Whiskey and beer. Nothing goes down smoother. Which is probably why the 4th annual Prohibition themed beer and whiskey tasting festival, East Ville des Folies, is bringing it back to NYC for what is sure to be another successful year. Taking place on Saturday, January 16th, from 2:30-5:30pm at Webster Hall, this one-of-a-kind event takes you back in time to when flappers and burlesque stars ruled the world and whiskey was sneakily chugged behind closed doors.
Four floors of beers and whiskies from around the world will keep you toasty (and toasted) as aerialists and burlesque performers entertain the crowds. Vintage photographs will adorn the speakeasy bar downstairs, which will be transformed into an exclusive cocktail lounge and photo booth, while the balcony lounge will become the gentleman’s lounge.
Brought to you by WorldWide Records, the event has partnered with Variety the Children’s Charity of New York, to which a portion of the profits from ticket sales will go. Additionally, performances by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, Queen Esther’s Quartet, Ms. Molly Ryan and Antique Phonograph DJ Mac will transport you back to a different time during the afternoon event.
Snag your tickets starting at only $50, here. Hope to see you there!
