Still reveling in the limelight of being recently named “Best Speakeasy” by LA WEEKLY, Next Door Lounge is staying true to its speakeasy-inspired roots by launching a unique series of indulgence and entertainment offered for a limited time only. Appropriately launching on October 28 – the date the Volstead Act was made law – Prohibitions Days includes the new “Prescription for Prohibition” Sundays, off-the-menu yet in-the-know drink and food specials, Next Door Lounge’s very own batch of moonshine and aged cocktails, and surprise entertainment performances. The six-week series ends with a “bang” on National Repeal Day, December 5.
Next Door Lounge would not have earned its speakeasy credibility without some sense of secrecy, so patrons are encouraged to visit the Next Door Lounge Facebook and Twitter pages to learn more about Prohibition Days. In the meantime, Big Boss (a.k.a. Ferris Wehbe, owner of Next Door Lounge) is willing to share the following information with the press.
Hollywood revelers looking for their first fix of Prohibition Days can do so with the introduction of the new Sunday nights at Next Door Lounge starting October 28. “Prescription for Prohibition” features a guest list of who’s who in Hollywood, bottle service tables assigned with sultry and sassy bootlegged servers, live musical entertainment and performance art reminiscent of the 1920s, and special celebrity guests. The six week capsule collection of “Prescription for Prohibition” Sundays is produced by The Revolver Group’s Benjamin Greenfield. Doors open at 6:00 pm.
Big Boss is well aware that times are still tough, so he is rewarding his loyal patrons with special priced menu items throughout the work week. Utilizing his growing “social networks”, people in the know can discover significantly reduced prices on food and drink on weekdays. However, they’ll need to respond quickly because the Big Boss has limited rations each week.
Adding further authenticity to Prohibition Days, Next Door Lounge will also offer its very own batch of moonshine in collaboration with Hudson Whiskey. Corn whiskey was placed into American Oak casks and aged in small quantities to create the special sauce. After the moonshine was aged, Next Door Lounge utilized the whiskey soaked barrels to then create aged Manhattans, otherwise known as Madattans, using Hudson Baby Bourbon, Cynar, Carpano Antica, Benedictine, and wild flower bitters. Just like the days of prohibition, supplies are limited and may not last until December 5.
