  • London’s Claridge’s is getting a dose of classic New York City grit with a weeklong pop-up of Manhattan’s beloved Dead Rabbit. The award-winning bar — which claimed the number one spot on last year’s World’s 50 Best Bars list — will be serving up its signature cocktails and small bites at the Claridge’s bar from August 15­ through 22.

    The brainchild of Irishmen Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry, the Dead Rabbit’s three-story New York City flagship has become a must-hit hot spot for cocktail aficionados around the world, thanks to its raucous 19th-century tavern atmosphere and expertly crafted tipples. The Claridge’s pop-up will re-create the bar’s second-floor parlour-style lounge, complete with period furnishings and ragtime piano playing. The pop-up will also remain true to the Dead Rabbit’s signature service and style, greeting guests with a welcome drink before sitting them down to peruse a modified version of the original’s comic book–style menu, which depicts the bloody history of the bar’s namesake Dead Rabbit gang, a criminal troupe that controlled Lower Manhattan during the mid-19th century.

    Food specialties like lobster deviled eggs and Irish lamb stew will also be available.
