If you're in the heart of the city and need a decent bar to go stop by, The Rum House provides a decent hideaway. It's located in the Edison Hotel. The custom cocktails were on point but it will fill up fast/easily as there aren't many options for a non-touristy drink in the area. They also don't do reservations and seating is first come first serve. Snacks were skipable and pricey.
This place is really cool..which is surprising given that it is in Times Square. Really non touristy. Drinks were delicious. Live music was a plus. The only thing keeping this from a (perfect) 5 is that the piano player was dressed in normal clothes instead of matching the era of the bar. Also, the snack menu was pretty disappointing. I didn't actually try the food, so maybe it was good, but would have appreciated more selection. Otherwise, I liked it!
This place is a small oasis in the craziness that is Times Square. Amazing atmosphere with live jazz music and the bartenders and great, just be respectful. It can get busy and it is small, so be patient. This place was also the bar in the Oscar nominated film 'Birdman'.
Loved the Rum House.....a real NYC bar. Great bartender.......good times. Loved it being almost in the Edison lobby....since that is where we were saying....but can come in right from thr street as well...great
Great live music - piano, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, banjo, drums. Good drinks, fun crowd, intimate environment.
