Hit FiDi Bar the Dead Rabbit Adds 30 Cocktails and New Room
The Dead Rabbit debuts new cocktail parlor
Very critically acclaimed Financial District bar the Dead Rabbit keeps on growing. Following the addition of a taproom downstairs, the bar opened a new extension this week that accommodates 25 more people on its second floor at 30 Water St. The new parlor room comes at the same times as a new menu series for the entire bar — created by beverage director Jillian Vose — called “Darkland” and featuring dark themes in its branding and the cocktail names. There are 30 new cocktails on hand, including the “stun grenade,” made with Irish whiskey, a Cuban rum blend, sweet vermouth, carrot, pineapple, sumac, and tarragon. The new drink menu is available throughout the bar, and the new parlor room is open Thursday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
