Your boozy bucket list to the world's best bars. 

October 06, 2016

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, where visitors get a creative twist on both the Irish pub experience and what you’d expect at an upscale cocktail bar, just took the number one spot at this year’s World’s 50 Best Bars list.

Curated by more than 400 specialists in the drink industry and coordinated by Drinks International, the list highlights the top watering holes around the globe, spanning 26 cities from London to Tokyo.

The Dead Rabbit jumped up one spot from its second place position last year.

Inside the top bar, visitors will find a ground-floor taproom with a selection of craft beers, bottled punches, and global whiskeys, while the upstairs has a parlor serving what the bar calls 72 “historically-accurate” cocktails.
