Spec's on Columbus used to be a speakeasy. Now it's a bar. Doesn't look like its changed much.

The hamburger restaraunt on the south-west corner of Masonic and Geary (is that still there?)was a speak-easy, and they made a point of advertising it as such... Also, the Irish pub (the Shamrock?) on the south side of Lincoln just west of 19th was a speak-easy.
