British Invasion

The vibe, the entrance, the cocktails all scream speakeasy, but the sounds not so much. The patrons aren’t speaking in hushed tones because of the live music you can find on any given night. If you’re looking for the perfect hybrid of a speakeasy and a live music venue, The Bassment is the place for you. 

Find yourself at the door of The Hampton Social; you’re almost there, but not quite. Venture into the alley and enter through a door labeled Tobacconist. If you feel like you’ve gone through a time machine and you’re in Britain in the 60s, you’re in the right place. 

With music blaring from Hip Hop to New Orleans funk, everyone will be able to catch an act that interests them. The drink menu here is one to savor, from a smoke-infused Bowie to a bathtub of gin!
