Gone were the days when bars are only serving Mojito and Pina Colada. When it comes to cocktails with rum, my friends and I tend to be a lil’ adventurous. We have tried almost everything there is in the bars that we frequent; as the selections are limited. Thankfully, we stumbled upon The Rum Bar KL’s Facebook page and decided to give it a try! A simple search over the Internet led us to some articles that have been written by the prominent lifestyle publications such as Time Out KL and EatDrinkKL. We then decided to drive to the heart of the city and give it a shot. The parking around the area might be a challenge if one doesn’t know how. So we ring up the outlet and they were helpful to share with us where to park prior to making our way to the rum cocktail bar in KL. We parked our car at the hotel nearby (Soleil Hotel), which is just about 2 minutes walk from the bar. In fact, it’s located in the same row as the hotel.
Changkat Bukit Bintang was quite lively that evening, since it was a weekend. Oh, by the way, whole road was closed to make way for pedestrians to patronise and enjoy the evening. It wasn’t difficult to spot the place, as the big green signage is prominent.
The ambiance was really inviting the moment we stepped in. top 250 labels that they have, they have 5 concoctions that their bartenders created called The Diplomat, Sauvignon Blanco, Duppy’s Antidote, While Stocks Last, and Chocolate & Orange Old Fashioned. Each of us (a party of 5) tried their house cocktails, and what I can say is they are all amazing!
In addition to the rum cocktails, we ordered some snacks as well. We ordered several ones in the snack menu, but our favourite is still the deep fried iberico soft ribs! I have not seen this being served anywhere and I am still salivating when I’m thinking about it! It totally complements the cocktails that we ordered!
