'The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking' Combines History and Booze at the SoHo Playhouse

The perfect show has arrived for those who like to appreciate the arts while boozing it up. The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking tells the stories behind your favorite drinks, all while the audience gets to drink the beverages being spoken about. Can’t think of a better deal than that!

Critically acclaimed, The Imbible takes place at an authentic New York speakeasy previously used as a meeting place for the notorious Tammany Society, the perfect place to drink and discover. World-renowned mixologist and raconteur Anthony Caporale takes the audience along a 10,000-year journey through history and all around the world as viewers enjoy craft cocktails along with music by The Backwaiters acapella group.

According to a press release, while enjoying drinks and music, Caporale will talk about the history and science behind the curious cocktails we drink, trace their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling spirits, and — like any good bartender — keeps his guests laughing throughout the night! Think Bill Nye meets your neighborhood bartender, but with fancier drinks.

Time Out New York says the show is “ a must-see for anyone who enjoys free booze, which is probably nearly everyone.”

The Imbible will be shown at the SoHo Playhouse all through February and March with spring dates to be announced. You must show proof of legal drinking age at the performance because three craft cocktails are included. To purchase tickets, click here.
