They have happy hour six days a week, and late-night happy hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
From 4 to 7 p.m. Sundays through Fridays, you can partake in a spirited happy hour at Village Whiskey, Iron Chef Jose Garces’ casually cool restaurant at Revel Casino Hotel. Then, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, enjoy a late-night version from 9 to midnight. At both, you can take advantage of reduced prices on items such as oysters, cocktails such as the Philly Fish House Punch and the “city-wide” — a PBR with a shot of whiskey. Plus, they have special food items on their happy hour menu that don’t appear on their regular menu such as their crab cake, burger or pulled pork sliders and their famous fried pickles.
Whiskeys and bourbons and ryes, oh my!
Garces’ beverage of choice is whiskey — hence, the name of the place. So the bar is stocked with around 150 whiskies, bourbons and ryes. If you can’t decide on one, choose from one of three awesome flights — or, get creative and build-your-own flight. If you prefer your booze shaken in a cocktail, select from one of two menus: the “Prohibition” — which has time-honored classics such as an Old Fashioned or Whiskey Sour; or the “Repeal” — where you’ll find newer thirst-quenchers such as Boardwalk Sunrise and Speakeasy Lemonade. House Mixologist Theresa Zeits puts her own spin on classics such as the Sazerac and the Side Car. Zeits has even created her own recipe for bitters.
Pair a beer with a burger — it’s pure perfection!
Garces is all about sustainability and keeping things local. That’s why the craft beer list at Village Whiskey is comprised of brews found mostly regionally. You’ll find beers such as Victory and Weyerbacher (Pa.), Ithaca and Bluepoint Toasted (NY), and Smuttynose (N.H.). Any of these will pair to perfection with the mouth-watering Village Burger — made of four different beefs from a sustainable farm in Maine and ground on-premises — and duck fat fries with a side of Sly Fox Beer cheddar sauce.
Listen to live music by local and regional bands two nights a week.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Village Whiskey brings live music to the stage. In fact, they are one of the only places in A.C. to have live music on Tuesdays. Performed by local bands — as well as those from Philly and New York — you’ll hear anything from classic and alternative rock, to reggae and blues, to The Beatles and The Grateful Dead. Look for groups such as TriTide, Griz Trio, Soul Funk, Pepper and the All-Stars and the Chuck Boone Band.
Even brunch and dessert offer adult beverages.
Who doesn’t love brunch on the weekends? And you can fill your tummy to excess both Saturdays and Sundays with delectable items such as french toast, biscuits and grits. But it’s the Bloody Mary that will really get your day started. Crafted with applewood bacon-infused Jim Beam and a house-made Bloody Mary mix from scratch, the real delight comes from the oxymoronic crustacean topping — a jumbo shrimp. After your meal treat yourself to something super special — a frothy and delicious alcoholic milkshake.
