    One of the best cocktail bars in the world. Not a go crazy place, but a place to go with a few people to try the drinks downtown.

    Though it sits in the heart of the Financial District, Dead Rabbit couldn't be farther from the average happy-hour hangout. The award-winning vintage cocktail bar on Water Street is comprised of a taproom on the lower level and an intimate parlor upstairs. The highly conceptual drinks menu resembles a graphic novel; paging through it is an experience in and of itself.

    One of the best places I've been to this year. It was my pick for BRIG. Loved every bit : buzzer to alert you of an open table, creative and inspiring menu, free sample of house punch to start the night, and a delightfully charming atmosphere.

    While not a traditional speakeasy (more of an old-time pub), they make excellent, excellent 19th-century drinks (they focus heavily on dark liquors). The darkwood paneling and staff dressed in 19th century outfits provide an authentic atmosphere.

    *New favorite alert* Badass lady bartenders (they commit to memory the recipes for all 72 finely crafted cocktails on the menu), a throbbing rock n roll soundtrack, lobster deviled eggs + a New Orleans style cocktail named Frenchmen Street

    Off the beaten path but worth the trip, everyone is welcome and The Dead Rabbit has something for everyone. On the 1st floor you'll find the tap room while the 2nd floor houses the cocktail lounge. Make sure to come during happy hour for $1 oysters.

    The rigorously historical menu spans punches, absinthe, nogs, slings, smashes, and more, each dutifully footnoted, thoughtfully prepared, and—most significantly—damn delicious.

    Went here on our visit to new york on our first day in afternoon as we heard about good reviews and we from belfast to took us ages to find it well sorry we did find it,it a lovely looking bar, seen one of the owners on way in very friendly was going for a run. Once in we found the girl behind bar very unfriendly tried to talk to her but did not want to no, we have been in loads of bars in new york and we always find them very friendly very disappointed with this bar we would have went back that night and had dinner therei would not recommend to anyone we know going over

    Gorgeous space, lovely fittings and great ambience, perfect for drinks in the evening and they have a great extensive cocktail lists. The food is good not great, only reason i didn't put 5 star, but it is great hearty comfort food, would definitely be back, probably just for drinks though!

    I was there with my friends on Monday after work (March 2017) and already in 20min from our arrival I noticed that my purse that was next to me all the time was stolen. This was an expensive Furla leather bag that had a Macbook Air, a Salvatore Ferragamo wallet, 5 credit cards, cash, IDs and other personal items. The personnel wasn't helpful at all and even said that I should better try to remember if I came with any purse at all that sounds very inadequate. I called the police and when they arrived and asked the manager to get the access to the surveillance video, she said she doesn't know the password to the computer. The police filed a report and left without getting any video. I will never go there again and will never recommend to anybody. It was totally not worth visiting this bar that is absolutely overrated with my total estimated loss of 2,500$ as reported with the police.

    Great place food was good and lots of history loved it. Staff were very friendly and although busy still had time to talk to you and take pictures. Food was lovely and fresh and good sized portions. Different beers were good too. Definitely go back again. Deb and Billy. Manchester.

    I have been here twice now. On the first visit (as we are also from Belfast) we got to meet the owners Sean and Jack. They have created a truly refreshing bar that has both Irish authenticities in a beautiful modern setting whilst retaining its charm. The very menus, story and comic graphics associated with a range of cocktails is well beyond anything I have seen before. I have experienced their cocktails many years ago from when they worked together in the Merchant and to see and taste what they have achieved makes me proud to be from Belfast. The staff are very friendly, their knowledge and ability to retain information including everything we ordered without writing it down was impressive. I was also able to ask about specific cocktails I had seen online and was automatically given information and detail including further suggestions. After cocktails, beautiful food and Irish coffees we were on our merry way. I cant imagine any trip to New York would exclude this bar. Looking forward to my next visit.

    5-10 minutes walk from Wall Street and Battery Park. Nice atmosphere, a good selection of beers and a huge selection of Irish whiskies. Staff were friendly and we got a free mini Irish coffee for visiting from Ireland. Definitely pop in if you are in the downtown area.

    This bar is set in a historic building in downtown Manhattan. One of the things that set this place apart from other area pubs/bars is that it is set on three levels of the building. On the ground floor is the more relaxed pub. At the top of the stairs is another room with table seating, and a small bar. But the real gem, is in the middle of the staircase - a speakeasy like bar that in my opinion was the best of them all. Entrance into this area is strictly controlled in an effort to keep it comfortable, and not crowded, and it works. The drink menu is vast and interesting, the staff delightful, and I, for one, can't wait to go back.

    What an incredible bar ! The best compliment I can pay it is really replicates the great Dublin bars like mulligans etc. The range of drinks is incredible I had a lovely Brooklyn Ale and my wife had prosecco and a cocktail. We had beautiful food she had fish and chips and I had the burger both really good. We than had the apple pie to finish off which was a lovely treat. The atmosphere was great the staff were very friendly and chatty and with a great service. We were told how welcome we were and how much they appreciate Irish visitors and it's Irish owned. The bill was very reasonable considering the location of the bar. Only we had tickets to a show booked we would have stayed a lot longer. Highly highly recommended .

    This bar is one of a kind. The menu is a comic book, the cocktails are mixed to perfection, the waiting staff are fantastic, and the venue is cosy. I highly recommend this bar. Make sure you put your name down to get to the second level ;)

    My husband and I have been here twice now and we walked away satisfied and delighted both times. It's the type of place that you want to continue ordering more drinks just to see what they're like. Then, when you leave, you want to tell all of your friends about it and hear about what drinks they chose. The Dead Rabbit has something for everyone, whether you prefer a classic mixed drink or one fancied with bitters (there has to be at least 60 bottles at the bar), fruit and spices, you'll definitely leave wanting more and probably planning your next visit!

    An absolute gem of a bar which is not to be missed. Old and quaint and takes you back in time. Easily accessible and is opposite the Staten Island ferry terminal. Dream real history in this building as it was built, as was the rest of the block in the 1700's. This bar was also used in some of the filming of 'The Gangs of New York'. Take a well earned refreshment break in here. You will love it.

    Came here obviously looking to check out the 'best pub in the world'. Pub itself was pretty cool and cocktails were delicious, always gonna be hard to live up to that standard obviously! sat on third floor for food. I ordered the corned beer and it was absolutely delicious. Staff however weren't very nice and at times incompetent. For instance there were 6 of us and we ordered two bottles of wine. They only brought 5 glasses as they said there were no clean ones. After 5 mins of waiting we inquired about the 6th glass. They said they were still trying to get a clean one. This went on for longer than you would believe. They eventually brought a glass when the wine was nearly gone and we had recycled a water glass to use anyway. Bizarre.
