Love the restaurant Tango?
Check out it’s sibling Rumba Rhum & Food, Seattle’s first rum bar located at 1112 Pike Street, on Capitol Hill right next door to Tango. It’s official opening took place just last week and already the rave reviews are flowing in. The new restaurant pairs rum-forward drinks such as daiquiris with Central/South American and Caribbean dishes such as empanadas, ceviche, and tacos. The decor and vibe feature old Havana details like leaf-shaped ceiling fans and amber wood shelves stocked with vintage accessories. Hard-to-find rum (Agricole, El Dorado, Lemonhart 151) is generously poured at the curved, bilevel bar.
You may enjoy a variety of tasty treats in cluding haved-ice daiquiris, fresh mojitos, baked empanadas (chicken, chorizo, vegetarian), Jamaican jerk pork shank with pineapple slaw, and smoked chicken wings in hibiscus marinade.
According to these folks, “Rumba is proud to have a crew of expert bartenders who have a passion for rum and have honed their craft at some of the top spots in Seattle. Rumba offers an wide array of island drinks including libations of Prohibition-era Havana, Tiki cocktails, Punches and Caribbean island classics. Rumba’s 12 foot arched, back-lit bar also holds over 200 rum selections for those looking for the pure rum sipping experience.
Sounds like it’s time for a cocktail!
