Almost a year ago, popular Williamsburg bar Donna was forced to close due to an electrical fire. Now - they are back and stronger than ever. Tune in to a fun episode of The Speakeasy as Damon Boelte is joined by the crew at Donna who have brought a kegged cocktail to the studio with them. Yes, you read that right, they are pouring draft cocktails on-air in the studio! Learn about the advantages of cocktails on tap and why carbonation almost always makes a drink better. Hear why architecture is such an important component in bar design and find out how they are making craft cocktails more accessible for everybody. This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"There's a psychology to architecture. If you can tweak little tiny things it affects how people move in the space and how they enjoy themselves in it." [08:00]

"We take our beverage program really seriously but we want it to be fun and accessible. We want people to come in and get a drink quickly and party. That's what this draft cocktail program is all about." [25:00]
