Allusion Speakeasy is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado and we are a revolving popup concept. We now have two locations in Colorado Springs. Our eastside location is on the powers corridor and our west location is in downtown Colorado Springs. Allusion Bar changes their theme every quarter, delivering a new experience, cocktail menu, and décor.

What is an ALLUSION?

An allusion is a figure of speech or a reference to a place, person, or event. This can be real or imaginary and may refer to anything, including fiction, folklore, historical events, or religious manuscripts. The reference can be direct or may be inferred, and can broaden a person's understanding. We are Allusion Bar and we welcome you to experience our creative happy place.

Didn't have any food. Our third visit to Allusion, the atmosphere/ambiance was amazing as usual. The staff is always friendly, only reason we marked the 'Service' down slightly on this trip (compared to the previous two) was because it was very busy and the waiter couldn't come around very often. The drinks are always delicious and fun, albeit a little pricey. Will definitely return!

Great experience. Staff were engaging & attentive. Cocktails were so much fun. As a vegetarian, the food at most places is carrot & celery sticks, but here, the appetizers & food were incredible & they had a menu for vegetarians & vegan friendly. Looking forward to going back. Overall a wonderful experience in Wonderland.

Overall experience once at Allusion was wonderful. My family and I had a great time - the drink offerings were diverse and allowed each of us (with very different likes/dislikes) to have an enjoyable experience. My only complaint is that I had originally booked a reservation for the week of December 26th prior to learning that Allusion would be closed that week for renovations. The day before our December 27 reservation, I got a text confirming my reservation and, thankfully, double checked Allusion's website. I noticed it said the location was closed, so I switched my reservation for the following week. I would recommend double checking and letting guests know if their reservation conflicts with a time the location is closed to minimize confusion. I know it can be hard to predict, especially since I booked 1 month in advance. Thanks!

Loved it. Star Wars was such a fun thematic. Excited to come back for Alice in Wonderland. If you ever redo themes, would very much love to revisit Harry Potter. James Bond would be another theme suggestion. Keep it up! We will be back.

everything was great and amazing service. Loved the creativity that went into the drinks and their vessels. Food was ok, wish there were more options in the appetizer side/more small plates or that they were in theme. The ramen while tasting really good is not really bar food and was hard to in the dim lit room.

Loved the decor, the service was outstanding. Only one minor negative was how incredibly dark it was. I get it, it adds to the ambiance... but I couldn't read the menu without using my phone light and the server couldn't read my ID without using the light up decor candle. Just a little more light from a lantern or something would have made it perfect. Will return and excited to check out the other themes.
