Irish pub in NYC named 'Best Bar in the World 2016'

Nobody does pubs quite like the Irish.

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog on Water St, Manhattan, has been named the world's best bar on The World's 50 Best Bars' list, produced by Drinks International.

Drinks International credit the bar with an "unwavering pursuit of drinking perfection." According to the list, the bar's "perfectionism is illustrated in their menu of 72 historically accurate cocktails."

In a report on the bar's achievement, Bloomberg was equally effusive in its praise of Muldoon and McGarry, the world's youngest winner of the the Bartender of the Year award.

Troy Patterson writes: "To shuffle across the sawdust of the Rabbit’s unpretentious downstairs taproom—or to sip cocktails in its deliciously pretentious upstairs parlour—is to refresh one’s understanding of hospitality."

The stated aim of the, which is owned by two Belfast men Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon, is to bring the Irish pub into the 21st century.

Dead Rabbit has previously won many accolades including Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Award: World’s Best Bar 2015, and the best bar in North America from Drinks International in both 2013 and 2014.

This place sounds like its worth a trip to the Big Apple in itself.
