Beer and Whiskey Details
Beer and Whiskey
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, 128 years since its inception, Webster Hall is bringing it all back.
On February 7, 2015, the legendary venue is resurrecting the not-so-temperate 1920’s with its Third annual Beer and Whiskey Festival called East Ville Des Folies (“East Village of Follies”).
