The men behind the best bar in the world are coming home.
An Irish bar in New York named as the best bar in the world last year is coming to Dublin for its first ever residency on Irish soil later this month.
A team from the Dead Rabbit, the winner of a number prestigious awards, including number one on a Drinks International list of the world’s 50 best bars in 2016, will set up shop at The Sidecar at the Westbury from Thursday, September 28 to Monday, October 2.
For five days, an innovative cocktail list created by Beverage Director Jillian Vose and a pub grub food menu will be on offer at The Sidecar, promising to transport visitors back in time and showcase the escapades of pre-prohibition in the 1850s merged with the whirlwind glitz and glamour of a 1930s party.
Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry, the Belfast natives who established the bar in New York City, will bring the atmosphere of The Dead Rabbit’s renowned second-floor New York ‘Parlor’ to Dublin and will be shaking up some of their most popular cocktails for hotel guests and locals alike.
Those cocktails include the ‘Spell Spoke’; Slane Irish Whiskey, Hibiscus, Kaffir Lime Leaf, Ginger, Lime, Chamomile and Citrus Bitters, the ‘Eye Candy’; Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey, Peach, Fig, Cinnamon, Lemon, Chamomile and Black Cardamon and the ‘Heretic’; Bombay Dry Gin, Mezcal, Elderflower, Pine and Muscat.
The bar bites menu, meanwhile, will include Carlingford Lough Rock Oysters served with lemon, tabasco and mignonette, a traditional Cheese & Ham Toastie with Irish Cheddar and tomato jam and The Dead Rabbit Burger with John Stone Irish Beef, bacon, Irish cheddar, wild mushroom and chips.
Commenting on their impending arrival, the Dead Rabbit’s Founder, Sean Muldoon said: “This is the first time we’ve done an event of this scale in Ireland. It’s great to be coming home and we’re looking forward to bringing The Dead Rabbit to Dublin.”
Sean’s partner and cocktail virtuoso, Jack McGarry, said: “The Dead Rabbit is an Irish Pub so having it in Ireland is going to be special. We’re excited to see what The Westbury team have put together”.
