South Tyler Speakeasy Prepares to Open Soon


The South Tyler Speakeasy, once the Half Moon Grill & Saloon is preparing to open, and already has a website full of fun 1920’s phrases! 

We don’t have an exact opening date yet, but their FB Page suggests it will be soon. The menu lists great phrases from the jazz age as well as this greeting.

“We invite you to enjoy our copacetic food and giggle juice, but please don’t get canned on too much brown and become a bimbo. We could without the bushwa and we would hate to give you the bum’s rush and put you in a pinch with a bull. On the other hand, don’t be a bluenose. Be a darb, enjoy our juice joint and if you’ve had a few too many and have gotten spifflicated, let us know. We’ll put you in the struggle buggy of a flivver and get you home safely.”

With menu items like Bugsy’s Boneless Wings and Rolls Royce Rolls, you can bet they plan to carry out the 1920’s theme through and through. They also have pizzas with names like Dilinger and Capone! Reminder, the speakeasy is 21 and up, only.

They also remind you to not act like an idiot, or they will bounce you and call the ‘coppers.’

Before you go, get up to speed on their Gatsby-era lingo listed on their website. Here are 10 to get you started.

Baby Vamp – attractive female
Balled Up – confused, messed up
Bank’s Closed – no kissing or making out
Bimbo – tough guy
Bluenose – excessively puritanical person
Bull – a policeman
Dry Up – shut up or get lost
Edge – intoxication or buzz
Egg – a person who lives the big life
Flapper – free-spirited young woman

Get a taste of the jazz age with the trailer from Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby.
