 4th ANNUAL BEER AND WHISKEY FESTIVAL

EAST VILLE DES FOLIES ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 2016 

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!!  

 

Webster Hall will once again host the 4th annual East Ville des Folies, Prohibition themed Beer and Whiskey tasting festival on Saturday, January 16th with tickets going on sale December 5th, 2015, the anniversary of the repeal of the Volstead Act.  Featuring 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, 130 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.  The era will be revived through performances by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, Queen Esther's Trio, Molly Ryan Quartet and Antique Phonograph DJ Mac.

 

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.

 

WorldWide Records is proud to partner with Variety the Children's Charity of New York for East Ville des Folies Acte Quatre.  A portion of this year's proceeds will be donated to the charity, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit, to support grassroots non-profit organizations in the Tri-State area whose programs use the arts as a catalyst to transform the lives of under-served children.  For more information, please visit: www.varietyny.org/our-work/current-grantees
