A New York bar with a celebrated international reputation will make an appearance in London for one night.

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog will host a pop-up in the capital city as part of London Cocktail Week, giving Brits the opportunity to try the bar’s signature Irish coffee.

It will be the second time the bar has been in residency at the Sun Tavern, in Bethnal Green, where the bar made its UK debut for the annual festival last year.

Punters will also be able to try a new cocktail called the Lone Oak, concocted with green Chartreuse, whiskey, pistachio, curry leaf, lemon and Angostura bitters, at the 2 October event.

The Sun Tavern’s ‘Beer and a Bump’, a half pint followed by a shot of 12-year-old whiskey, will also be served by the bar in its takeover.

Award winner

Situated in the financial district of New York City, the Dead Rabbit opened as a modern Irish pub and restaurant in 2013.

It has collected numerous awards since, including winning the World’s 50 Best Bars prize for the Best Bar in North America four times and taking the title for the World’s Best Bar in 2016.

A serious fire caused the bar to close for a fortnight, pushing back expansion plans until the spring of next year. More than 100 firefighters responded to the July blaze, which the bar’s founders and managing partners Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry described as leaving the Dead Rabbit “a bit bruised perhaps, but unbowed”.
