Great rum drinks and tapas - definitely recommend

We came here for pre-dinner drinks and appetizers and ended up not eating dinner because the tapas plates were so delicious and filling. The vibe of the place was great - live music, relaxed atmosphere, seating upstairs and down, and great service. The rum and drink list is creative, extensive... read more

This place is cool. Home-made rum...!!! Appetizer of choice for us: Mediterranean finger foods, good stuff. The maharajas were seriously unique and tasty drinks... we each had one, then shared one.

Montanya is a great place to go for happy hour. They have delicious cocktails! Their food list is also quite tasty, but perhaps a little overpriced on some of the items. We were treated to a tour of the distillery upstairs, and the brewer was very personable. We aren't really rum drinkers, but this place is great.

We stopped in for a light snack and their tapas menu was perfect. The spinach and artichoke dip is outstanding.

My husband loves rum, and rum cocktails, so this was a must for us to try! And, we love supporting local businesses, breweries, wineries and distilleries. We stopped based on the multiple reviews, and we agree! Drinks are freshly made, "crisp" and just fantastic overall. These drinks are all made fresh in house with the freshest possible ingredients, from the... More

I stopped in here and sat at the bar for a bite to eat. I'm not much of a cocktail person, but decided to try a few after reading the descriptions. I really enjoyed the Thai Boxer. I also had several of the small plates, and found them to be very tasty and a pretty good value. The atmosphere was... More

OMG so great! This place is a "tasting room" for the run they make. Whatever. Best. Drinks. Ever. And best appetizers ever. Faborite drinks? The caldera and maharaja. Oh and the spicey something was good too! Skip the manhattan, it's good. But the other drinks are boutique, unique, and must be had! For apps, devil on horseback, get a few... More

I don't really like liquor, but this place was still fun. They offered great advice on cocktails and their approach. A good place to start an evening.

This place is awesome. We stopped in just to check it out, got our free rum tastings, then had to try one, two, okay a few different rum cocktails. We didn't try any of the food, but the free popcorn was great. The bartender was great, but her mixing skills were amazing. Four of us tried a total of 6... More
