Location Description:

That the Dead Rabbits were a mid-19th century gang of hooligans (Leo DiCaprio's posse in Gangs of New York, if you need a reference point) is no coincidence. This New York Irish-themed taproom and parlor evokes the glory of the Five Points splendidly. In fact you can often spot founder Sean Muldoon and bar manager Jack McGarry decked out in anachronistic suspenders and plaid. But the establishment is far from gimicky. It's craft cocktails and punches are made with real artistry, and are some of the city's most original recipes. Located in the lowest of lower Manhattan, the oldest and first-settled part of the city where all the train lines tap out before Brooklyn, it's a complementary addition to this historic district.
