The Dead Rabbit

The Dead Rabbit is an Irish-American bar located near Wall Street in New York City.

This amazing tavern has been named the best bar in the WORLD by Drinks International magazine.

The World’s 50 Best Bars writes “the Dead Rabbit is more than the sum of its liquid parts"

"Fusing as it does colourful historical references to the city’s 19th-century Water Street rough-neck pub set and Lower Broadway’s genteel cocktail imbibers in an atmosphere of Irish-American hospitality” the article continues. 

Sean Muldoon, who co-owns the joint with fellow Irishman Jack McGarry, said “I just want to be the best!”

The Dead Rabbit takes its theme from the Irish who settled in New York in the 1800s and is named after an Irish gang. 

The bar's cocktail menu chronicles the life of the leader of the Dead Rabit's gang, and the 72 cocktails listed are "sectioned based on their flavour profile to represent the eight stages of his life."

The ground floor of the bar is home to an informal pub that serves craft beer, bottled punch and 145 varieties of Irish whiskey. Upstairs is the Parlour, where small snacks are served all day.

We have to admit, it looks completely fabulous! 

Congrats to the winners! 


A New York bar run by two Irish men has officially been awarded the world’s best bar.

Jack McGarry and Sean Mulddon from Belfast run the Dead Rabbit bar on Water Street in New York’s Financial District and have been since the bar opened in 2013.

And this week they have received the ultimate honour by being awarded the highly prestigious Spirited Award for the world’s best bar.

But this is by no means the first award for the Irish duo. They also won the world’s best bar and best cocktail menu this year, to go along with last year’s awards for best American cocktail bar and best drinks selection in 2014.

In 2013 the Dead Rabbit won the world’s best new cocktail bar and best cocktail menu, while Sean McGarry took home the international bartender of the year award.

The guys thanked everyone for their support saying, “This is the culmination of all the work that so many have participated in. Our thanks go out to everyone in our community who has made this possible.”

Safe to say we know where the first place we’ll be going on the next trip to New York is!
