This Irish bar in New York was named the best in the world (again) - here's what it's like inside


She sure is beautiful.

LAST YEAR, THE Dead Rabbit Irish bar in New York won a prestigious award for being the World’s Best Bar, as you do.

And this week it was announced that they had topped the World’s 50 Best Bars list too - given out annually by Drinks International Magazine.

Belfast natives Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon set the bar up in Manhattan in 2013, and it’s been going very well

As the pair told last year, it’s an Irish “cocktail pub” – but strives to be very different from the clichéd Irish pub abroad:

The Dead Rabbit is an amalgamation of our favourite bars in Belfast - the Cocktail Bar in the Merchant Hotel and pubs like the Duke of York. [We wanted to bring] that unbelievable hospitality, the world class service, and the warmth of Irish pubs.

Upstairs is The Parlour – where 72 different cocktails are served in absolute splendour

Today's forecast. ☀️🍸🍻🍹🍾

And downstairs is the Taproom, more like a proper old school pub – filled with craft beers and whiskeys

So much good whiskey

Too much of anything is bad but too much of Irish Whiskey is barely enough.

They do a full Irish, of course

And all sorts of creative cocktails

They even have mugs hanging up that would make your mam proud

She sure is purty.

They have the odd interesting artifact on the walls, too

Sure the best pub in the world has sawdust on the floor
