30+ esteemed local, national, and international brands such as Penderyn, Knappogue Castle, The GlenDronach, and Elijah Craig, just to name a few, will serve spirits, cocktails, and a whole lot of energy to thirsty guests.

Boogie to the sounds of Dandy Wellington & His Band, noshing on abundant hors d'oeuvres and sweet treats before heading down to the basement speakeasy to be enchanted by the sensual stylings of burlesque dancers.

Don't miss this chance to rewind the clock back to a moment in history full of pleasure and frivolity without hopping in a time machine...


Forbes calls The Harlem Whiskey Renaissance "an event to celebrate New York City's past and present with the fuel of Prohibition; whiskey."

The spectacular returns for another year of whimsical, artistic, and cultural amusement for your taste buds and for your mind. Evoking the magical nostalgia of the glitzy 1920s, this gathering harkens to the area's past with an evening of drinks, dancing, and a heavy dose of pizzazz.

Within the alluring Neoclassical landmark building that is the Museum of the City of New York at the heart of the Museum Mile on Fifth Avenue, be ready to sip, sup, and sparkle with your fellow whiskey enthusiasts.

The museum will be transformed into a jazzy Harlem speakeasy, infusing with a hint of flair and mystique in order to showcase 30+ of the world’s finest whiskeys, bourbons, Scotches, and ryes, plus gourmet eats should hunger creep in.

As you drink unlimited samples from bottles of The BenRiach, Glenglassaugh, Catoctin Creek, and Old Forester, among others, fill up on culinary delights. Think whiskey-infused truffles, succulent pizzas, and more to give you a succession of palatable pleasures.

Once you've imbibed on liquid courage, the experts at Harlem Dance Society will teach you a few moves so you can shake it with style to the lively tunes by Dandy Wellington & His Band, whom you might recognize from residencies at Macao Trading Co., Hotel Chantelle, and Barney's ad campaigns.

The cherry atop an unforgettable night will be exceptional burlesque performances from industry pros Genie Adagio, Perle Noire, and Nina Josephine will pay homage to the glory days of Harlem cabarets.

Relive the past, channelling your inner Josephine Baker or Louis Armstrong to Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Foxtrot 'til last call!
