • A three-course dinner with entree choices from our original 1920's menu!

Original 1920s Menu, Local Adirondack Flair

We fuse an 100-mile farm-to-fork culinary focus with Old World imagination. Chef Cathy Hohmeyer's family originally built the Lake Clear Lodge in 1886, sold it, and eventually Ernest Hohmeyer's European family purchased it nearly 80 years later.

We honor the timeless practices of local ingredients, slow cooking, vegetable stocks, bone broths, essential oils, and natural herbs and spices. This is all a part of the essences that are drawn from the hands of four-generations that continue to hand-cut the stocks, stir the slow roasts, and bake artisan desserts with imaginative recipes from a fusion of the Old World and Adirondacks.
