    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.

    I'd heard the hype of The Dead Rabbit often being voted as one of the best bars in the world so I was curious to see what all the fuss was about. Having not yet visited every pub in the world yet (although I'm giving it a try)I can't vouch the accolades but what I will say is that it's well worth a visit if you're in the Wall Street area. It's quite a small establishment in three levels so you need to get there quick to avoid the rush. But it's reassuring to find a place untouched by corporatness. Is that even a word? I don't think it is but 'attentive staff' 'superb food' and 'great ambience' are words. There's millions of places who try to be the best but fail to get the mix spot on. It's hard being consistently but this place is giving it a go. The Dead Rabbits might have been the name of a gang that terrorised the neighbourhood but there's nothing scary about this place. Already mentioned the staff but it was reassuring to find a place where they seemed not only happy to work their but happy to serve you.

    That place is located on three floors. The first is a pub, the second is the dining place, the third is a cocktail bar.In the beginning we have tried visit a second floor.It was very tasty and friendly.We had a very good cocktails and food .Then we walked down to pub and finish our lunch some beer.Third floor didn't work at that day, and we couldn't try their cocktails.Very special thanks to stuff for their sociability, friendliness and positive!Good luck!

    A friend of ours recommended this historic Irish pub near the waterfront in Lower Manhattan. Although it was a rainy weeknight we made the effort. We arrived at about 8:00 to a full house but two stools at the bar opened up when we walked in the door. They had a great selection of drinks and seem to specialize in Irish whiskeys. The bartender (Melissa?) was really friendly, fast, and pretty. She seemed to handle the constant flow of drink orders without getting behind. She recommended some great whiskeys to me. We also met several locals who were really friendly and fun as well. This place was worth the train ride to get here!

    This place was recommended to me by a top mixologist from Nashville Tennessee who had journeyed here as part of his industry's pilgrimage. We were lucky to not have to wait long for the second floor cocktail area (I understand that waits can be long) but enjoyed our time with the extremely friendly and helpful front door host. The first floor and third floors of this circa 1800 building are more fluid as a pub and I wouldn't hesitate to go there if looking for a more simple drink. But for all the amazing choices, it was recommended to me to try the classic Irish Coffee. When the epicurean gods created this classic, it was the Dead Rabbits version they had in mind. Absolutely delicious-not too often in life can you experience perfection but this was one of them. My daughter has a splendid gin boutique cocktail whose name I don't remember but it was divinely delicious. We snacked on the fresh oyster special and a veggie appetizer both were wonderful and of the highest quality. Our neighbor table said the chicken pot pie was amazing and couldn't stop raving about it. Overall this is a awesome experience in old New York. I'd find my way to the Wall Street area for all of its treasures and finish the day with a visit here.

    Before going to New York I had heard of this tiny little bar hiding away far away from pretty much everything. I had gone in with high hopes and left pleasantly surprised even with my expectations, I recommend there signature beer I wasn't much of a beer guy but I have been converted.

    Would loved to have tried this place - went in just before noon on Labor Day and sat at far back bar. One bar tender on and not that busy at other end - she completely ignored us and walked past several times. Even after I asked if it was a full lunch service, nobody took our order or even said we will be right with you. Gave it 15-20 mins and left - that's all

    Having seen the many reviews of best bar in the world . When four girls from London hit NYC - it had to be the place to go . It was a lot smaller than I imagine but really enjoyed my visit here . The bar is full of photos of Irish actors , singers, presenters . I even found out that Sam Neill is of Northern Irish decent and there was I thinking he was from New Zealand. Though I didn't not try the cocktails - we did have a lovely bottle of prosecco and I ate one of the nicest burgers in my whole New York trip . Hope you guys come to London - as definitely will pay a visit .

    There is so much hype around this place and rightfully so. It's cosy, cool and well worth a visit. We only had cocktails here and yes, they are pricey like anywhere else but it doesn't matter when they are artfully crafted and you're in a place as neat as this. There is so much going on between the crowd, cool old photographs and Irish staples behind the bar. We loved our drinks, the atmosphere and cannot wait until next time!

    Made an effort to come to this bar as I had read some great things about it. In a nutshell awesome boozer and what pubs should be like stopped for a few pints and lunch had the pork sliders and burger and fries which where top quality pub grub. Loved the old Irish pub wanted to stay in there all afternoon. With the Sawdust on the floor and all the pictures on the ceiling was just great surroundings. The staff were fantastic and the lady behind the bar was awesome really friendly and pints and food out on the table before we knew it was an excellent lunch and when I'm back in NYC I'll be coming back for a visit. Best bar in New York hands down

    Lives up to the hype Small, looks nothing from the outside, but the second you walk in, and see and feel the wood chipping son the floor, you know you're in somewhere special We didn't eat, just a couple of cocktails and a couple of beers.. One of the very few bars in the world that you genuinely 'remember'. Brilliant

    3 floors of Irish Pub experience. Great drinks, friendly staff and good food make thus place very popular. Get there early or be willing to wait for a table. Highly recommended!

    Wondered what all the fuss was about when I saw the line of people outside early on a Wednesday evening! Went back 1130 am on the Friday and found out! Initially you think, 'Just an Irish pub' and then you realise that absolutely everything is spot-on from the sawdust on the floor to the friendliness of the staff. Not taken by their 'Dead Rabbit' cask ale, which is brown ale style, but the Bells Two Hearted IPA was spot on. And everybody's food looked fantastic! The guy next to me had the sausage roll, which was a perfect pile of mini rolls and dipping sauce. If I owned any other Irish bar (say, McGettigan's) and came here, within minutes I would be severely depressed ...

    My partner (who is from Belfast) had heard about this place and we came for cocktails one Saturday evening. Firstly, the place looks incredible - well designed, great decor and loads of old photos, memorabilia etc on the walls, with an extremely well-stocked bar! You can just tell a lot of thought has gone into it. We had a cocktail each which were amazing but a little on the expensive side, so switched to our default Guinness after that. Sadly I only got to drink half my cocktail anyway as the glass collector took it away while I was in the loo, thinking it was finished! Ah well...:( The Guinness is really good (my partner is the expert and he gave it the thumbs up). We moved from our seats to sit at the bar at one point as the place got busy really quickly and, being long and narrow, we were getting knocked around a bit! There's a DJ at the back of the bar playing some excellent music, and it's a real party atmosphere. It turned out my partner knew him - small world! We could have easily stayed all night, but unfortunately it was our last night in NYC and we had a flight the next day, but I can see this place being a regular spot for us on future trips. I haven't been to all the Irish bars in NYC, but I have a feeling this might be the best one, If you're looking for a great fun Irish bar, cocktails, a good pint of Guinness and (from what I hear) excellent food, I recommend making a beeline straight for this place.

    Usually when a bar is as hyped as this one is it never lives up to expectations. This definitely was the exception! The bar was great - loved the theme of loads of Irish/ Northern Irish photos and pictures on the walls. We were served by Annie ( from North Belfast) who was just great. The food was lovely, the cocktails looked good though we didn't have any and the Irish coffees topped off a memorable visit. Definitely go if you're in New York - it's down by Battery Park.

    We visited the Dead Rabbit for dinner after reading good reviews and because it was only a five minute walk from the excellent Wall Street Inn where we were staying. The restaurant/pub was on three levels with the small dining area being on the third level. The atmosphere was great and the restaurant section was crowed with women dressed as flappers and men in white suits, bow ties, and straw boater hats coming back from the New York jazz party on Governor's Island. Although the restaurant was small, we got a table with little problem, and enjoyed the old wooden panel and ceiling decor, and the lively atmosphere. The food was basic but excellent and tasty. Highly recommended for a 'different' dinner out.

    Stopped in on a recent trip to NYC. Service was friendly and professional and the full Irish breakfast was to die for. I know the place is famous for its drinks but I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a spot of food.

    During our one week trip to NY in July we went to The Dead Rabbit twice. We read about the bar back home in Sweden since there is a woman from Sweden working there. Cant wait til next time when we will be back in NY to visit The Dead Rabbit again. Thank you Annie the bartender, you did a great job with our drinks and they were so good. She is so nice and we talked a lot. The place is so nice, great atmosphere, the food is very good as well. We hade a few drinks and before we left the gave us Irish Coffee and shots for free! The bar is great, don't miss it!
