Another bar that's not technically a speakeasy, but definitely has the same vibe, The Ruin is located in an old brick building in Sugar House. The interior is dimly lit with exposed brick walls, antique furnishings, and a cozy fireplace. The cocktail menu is extensive, with a focus on classic drinks made with house-made syrups and bitters.
