Though it sits in the heart of the Financial District, the Dead Rabbit couldn't be farther from your average happy-hour hangout. The award-winning vintage cocktail bar (which was named the World’s Best by Forbes in 2016) on Water Street comprised a taproom on the lower level and an intimate parlor upstairs. The highly conceptual drinks menu resembles a graphic novel; paging through it is an experience in and of itself. If the options leave you overwhelmed, the expertly trained bartenders are happy to create a custom drink according to your preferences. Seats in the parlor must be reserved.
