Thumbs up New York, NY: The 3rd Annual Beer & Whiskey Festival - February 7, 2015

The 3rd Annual Beer & Whiskey Festival
Webster Hall
125 East 11th Street,
Manhattan, NY (212) 353-1600
Closest Trains are the N, Q, R, 4, 5, 6, L at Union Square.

Webster Hall has announced it will host the 3rd annual East Ville des Folies, Prohibition themed Beer and Whiskey tasting festival on Saturday, February 7th with tickets going on sale January 2nd. Once again, the event will feature four floors and over 40,000 square feet of beers and whiskeys from around the world, the event will take place again at Webster Hall from 2:30PM - 5:30PM with a VIP-Only Preview Hour from 1:30PM - 2:30PM.

At the pinnacle of Nightlife's First Golden Age, Webster Hall was a regular hot spot for quiet knocks and hushed whispers, turn-the-other-cheek coppers and strong booze. Reputedly owned by infamous mobster Al Capone, the venue conveniently ignored the prohibition mantra, and quickly earned its moniker as the "Jewel of the Village" among its adventurous clientele. Fast forward to now, 129 years since its inception, Webster Hall is bringing it all back.

Over 1,500 guests will have the opportunity to sample 4 floors of rare Whiskeys and Beers from around the world while immersed in the culture of the original burlesque hall as it was at the turn of the century. Done with the Webster Hall flair, the event will feature Aerialist, Flappers and Burlesque performances by Gin Minsky, Cassandra Rosebeetle, and Rosie Cheeks. The era will be revived through performances by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, Miss Ida Blue, Queen Esther's Trio and Gelber and Manning.

Complete with vintage photographs that date back far before Instagram found inspiration in their antiquity, the speakeasy bar downstairs will be transformed into an exclusive cocktail lounge and photo booth. The Balcony Lounge will be transformed into the Gentleman's Lounge.

Tickets on sale now:
VIP Tickets: $60
General Admission: $50

Event Details:
Saturday, February 7, 2015
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM- VIP Session
2:30 PM - 5:30 PM General Session

NOTE: This is a 21+ event.
