    Came here because it was voted best cocktail bar in the world. Did I think it was truly the best in the world? Maybe not. But was it the best $250 I've ever spent? Yes. Yes it was. Cosy and mysterious atmosphere, great drinks for prices that you'd expect from a place like this, and great servers. What more could you want?

    Small pub/cocktail bar that was once rated the best bar in the country and it definitely doesn't disappoint down to the saw dust spread across the floor. They have a vast whiskey selection as well as respectable beer choices including a beer made just for them. The food menu is always changing and every time I've been had been extremely good. And the bartenders are not only social and talkative but know how to make drinks. A must for visitors and residents of NYC alike.

    Quite simply, this bar surpassed my already high expectations. I work with a lot of bars in my job, I drink a lot of cocktails. I am also hugely cynical and jaded when it comes to ‘Best Bar’ lists. The mixed drinks on the second level, “The Parlour”, are easily the best cocktails I’ve ever had in my entire life. I’ve already apologised to my friends who own amazing cocktail bars around the world for this statement. Well-crafted, impeccably served and the menus, graphic novel themed, are just sheer brilliance. I’ve never sat in a bar and read through a menu whilst drinking a cocktail and struggling to devise what to order next. I did here. I’ll say it now...this is my favourite bar in the world. And I drink in a LOT of bars.

    Truly fantastic cocktails and environment. I brought two visiting friends there on a Friday night and it was the perfect mix of lively but not so crowded you can't breathe. Drinks are a little pricey, but it's the experience you're going for. I ordered the Strong Medicine and you'd be smart to do the same.

    This was my first time coming to the Dead Rabbit. First off I highly recommend this place if your into high end cocktails. They make some of the best I’ve ever had (on par with Barmini in Washington DC). The location itself is kinda hard to spot if you have never been there before, so keep a sharp eye out. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bartender was extremely knowledgeable and offers many different option, even ones that aren’t on the cocktail list. The cocktails are expensive however, $18 a drink. Lastly I gave 4/5 stars due to the food. I couldn’t order any “hot plates” due to a fire in the kitchen back in July (they are working to fix this ASAP). I got the roasted turkey sandwich which was nothing special and they house kettle chips were on the sweet side (yuck). Overall I really liked this place and would very much recommend and come back.

    Hands down best cocktail I've ever had in my life.. cocktails are very creative and interesting, with different levels of seriousness with flavor and alcohol. We were seated (it was around 5:30) after about 10 minutes of wait- although most of the settings were still empty.. we were told to hang out at the bar until the buzzer rights. Once seated, we were greeted with a sample cocktail in a small tea cup - sweet and refreshing. Overall experience was great and this will be my favorite go-to from now on.

    I loved this place. I visited with my partner after a tour of the statue of liberty. I knew it was in this area as it was in a must go to bar in a guide book we brought before we travelled. It's a small friendly place with lots of interesting photos and other memorabilia. Good selection of beers and the coffee was really good. Food was great, we both had a burger and it was one of the best we had. I would have liked to return to try other items on the menu. If you are in the area, drop into this place, you will not be disappointed!

    Went for a friend's birthday. It was fun! I liked the atmosphere of the place. They have good drinks and fun music playing. The place is tiny!!! We met with the owner and he was super nice!!

    Great bar, with a large array of Scotch's and Whiskeys. The cocktails we're good and the atmosphere was pretty chill. We only hung out downstairs and it was pretty tight squeeze. All in all had a great experience and definitely coming back to try the food that kept passing me by.

    The food was pretty good (although prices do reflect that!) - the starters and small plates especially were excellent, although the fish and chip batter was very thick and doughy, might have just been a bad batch but everything else was great. The cocktail menu is fantastic. Overall though the place does seem to be becoming a victim of its own success - we went on a weekday outside normal meal hours and it was PACKED. Barely room to move and just about squeezed in upstairs. Service was extremely slow (over 20 minutes even to take our drink order), though hard to blame the servers as they seem understaffed. I’m sure if less busy this would be a nice venue but needs more servers.
