The Dead Rabbit 

Not only is the Dead Rabbit one of New York’s best Irish bars, it’s one of its best bars, period. With 1,180-plus Yelp recommendations and awarded titles including ‘World’s Best Bar’ and ‘Best Bar in North America,’ this FiDi destination is a worthy watering-hole pick any day of the year. Still, the Dead Rabbit’s Irish whiskey selection, smoked ham and Irish cheddar toasties, and Irish coffees taste particularly satisfying on St. Patrick’s Day.
