The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog has finally done it: It is officially the world’s best bar.
After two years staying steadily at No. 2, the famed bar in New York’s Financial District has won the top spot at Drinks International’s annual competition—The World’s 50 Best Bars.
Belfast-natives Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon worked together at The Merchant Hotel Belfast, before famously relocating to New York to establish the award-winning and critically acclaimed Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog.
Today, the duo wrote this heart-warming message on their Facebook page which gained over 3.5K Likes in just 14 hours:
“Raise a glass, Belfast. This one is for you. This is for every bartender, in every town, who thinks he can’t play with the big boys, just by virtue of where he or she is from.
“This is for the outcasts, the underdogs and the no-hopers. This is for The Dead Rabbits!
“WORLD’S NUMBER ONE!!!”
