We stumbled upon this beautiful bar after coming out of a comedy club in Times Square. It was a Sunday night so most places were closed but a quick Google search let us know that The Rum House was open until 4am and even had...live music! We made it in time for the last set and the music was fantastic. We had old fashioneds and rum & pineapples and were not disappointed. The rum selection was unbelievable, although of course being in the US there were no Cuban rums which bummed me out, but not the bar's fault! We ordered a bowl of olives which were delicious, a nice option! Being Canadians who love Cuba, we were very pleased with this find. The next time we're in NYC we will be back!More

This was by far the BEST bar we visited while in New York. The entertainment on the evening we were there was a jazz band and they were amazing and added to the atmosphere of the bar. The drinks are average price for Times Square...(expect to pay anything between $8-$12 for a drink). The night we were there was incredibly busy so I would recommend getting there early so that you can get a seat. This typical New York bar really added to the whole experience of our trip and we would recommend to anyone who is staying local to Times Square!More

We go here every time we are in New York. They have a very lengthy rum menu. The nightly entertainment is great.

Adjacent to the Hotel Edison on 47th St, this small, dark-paneled bar should be a quiet, romantic retreat -- but forget that. Perhaps it's so on weekdays, but in weekend nights it is packed with all seats taken and many standing, with no room to...mill around. Both weekend nights we stopped in but the music was loud and meaningful conversation was difficult. Well named, though, with a vast array of quality rums and rum-based drinks.More

We visited in December after we had read really good reviews about it. The barman was extremely rude after we informed him that the table we were sitting at was actually broken, the wooden top was completely lose and could have fallen on someone. He...told us that that was not his problem. We actually removed the top off the table and put it on the ground as it could have fallen at any moment seriously injuring someone. He also refused to serve one of our party who is 53 years old as she did not have I.D, I do understand the requirement for I.D but I think some common sense should be used when you can someone is clearly 30 years older than 21. We left without getting a drink, really disappointing.More

Popped in just for drinks before going to see a show on Broadway. It was happy hour too, so a beer was $5, certainly the cheapest I'd had in New York. Friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere. The bar is connected to a hotel, so...a bit of a trek to the toilets, but would certainly go back here.More
