Worlds 50 Best Bars of 2016

1. The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, New York

Located in New York’s financial district this two-story Irish-American bar draws its name from the tale of John Morrissey, the notorious leader of the Dead Rabbit Gang in the mid-1800s. In addition, the Dead Rabbit boasts a voluminous menu of 72 “historically accurate” cocktails and delectable food offerings to appease locals and tourists alike.

2. American Bar, London

American Bar is a British institution that has been serving classy drinks for 125 years now. But don’t think this long standing destination is a relic that relies on its history to stay afloat, as the American Bar is always looking for ways to innovate as it routinely changes the menu to match the times and the pace of the city.
