Destinations: Nitehawk Cinema's "Spirits, Dinner and a Movie" with the Dead Rabbit on August 7th

Our friends at award winning cocktail den The Dead Rabbit have team up with Nitehawk Cinema for the very first Spirits, Dinner and a Movie! The feature film will be Gangs of New York with food and cocktail parings throughout the Scorsese classic. This is a cannot miss event.

Here is the press release and Cocktail/Dinner menu:

Fresh on the heels of their three-time win at the 11th annual Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards (International Bartender of the Year, World’s Best Cocktail Menu and World’s Best New Cocktail Bar), The Dead Rabbit’s Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry will launch Nitehawk Cinema’s very first “Spirits, Dinner and a Movie” event on Wednesday, August 7th in Williamsburg.  Teaming up with the best bartenders in the city, this series is the newest of Nitehawk’s creative repertory programming, combining moviegoer’s favorite things: fantastic drinks, food, and film.

The first feature is Martin Scorsese’s 2002 fictional historical drama, Gangs of New York, which depicts the violent rise of gangland power in New York City. Larger than life, the film has it all: history, love, loyalty, revenge, and true O.G. gang violence. The best part? As with Nitehawk’s “Beer, Dinner and a Movie” and “Film Feast” series, the audience will be served each course during the specific moments inspired by the film.
