With 4 floors of rare craft beers and whiskeys from around the world, Webster Hall is proud to announce the second annual prohibition themed tasting event "East Ville des Folies: Acte Deux" on January 18th from 2:30PM – 5:30PM.

Reputedly owned by infamous mobster Al Capone, Webster Hall conveniently ignored the prohibition mantra, and quickly earned its moniker as the "Jewel of the Village" among its adventurous clientele. Fast forward to now, 128 years since its inception, Webster Hall is bringing it all back.

    The Sunny Side Social Club

    Antique Phonograph DJ MAC

    Miss Ida Blue is a female-led Brothel Blues group with its core emanating from the rich and roaring coos of Brooklyn born Miss Ida herself. With support from members of "Woody Allen's Jazz Band" and the Boardwalk Empire orchestra, "Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks", you'll hear blues as a drunk, raunchy, and illicit work of art.
