The Dead Rabbit at Claridge’s


Voted No 1 at the World’s Best Bars 2016, New York’s celebrated Irish drinking tavern The Dead Rabbit is coming to London this summer at Claridge’s Bar for an exclusive week-long pop-up. The multi award-winning 19th-century-style bar will be authentically recreated and will be complete with ragtime piano playing and authentic New York-style service designed to bring Manhattan to the heart of Mayfair.

Originally the brainchild of Irishmen Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry, The Dead Rabbit is named after a notorious Irish street gang that patrolled Lower Manhattan during the mid-19th century. The story of gun-totin’ gang leader John Morissey is told through the bar’s graphic comic-style cocktail menu, which is also being replicated for the Claridge’s pop-up.

A place of pilgrimage for cocktail lovers, The Dead Rabbit occupies a landmark three-storey building in Lower Manhattan, dating back to 1828. The Claridge’s pop-up will recreate its second-floor ‘Parlor’, serving an edited choice of its signature cocktails and specialities from its hearty food menu.

The Dead Rabbit was voted No 1 at the World’s Best Bars 2016 and awarded World’s Best Cocktail Menu at the prestigious Tales of the Cocktail bartenders festival in 2015.

Serving Signature cocktails and food specialities, The Dead Rabbit pops up at Claridge’s from August 15-22, 2017. Click here for more information.
