The Whiskey Rebel team (previously known as Professor Thom’s) played under the name ’3 Fat 1 Skinny’ in 2006 and finished with a 9-3 record in the B1 Division of the Chelsea Piers Adult Roller Hockey program. They first played in the Manhattan Roller Hockey League as Organic Near You and were the winners of the inaugural league championship after finishing the Summer 2007 season with a 7-3 record. They finished the Fall 2008 regular season with an 8-2 record and a #3 seed in the playoffs. After posting a 6-3-1 regular season record they won the Spring 2009 League Championship in two straight games over the East End Terriers.

The Whiskey Rebel Bar & Lounge is located at 129 Lexington Avenue between 28th and 29th Streets in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan. Whiskey Rebel is part of a family of bars that includes Snafu and Whiskey Trader. Like its siblings, Rebel offers a comfortable space to grab a drink. If the unlimited popcorn is not enough for you, there are no problems with bringing in some Vindaloo from the Curry Hill area to supplement your night. Alluring bartenders draw you in, but it’s the happy hour specials that keep you warm through the night. As you enter the Deco-style mural catches your eye and to your right the rich mahogany bar beckons you. Bartenders aim to be accommodating and welcoming to the local work set that fills the joint on weekdays and the warm, mood lighting makes this a good spot to have a drink with a date. There are multiple TV screens to catch the games if you are so inclined and The Rebel also hosts a Monday trivia night every week for the nerd in all of us.
