Paris-St Germain and the Latin Quarter
May 11, 2018
La Rhumerie, as you may well have gathered, specialises in all things rum. This historic Left Bank bar dates back to the 1930s, when it was created by Joseph Louville, and his passion for all things rum has been continued. The place still looks much as it did. It’s fairly basic but that’s part of its charm. The nice, light room has raw terracotta walls and is decked out in a lot of wicker. But it’s the rums you come here for. The collection is huge. They have a vast array to choose from, both small batch and premium brands. Tasting flights are available and they also boast a huge selection of rum-based cocktails to explore. There are mojitos of every conceivable colour and flavour, daiquiris and zombies, coladas and mai tai’s, punches and warm rum drinks for cold nights. They also serve a selection of Caribbean snacks to pair with your drinks, fish patties and plantain chips, Caribbean codfish fritters and Creole platters. Their Creole brunch dishes are also worth checking out and we’re betting their rum baba will be a good one. The bar tenders are on hand to advise and guide you through the drinks list and the place has a warm and lively atmosphere.
