Eats & Drinks
This 48-seat island-themed restaurant and lounge stocks over 80 types of rum, from your everyday Bacardi to the high-end Mount Gay Tri-Centennial, priced at $120 a shot. Owner/mixologist Adam Kanter’s carefully designed cocktail menu stretches the palate to include sweet and tart favorites like the Fuzzy Daiquiri and the Pomelo Blossom; as well as the more daring and spicy Chili Coriander and Creole Daiquiri. Not a rum enthusiast? Rum Bar’s highly trained bartenders will introduce you to the spirit in a way catered only to you. Amazing drink specials, such as daily happy hour [5-7pm], Mojito Mondays, Tiki Tuesdays, and Save the Daiquiri Wednesdays get the week off to an upbeat note. A tempting menu pivots on Caribbean influences, while staying grounded by fusing island flavors and American favorites. Popular picks include shrimp and scallop ceviche, jerk chicken quesadillas, and home-made tortilla chips with fresh guacamole.
The Rittenhouse Square restaurant transports guests to a tropical yet sophisticated setting. Rum Bar allows its patrons to feel like their dining on an island somewhere in the Caribbean. Inside, patrons can find exposed brick and a modern design as well as a bamboo-inspired bar and a pirate lounge
Philadelphia Magazine 1/3/12An indie Irish pub with a solid menu and real Irish people managing it and working the bar. Go if you want something to eat with all those drinks or just to get some work done (thanks to free wi-fi).
