Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that could shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th amendment with today's Groupon: for $999, you get a beer-garden package for up to 30 people at 1 Republik Lounge (up to a $2,060 value). Today’s deal includes the $500 fee for the exclusive rental of the beer garden.
One Republik Lounge envelops patrons in four distinct rooms and bathes them in the sound waves of hit tunes and the liquid waves of specialty drinks. Groupon buyers can invite up to 30 cronies, and an unlimited number of imaginary friends, for a two-hour party in a private outdoor beer garden (a $52 value per guest). The premium-open-bar package keeps glasses occupied with cocktails such as jack and coke and Tanqueray and tonic, and draft beers, including Bud Light, Sam Adams, and Blue Moon, flow from the taps. One Republik Lounge's resident chef whips up hearty helpings of grilled hamburgers, chicken skewers, and spiced potatoes to fuel chatting bodies and soak up libations. The grub reaches guests by way of a personal server, allowing partygoers to feel as privileged as a tater tot in a carton of french fries.
1 Republik Lounge
1 Republik Lounge whisks patrons into a low-lit series of rooms decorated to evoke classic Hollywood, Rat Pack glamour, and the Land of Oz. Nine flavors of tobacco-free hookah add an aromatic complement to meals in the beer garden, where red tables polka-dot the patio like the spots on a zebra's back. NCAA season sends cheers coursing past tables along with Italian-tinged entrees such as shrimp scampi and pub snacks including bruschetta and meatballs. Meanwhile, versatile, outgoing bartenders tap beer, pour wine, and mix cocktails while adding to the conviviality of the dive-inspired lounge whose "hospitality is second to none," according to Shecky's NYC Nightlife.
