Using a new theme each month, some of New York’s finest actors and writers build roughly ten scenes that could legitimately happen in that bar, that night. Audience members grab a drink, find a seat and watch the stories unfold. With no “fourth wall”, OUR BAR is often described as a month’s worth of bar antics artfully shoved into one hour, and like any great night out on the town, each show is unique. The material you see at each OUR BAR lives and dies before your eyes.
The OUR BAR crew has offered up increasingly impressive shows every month since November 2009 thanks to the endless supply of stories from New York City’s ever amusing nightlife. Somehow the block of wood that resides between bartender and customer gives strangers permission to open up in surprising and incredible ways. It is this dynamic that is at the heart of every OUR BAR. Blending New Yorkers’ love of bar life, theater and tasty whiskeys, OUR BAR is carving out its own cult following.
OUR BAR is presented every first Wednesday of the month at 7pm & 9pm on the second floor of Failte Irish Whiskey Bar, 531 2nd Ave. between 29th and 30th.
