The atmosphere of the speakeasy

Nick Caraway serves as a confidant and connector to the other main characters. Nick is Daisy's twice-removed cousin, knows Tom from college, and is the next door neighbor and friend to Jay Gatsby. Each the other main characters need him for a variety of reasons. Tom needs him as an ally, and Daisy needs him as a friend. Gatsby needs him to be the bridge between his past and his future with Daisy.

Tom takes Nick into his confidence and to his private apartment for a wild party with his mistress and a few other friends. Gatsby also confides in Nick, divulging his past, his unending love for Daisy, and his desire to rekindle their love of old.

Nick and Tom knew each other in college. Tom, often boastful, frequently talks about things he knows nothing about and usually ends up sounding foolish. His wife, Daisy, often laughs at him.

Tom is also a bold liar and an adulterer. Throughout the novel, he has an affair with Myrtle Wilson, a fiery woman who is the total opposite of his wife. He even befriends Myrtle's husband and convinces him that Jay Gatsby is the man his wife has been seeing. He also tells Myrtle's husband that Gatsby is the one responsible for Myrtle's death.

The Eighteenth Amendment was ratified in the hopes of eliminating alcohol from American life. In that respect, it failed. To the contrary, people intent on drinking found loopholes in the newly passed anti-liquor laws that allowed them to slake their thirst, and, when that didn’t work, they turned to illegal avenues to do so. An entire black market—comprising bootleggers, speakeasies, and distilling operations—emerged as a result of Prohibition, as did organized crime syndicates which coordinated the complex chain of operations involved in the manufacture and distribution of alcohol. Corruption in law enforcement became widespread as criminal organizations used bribery to keep officials in their pockets. Prohibition was detrimental to the economy as well, by eliminating jobs supplied by what had formerly been the fifth largest industry in America. By the end of the 1920s, Prohibition had lost its luster for many who had formerly been the policy’s most ardent supporters, and it was done away with by the Twenty-first Amendment in 1933.

Though women had always imbibed, they rarely did so in public before Prohibition. In small towns, there were no places for women to drink anonymously. Throughout the West, including in Butte, Montana, saloons were male-only establishments. Men were initiated into a hard-drinking social life that took place behind closed doors. The only women at saloons were prostitutes, and in 1907 laws were passed criminalizing women in spaces designated for drinking. Women did purchase alcohol from saloons, but these transactions took place at the back door and liquor was consumed at home. Prohibition changed everything. Private restaurant-nightclubs sprang up when saloons closed, and these establishments welcomed women. People found old recipes for wine and liquor in their grandmothers’ cookbooks and got to producing alcohol. Women also started running their own speakeasies: “home speaks,” in which they served homemade liquor and perhaps provided a phonograph for some dancing. Working- and middle-class women began making their own wine and even operating stills.

The atmosphere of the speakeasy

The mood is largely dark, pessimistic, and vapid as set by the purposelessness and carelessness of the wealthy, the ongoing string of meaningless parties, the ugliness of the Valley of Ashes, and the tragic deaths of Gatsby and Myrtle. Only Nick Carraway's honest and moral view of life breaks the sense of tragedy.
