That's right, four floors of rare beers and whiskeys from all over the world lavishly laid out in Webster Hall's 40,000 sq-foot venue.
As a common hangout for some of our most famous mobsters and mafia crew, Webster Hall is will be temporarily stowing away their disco ball to make space for some more era-relevant entertainment. Featuring Aerialist, Flappers and Burlesque performances by Gin Minsky, Cassandra Rosebeetleand Rosie Cheek. And that's not all. The tasting festival will further complete the experience with performances by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, Miss Ida Blue, Queen Esther’s Trio and Gelber and Manning.

This weekend, Webster Hall welcomes Dim Mak Records' resident trap-aficionado Ookay to its weekly Brite Nites event for a birthday celebration unlike any other, with special guest SLANDER added in for good measure. A phantasm of his former self, Ookay shook things up last year with the release of his Ghost EP, a five-track introspective of sorts; each track showcasing a side of Ookay's production that may not always be evident in the songs that made his name prevalent among electronic music enthusiasts in 2014.
Webster Hall is wasting no time this year with scheduling the best artists they can for their weekly, well-known Girls & Boys party, having landed Robin Schulz for this Friday's edition of the event.
