The Rum House is widely recognized as one of the best cocktail bars in New York City. The bar has a distinct downtown sensibility set against a classic New York backdrop. The Rum House is the perfect place for a nightcap, pre-theater drink or an evening of revelry in the heart of Times Square.

“The long, curving, copper-topped bar is the kind that invites committed drinking…there’s a seductive menu of classic and original cocktails, with a special focus on whiskey and rum drinks and, on weekends until 5 p.m., Bloody Marys. More important, there’s a fresh energy, drawing a relatively diverse crowd.”
