The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog embodies the conviviality of Old New York and the Irish-American tradition.

Our ground-floor Taproom offers an informal setting for the enjoyment of craft beer, bottled punch, and whiskeys of the world, with lunch served daily.

Upstairs, our sumptuous Parlor focuses on small plates, communal punch, and 72 historically-accurate cocktails dreamed up by the nineteenth century’s most celebrated bartenders.

The Dead Rabbit is dedicated to advancing the art and practice of hospitality, as it was understood then and as it is understood now, for all residents of and visitors to this great metropolis.

A cocktail at the Dead Rabbit

Purveyor ) Fine Drinks

Drinking! We admire it. It is a fine invention, and we have tried in our own way to make innovations upon it. At The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, you can find the classics. But you can also find drinks we have restored from unfortunate neglect by history. And by “find,” of course we mean “drink.”

Our Taproom features our own bottled punches and special cocktail and highball menus. The Parlor is our second-story cathedral to the mixed beverage, with our own reformations of the finest exemplars of the true Golden Age of American Drinking (1850 - 1900).

Oysters at the Dead Rabbit

Food Served Daily

We recognize that drinkers must also occasionally eat. Toward this end, The Dead Rabbit has assembled a menu featuring Irish-British traditional fare, Continental specialties like homemade pâtés, and the raw bar you’d expect at a seafront saloon.

We offer a full lunch daily in our downstairs Taproom, and small plates all day and night in both the Taproom and upstairs Parlor.

Weekdays between 4 and 5 p.m. in the Taproom we offer a free snack, your choice of boiled egg, fried clam, or fried oyster, with every liquor purchase.
