Nice spot I think the neighborhood likes. My husband and I stop there after having dinner and cocktails at two other places, so we wanted dessert and a rum cocktail. The seating was definitely inviting and we noticed what we thought were several neighborhood people...More

Awesome spot! A highlight of our trip. Owner was on hand to discuss rum options to rum fans and people who don’t usually drink it. Super knowledgeable with a friendly and no pressure approach. We will be back.

Small quaint Caribbean style bar and restaurant on East Bay Street near the marketplace specializing in rum flavored cocktails. Rum from all over makes for a unique tasting experience. Small plates are terrific especially empanadas, cod balls and jerk chicken. Say hello to Vincent for...More

We went here because one member of our party is a big fan of rum bars drinks and this place seemed to fit the bill. The atmosphere was very relaxed and cool. Not pretentious at all. The drink menu does rely (unsurprisingly!) on rum. The...More
