Our second private BTSNYC Experience in partnership with WeWork happened at one of their coolest Brooklyn rooftops! We had a perfect mix: a pocket show with tasting by a local spirit!
This is exactly the type of exclusive, small, private event we love to organize! There is nothing better than having a private pocket show paired with a delicious tasting by a Harlem-born brand!
So, we hosted another fantastic summer time event at the trendiest WeWork location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!
All the guests explored the best of what New York has to offer on the coolest rooftop today and with a flawless sunset.
To start, the night began with a unique tasting experience with the all natural, small batch Doc Hersons’ absinthes. They are a true Harlem-born brand that is recreating and teaching people that absinthe is a perfect spirit to drink with friends.
Plus, WeWork offered a variation of delicious empanadas not only for the meat eaters, but also for the vegetarians! What we can say about them? Well, they were simply divine!
Finally, all guests sat down and enjoyed the very talented duo, Connor and Lu, perform a private pocket show exclusively for them!
We had a great night, lots of fun and valuable networking between guests!
About Conner and Lu:
Luisa Justus, know as Lu is a sci-fi-loving Brazilian film geek turned “mad woman” in the New York advertising industry.
Connor is a long-haired grunge musician turned tech business guy (hence the inevitable haircut).
Even though they have secret identities – some may call them ‘day jobs’. Connor and Lu‘s true obsession lies in writing and playing music together.
About Doc Hersons:
Born in Harlem. Raised in Brooklyn. All natural. Small batch.
Founded in a Harlem basement in 2012, Doc Herson’s Natural Spirits is the 1st Absinthe Distillery in New York City.
With their impeccable taste and retro sensibilities, husband and wife team Kevin Herson and Stacey Luckow epitomize the creative era of pre ban Absinthe’s lusty atmosphere.
Transporting those whom imbibe on a journey back to the days of bohemian artistry and ambience.
