1 PART EDUCATION. 2 PARTS RECREATION.
This is the show that started it all, skyrocketing from a sold-out 5-performance run at The New York International Fringe Festival in 2014 to become one of the longest-running Off-Broadway productions in history with three hugely successful sequels (and counting). Hailed as “remarkably compelling” by Time Out New York and consistently reviewed by audiences as one of the best Off-Broadway shows on sites like Google, TripAdvisor, and Yelp, A SPIRITED HISTORY OF DRINKING sweeps audiences along a 10,000-year journey through history and across the globe, accompanied by three complimentary craft cocktails and the vocal stylings of The Backwaiters a cappella group! This groundbreaking show pours through the history and science behind cocktails and spirits, traces their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling alcohol, and of course keeps audiences laughing throughout the night!
"One of the five best things to do in New York City!"

THE STORY OF RUM TOLD BY SINGING PIRATES!
Our audiences have been clamoring for us to bring this show back, and we can't wait for you to experience its return! Join us for New Pirate Onboarding as we muster our crew for the maiden voyage of the Pirate Ship Bumbo! We'll cover everything there is to know about how to be a successful pirate, starting of course with the history, applications, and proper appreciation of rum. Follow this tropical spirit from its origins in Persia, through the pivotal role it played in forging colonial empires on both sides of the Atlantic by powering the infamous Triangular Trade, to the creation of classic modern-day drinks like the Daiquiri and the Hurricane. Along the way, you'll be treated to three complimentary rum drinks including authentic pirate recipes while you enjoy gorgeous, traditional sea shanties and experience a taste of life aboard a golden-age pirate ship – all woven into THE IMBIBLE's signature mix of comedy, science, history, and some of the best drinks in New York!
"Genius!"

SCROOGE LEARNS ABOUT COCKTAILS PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE!
This is New York's holiday show for grownups, and it instantly became a tradition with our audiences! It’s the morning after Scrooge’s spectral visits, and our hero is determined to celebrate Christmas by throwing a party “just like old Fezziwig!” However, he realizes he has no idea how to go about the thing, and the libations prove particularly puzzling. Summoning Marley back for some additional help, they depart on another trip through time and space, this time with acapella accompaniment, to mix cocktails past, present, and future under the expert tutelage of three Christmas Spirits.
"A sweet holiday celebration!"
