Why locals love it

This old New York and Irish inspired pub is dedicated to hospitality and historically-accurate cocktails. The downstairs Taproom is more informal, offering lunch daily, craft beer and whiskeys, while the upstairs Parlor has a more speakeasy vibe.

Why you should visit it

The food is good (have the zucchini fritters), but the stand-outs here are the drinks. The bartenders are extremely talented and knowledgeable, deserving of the title "mixologists." Try one of their punches, or other drinks like Benicia Boy (like Irish Coffee), Byrrh Wine Daisy, and The Fugitive (served in a porcelain cup).

Special tip

Visit The Dead Rabbit on Sundays for traditional Irish music in the Taproom.

This place is pretty cool. It is small and they make their sour mix from scratch. If you have celiac or are gluten free then you can replace the whiskey with with rum and have a delicious rum sour. I suggest that you eat first because there are no gluten free food options and you will want more than one drink while hanging out in the low key atmosphere.

If the top rated cocktails in the world are your thing - head down to this FiDi Spot - the bar upstairs is legit
