So, before I begin, I need to keep the secret of the other speakeasy I know, or else it would not be any fun. :-)

A quick google search reveals another one... Calvin C's Speakeasy. It is listed on multiple websites such as Yelp and the like... all that is given is a phone number an address. I tried calling... someone answered, there was 5 seconds of silence, then a lady that didn't answer in English. I asked if she knew English and got hung up on.

I would call this an elaborate joke, but there are a lot of websites that show a martini glass with a mic in it as their logo. They also have a barebones facebook page and are listed in the Yellow Pages. Does anyone know anything about this?

I just read the reviews in Yelp. They are mixed. It seems like an "OK" Mexican restaurant. I guess it is Mexican. Most comment about the Mexican dishes. I might try it if around the area to see for myself. Worth a check.

I think you're confused...its easy to do with the way Yelp is organized. "Paco's Tacos and Tequila" appears underneath Calvin C's under the heading "You Might Also Consider". Yelp doesn't actually have any reviews for Calvin C's.

It clearly indicates that the restaurant is on east 9th Street. I found the restaurant and read several customer comments. I may be confused, but I wasn't until you said you think I am. Now I am. It seemed pretty clear. I guess I shouldn't have responded to this topic.

P.S. (5 minutes later) My reference was listed under "Calvin Speakeasy" and I tried to phone and got the same response in Spanish. I am not officially confused. It could be a restaurant but it might be a good idea if the person answering the phone spoke English. I only speak "survival" Spanish. Food might be authentic.

Yes, Yelp provides the address and phone number for "Calvin Speakeasy", but there are no reviews or comments for it. All reviews and comments are in regard to other businesses. In fact, there is this:

"Hey there trendsetter! You could be the first review for Calvin Speakeasy."

If you look closely, you'll see what I'm saying.

That address is the location of charter school, Charlotte LAB School, btw.
