A Look Inside Thalia Hall with Martin Van Ruin

Our friends in the folk-rock band Martin Van Ruin stopped by Thalia Hall in Pilsen to play some songs a few weeks ago and we were lucky enough to get some video footage of their performance… Sure looks pretty in there. It’ll look even better when we fill that room with more people. Take a peek for yourself.

Photos: Thalia Hall Warming Party

Jeez, my head hurts a bit (but in a good way). How great Thalia Hall looks with close to 400 friends and folks basking in the glow. A lobster roll and a nice glass of beer sure doesn’t suck, too – it’s the opposite of suck, really. Numerous glasses of punch put it over the top. For all of you who attended, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your warm praises are music to our ears. We are finishing stuff up getting ready to open our doors to the public on the 28th. Hope to see you soon. – Bruce Finkelman (head cheese)

This is how punch is made…

As you may have noticed, we’ve been featuring specialty punches for sale – and drink – at the Empty Bottle over the past several months. Earlier this month, we made a video of punch master Will Duncan brewing a batch of fresh punch over at Thalia Hall, the new multi-purpose property in Pilsen being opened by our head honcho, Mr. Bruce Finkelman (and others). Punch House, located in the basement of Thalia Hall, will specialize in these delicious concoctions, offering an array that will be available by the glass, carafe, or bowl, as well as on tap in a carbonated form.

Our main man Nick Brazinsky shot and created this video that gives viewers insight into how much goes into making punch. See if you can follow all the steps and be sure to come by on September 17th when Punch House & Dusek’s both officially open! See you here.
