Here's a look at the first and second floors of Dead Rabbit, a stylish new pub on Water Street in the Financial District. The two big players here are Sean Muldoon, who previously worked at The Merchant Hotel in Belfast, and Jack McGarry, who tended bar at the London location of Milk & Honey. Muldoon and McGarry are both very respected in the cocktail community, and the bar has already received heaps of press in anticipation of its opening.
The beverage list includes classic cocktails, bottled punches, six types of highballs, "pop-inns," wine, beer, and many variety of whiskey. The food menu features raw bar items, soups, salads, fish & chips, stews, a burger, and meat pies. Dead Rabbit also has a "grocery" with British goods to take home.
The team is just waiting for the gas to get turned on, but everything else is ready to go. Dead Rabbit will hopefully open later this week.
