The Dead Rabbit is a famous cocktail bar located on 30 Water St in New York and I was lucky enough to go there with my coworkers. We booked a table upstairs which means a bit more space. Trust me when I say that is a good thing because this place gets busy. Then we started to drink.
I tried two of their signature drinks, of which there are many, but I have to be honest when I say I didn’t enjoy them as much as I did when I switched over to Redbreast 12. They were interesting, but they were honestly just a bit too sweet and a bit too funky for me.
I may be too old for The Dead Rabbit, or maybe just too much of a whiskey snob. After the first two mixed drinks I changed over to neat Irish Whiskey before ending the night with Red Breast 12, which you can never go wrong with.
I had fun and enjoyed the huge selection of Irish Whiskey. So why did The Dead Rabbit score a 75/100? The fact that the mixed drinks were a bit too funky for me cost them points, as well as the cost. I know this is in Manhattan but I’m a country boy and the prices seemed astronomical to me.
The other factor that cost The Dead Rabbit some points was how busy it got. It is a popular bar, and once our private table expired we went downstairs to the main bar area. It was just a press of people. It is hard to enjoy a drink when every movement jostles you up against someone else.
