Voted the World's Best Bar in 2015 and 2016, New York’s The Dead Rabbit (named after an 1850s Irish-American street gang that presided over Manhattan), is taking over Claridge’s Bar in Mayfair, London.
At home in Manhattan, The Dead Rabbit occupies a three-story building from 1828; the drinking den combines a traditional Irish pub with a cocktail bar. From August 15-22, Claridge’s will recreate the bar’s second-floor Parlour, including all the important details like ragtime piano playing in the background, whiskey from their private collection (the biggest in America), and 12 signature Dead Rabbit cocktails. The bar will also serve Guinness and quintessential menu items like lobster deviled eggs, lamb shepherd’s pie, and more.
Claridge’s is a name in itself, hosting the first-ever Noma pop-up in 2012, and the restaurant at the iconic 5-star hotel was formerly helmed by chef superstar Gordon Ramsay.
Reservations for The Dead Rabbit pop-up at Claridge’s have closed, but the owners invite you to grab a drink in the taproom and kill time while you wait for a table.
