The Dead RabbitNew York City, USA
Named after one of the most fierce gangs in New York City, The Dead Rabbit is as notorious as its historic moniker. Set in Manhattan’s Financial District, the bar – created by Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon, alumni of Belfast’s much-lauded Merchant Hotel – has featured on ‘World’s Best’ lists since opening in 2013, finally taking out World’s Best Bar in 2016. Sawdust-sprinkled floors, leather furnishings and unpretentious service infuse the vintage venue with an ambient atmosphere across its three levels. There’s the Taproom, pouring 145 varieties of Irish whiskey (the largest selection in the USA); the Parlour, featuring a graphic novel-like cocktail menu; and the Occasional, a private function room, plus with traditional Irish fare served across all floors.
