About Your Host

Anthony Caporale is a true pioneer in the beverage world, internationally known for being the first to bring mixology to both YouTube, with his seminal web video series Art of the Drink TV, and then to the New York stage with his groundbreaking Off-Broadway musical comedy, The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking.

What we'll do

The drinks are on us as you join world-renowned mixologist and raconteur Anthony Caporale for a boozy romp through the history of spirits and cocktails in this critically-acclaimed new play with drinks and music. Combining Anthony's encyclopedic knowledge of beverage history and decades of bartending experience with his legendary skills as a storyteller and entertainer, The Imbible treats audiences to a completely original and thoroughly enjoyable evening of theatre. Playing in an authentic New York speakeasy that was actually used as a meeting place by the notorious Tammany Society, The Imbible sweeps audiences along a 10,000-year journey through history and across the globe accompanied by craft cocktails and the vocal stylings of The Backwaiters acapella group! Sit back and enjoy the music and drinks while Anthony holds forth on the history and science behind alcoholic beverages, traces their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling spirits, guides the audience through cocktail tastings, and - like any good bartender - keeps his guests laughing throughout the night. 3 craft cocktails are included. The New York Times declares The Imbible is "the best Fringe deal!" "Remarkably compelling!" raves Time Out New York! Four Stars and Critics' Pick! The Huffington Post proclaims The Imbible is "an absolute must-see!"
