Located in downtown Savannah, Mata Hari is a hidden bar that requires a “secret code” to get in. Yes, I know it sounds fictional but it is actually the truth. Like on a scavenger hunt, your mission will be to find the password or the key to access the bar. Once you pass the door, get ready to experience a whole new world. You will be transported back in time to the 1920s. Yes, time travel is real and this bar is the way to experience history in the present. The whole ambiance - from poker tables to velvet chairs and couches, will set up the historical, classic tone for the night. The music show is fascinating and should not be missed. A singer dressed in a tuxedo and a top hat with a couple of feathers performs on stage while the staff walks around dressed up in traditional 1920s outfits. Talk about an exciting experience!
The drinks menu is definitely what makes this bar an experience that should not be missed. One of the most popular options is the Absinthe Cocktail that is served with a flaming sugar cube on top. It has an anise flavor, like black licorice. You can't get this at many other places!
