Who would have thought that a bar in an alley can be so much fun? This great bar has awesome drinks and ice cold beer at a good price. The service is great from bartender Doug, and he and Trish keep you entertained with their silly hats and sunglasses. If you are ever downtown along waterfront, stop down the alley and quench your thirst!

Thank you for visiting us at Rum Island Pub and for your kind words! The xxRIPxx is one of signature drinks with 5 flavors of rum and homemade fruit punch. We enjoy running our fun little informal Husband Day Care... keeping them hydrated while the rest of the family shops!

Went to rum island pub last Sunday - awesome to have pussers rum in my painkiller and Jamie made sure I knew. Her and Paul were a riot and made the stop fun and exciting. Those two are great for business. Great little spot for day drinking. If they had a tv we would have stayed all day to watch the game- go broncos!
