Rum is generally the least pretentious of cocktails—its first association is usually the thought of a fruity cocktail enjoyed poolside rather than an upscale lounge drink poured with artful precision. Rare is the occasion when a person swishes rum around his or her mouth then comments on subtle flavor notes and length of aging.
Rum Bar embraces this attitude despite possessing everything needed to shed it—namely 200 varieties of rum and superb bartenders. Their choice to embrace the naturally festive atmosphere of rum was a smart one. The result is the best combination of lively atmosphere, sleek décor, and refreshing cocktails in Rittenhouse Square.
