It’s Official: The Best Bar In The World Is In NYC

Drinks International just released its annual ranking of the world’s 50 best bars and NYC tops the list. Not only did we take first place, we have 4 bars in the top 10!

First place went to Water Street’s “Dead Rabbit” (“The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog”), named after a gang of Irish immigrants from downtown Manhattan’s Five Points neighborhood. The bar’s historic focus helped it clinch the top spot, as Drinks International say’s on their website:

“But the Dead Rabbit is more than the sum of its liquid parts, fusing as it does colorful historical references to the city’s 19th-century Water Street rough-neck pub set and Lower Broadway’s genteel cocktail imbibers in an atmosphere of Irish-American hospitality.”

What if late 1800s Irish pub culture isn’t your thing? Well, check out Attaboy, Employees Only or Nomad Bar in the city for more world class drinking. Here is the full top 10:

1. The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog, New York

2. American Bar, London

3. Dandelyan, London

4. Connaught Bar, London
