East Ville des Folies – Acte Quatre

WHEN: Saturday, Jan 16, 2016 1:30 PM – 5:30PM

WHERE: Webster Hall, 125 E. 11th St. New York, NY

PLEASE NOTE: 21 years and over



Reputedly owned by infamous mobster Al Capone in the 1920s, Webster Hall was a regular hot spot for quiet knocks and hushed whispers, turn-the-other-cheek coppers and strong booze. At the pinnacle of Nightlife’s First Golden Age, 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, 130 years since its inception, Webster Hall is bringing it all back.

On January 16, 2016, the legendary venue is resurrecting the not-so-temperate 1920’s with its Fourth Annual Beer and Whiskey Festival called East Ville Des Folies (“East Village of Follies”).

On the eve of the festival, a $50 ticket will get you…

  • 3 full hours of sampling of four floors of types of beers and whiskeys
  • Live entertainment: Burlesque dancers, Swing Jazz bands, Trapeze artists, and Circus Acts
  • Access to an assortment of local food vendors
  • Commemorative Glass
  • And Much, Much More!

The festival will feature everything from rye, corn, and clear whiskey, and there will be no shortage of inspiring international brews. We promise there will be something you haven’t heard of before! There will also be top-of-the-line 1920s entertainment and delectable food and treats. A ticket includes a commemorative sampling cup.

Webster Hall has old bones. It’s housed countless club nights, concerts, and even a recording studio throughout its 130 year tenure. In March 2008, it was declared a New York City Landmark. Yet not many know that the historic venue was once reputedly owned by legendary mobster Al Capone. To this day, you can find tunnels used for smuggling booze by Scarface and his mob snaking underneath its floorboards. This January we will make a toast to that glorious era.

Come get foolish with us.

GA Session $50: 2:30-5:30 PM
