The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog just took the No. 1 spot on the World's 50 Best Bars list from Drinks International magazine.

The Irish-American tavern, located just minutes from Wall Street, is one of the best-kept secrets of business folk working in New York City's Financial District. It also draws a regular crowd of Irish tourists, thanks to the pub's 145 varieties of Irish whiskey.

You won't find a neon Guinness sign or shamrocks in the window. The Dead Rabbit, which Business Insider has named the best bar in America two years in a row, was founded by two friends who emigrated from Belfast, Northern Ireland, with dreams of opening a pub.

Take a look inside to see why The Dead Rabbit is the best place to grab a drink.
