East Bay Bar Opening Party for Capone’s Speakeasy Ends In Mob-Appropriate Fashion

This last weekend, Capone’s Speakeasy opened in Alameda in true 1920s posh mode, welcoming guests dressed to the occasion.

Cocktails aptly named after gangsters and mob activities were served—V-Day Massacre, The Dillinger, Bonnie & Clyde, and so on—and a lively, rowdy time was had by all.

No one, presumably, as much as the owner Mark Strachan, who by the end of the night was arrested for public drunkenness, battery (on a police officer), resisting arrest and violating the terms of his probation.

Strachan allegedly ran across the trafficked street and engaged with officers in what sounds like a brawl before being taken into custody. (View the report here.)

We’d be surprised, but well, would you expect any less from a bar named Capone’s Speakeasy?
