The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog x Governors Ball
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
What happens when you drop two Irishmen in FiDi and tell them to make magic? If the two men in question are Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon—the former cocktail maestro who has been named International Bartender of the Year, and the latter a connoisseur of ice whose former establishment has been named a World’s Best Cocktail Bar—they’ll do what they do best, and they’ll do it even better on this side of the Atlantic. Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog is the culmination of a lifetime of serious drinking knowledge, and it shows. The bar has won World’s Best Best bar not once, but twice, and its three distinct floors (a ground floor pub, second-floor cocktail parlor, and top floor private event space) offer different, yet equally inviting ways to experience Irish tradition and charm. Whether you grab a pint or a Perfect Manhattan, let the guys at Dead Rabbit treat you to a world-class time.
Once the Irish have shown you how to have a rollicking good time, take your new know how and pop across the water to Gov Ball, where Friday’s lineup includes Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Glitch Mob, and Tash Sultana, just to name a few. Whether you’re saucin’, swaggin’, or ballin’ (can you tell we’ve been listening to Post Malone on repeat?), this annual music festival on Randall’s Island will show you how New York does it better. Dust off your Coachella crop tops and catch Travis Scott, Halsey, Khalid, and Eminem on Days 2 and 3.
