'East Ville des Folies' celebrates the Prohibition era. Webster Hall, was reportedly once owned by mobster Al Capone. The building opened in 1886 and is known as the 'Jewel of the Village'. It is the obvious and perfect setting for this event.
Webster Hall will transform its four floors into a whiskey and beer bar, with live music inspired from the 1920's and burlesque acts around the clock. The culture of 1920's at Webster Hall will feature aerialists and flappers from the bygone era. Vintage photographs and a speakeasy bar will occupy the lower floor, while a Gentleman's Lounge will transform the balcony.
The event showcases an incredible variety of beer, as well as a huge selection of special whiskeys.
