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, 126 years since its inception, Webster Hall is bringing it all back.

On November 5th, 2012, the legendary venue is resurrecting the not-so-temperate 1920's with its first annual Beer and Whiskey Festival called East Ville Des Folies ("East Village of Follies").
