Manhattan was still reeling from Hurricane Sandy, especially the southern tip of the island, which had been battered by destructive high winds and corrosive flood waters. The Dead Rabbit was no exception—the establishment’s ancient building sits just a couple of blocks away from New York Harbor and was damaged in the storm. But despite these less than ideal conditions, the bar opened in February of that year and grew into a massive success within the Big Apple’s notoriously competitive market.
On this episode of Fix Me a Drink, hosts David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum are joined by Jack McGarry, the Dead Rabbit’s managing director and co-founder, to discuss the bar’s incredible first decade in business and how it has evolved along the way. The trio also talks about McGarry’s plans to expand, opening Dead Rabbit bars in cities across the country.
So pour yourself an Irish whiskey and listen to this new episode of Fix Me a Drink. Cheers!
