Rum rules at Rumba. This Melrose Corridor bar boasts an impressive collection of over 400 rums from all around the world. Inside the decor is sunny and fun with bright blue leather chairs and a subtle tropical vibe (a kitsch 'beach' mural, a wall-mounted marlin, nautical memorabilia on the dark wood bookshelves), the perfect backdrop to an evening spent exploring different rum-based cocktails. The drinks menu includes four different twists on the classic Daiquiri as well as more Martinique inspired drinks like the Ti' punch. The food menu covers Central/South America and the Caribbean with dishes such as empanadas, ceviche, and tacos. The atmosphere is as lively as the décor.
