Name:Rum Bar

Description:
Hi-end lounge that specializes in rum drinks. Once a week they host "Tiki Tuesday" with tropical drink specials. Free "tiki" themed trinkets are also scattered across the bar (when I was there it was rubber duckies wearing Hawaiian shirts and teddy bears in grass skirts). More information can be found on their webpage:
http://www.rum-bar.com/

Very little in the way of Tiki decor or atmosphere. Drinks and food were fine. Tiki in name only.

I just came back from a conference in Philadelphia and I stopped by to check this bar out. They have a stack of the gray and red Drei Moai Bowls by Squid/Tiki Farm, but that's about it for actual Tiki decorations. However, they have an excellent sampling of rums. I went with a friend and we both had a shot of Kilo Kai rum. Then we tried their ginger daiquiri and a dark-n-stormy. All good and the bartender was very attentive. I didn't try their food, but we were on a bit of a pub crawl and this was just one of the stops along the way. Worth checking out, though.

visited Rum Bar this past weekend. no tikis to be found - but the cocktail list was decent. the zombie was more like the 70's version, but tasty. did not try the mai tai as it purported to contain pineapple juice. the painkiller was great, the rum punch #3 and the macadamia daiquiri are highly recommended. their dark and stormy looked good, but did not have one. despite online reviews to the contrary, the food was very good and complimented the cocktails well.

I'm finally traveling back to Philly next weekend, and was excited to go to the Rum Bar, after being told of it's wonderful selection by Martin...to find that it's closed.

I am saddened, as I had planned on trying the Black Tot.
