The Dead Rabbit, a mid-19th century style Irish drinking tavern based in New York, will be making its first appearance in London this summer with an exclusive week-long pop-up at Claridge's Bar in Mayfair. 

The brainchild of Irishmen Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry, The Dead Rabbit was voted number one on the World's Best Bars 2016, and also won the title of 'World's Best Bar' and 'World's Best Cocktail Menu' at the bartenders festival, Tales of the Cocktail, in 2015. The bar is named after a notorious Irish street gang that controlled much of lower Manhattan during the mid 19-century, with the story of gang leader John Morrissey told through its graphic comic-style cocktail menu. 

The Dead Rabbit pop-up at Claridges's Bar, from August 15-22, 2017, will recreate the second floor 'Parlor', serving many of their innovative cocktails including Irish Coffee and Psycho Killer, plus specialties from their food menu such as lobster deviled eggs and The Irish lamb stew. Essential atmospheric elements of The Dead Rabbit, including the ragtime piano playing, the welcome drink, comic book cocktail menu and New York Style service from beverage director Jillian Vose, will all work to create a little bit of Manhattan in Mayfair.
