A definitive ranking of this year’s top places to consume alcohol just came out, courtesy of Drinks International, and a Manhattan bar sits atop the list, Bloomberg reports.

The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog, located in New York City's financial district, was praised for fusing "colorful historical references to the city’s 19th-century Water Street rough-neck pub set and Lower Broadway’s genteel cocktail imbibers in an atmosphere of Irish-American hospitality."
