A quaint but convivial Irish bar divided into a sawdust-strewn taproom and upstairs parlour, the former opening at 11am but the latter not open until 5pm. Unusually, the bar also features a ‘nano’ grocery selling items from Ireland and the UK. There are 11 taps, 8 of which offer craft beers, plus a cask-conditioned ale. Irish-American food is served, note no reservations. The curious name is taken from the mid 19th century Irish immigrant street gang, The Dead Rabbits, who frequently clashed with Protestant gangs who bitterly resented the million or so newly arrived Catholic immigrants who had been escaping the Irish potato famine.
