RumBa Hotel Bar in BostonY ears ago, rum was New England's most prolific and profitable trade item and a popular choice among the locals - they say even Paul Revere stopped for a nip during his famous midnight ride. RumBa pays tribute to the legends and lore of the historic rum trade period in a sophisticated rum-themed cocktail bar serving an international collection of distilled rums, deliciously bold appetizers, and hip-moving mixes of popular Latin and Caribbean music.
RumBa features two bars, a cut block mesquite wood floor, a Venetian plaster ceiling, a state-of-the-art Séura mirror, three plasma screen TVs and wireless Internet. The cocktail tables in front of the clear glass fireplaces are fashioned from second-hand Louis Vuitton trunks, a cool contrast to the soft brown leather sofas with their exquisite blue fabric backs.
Newly opened in June 2012, check out our new outdoor bar - RumBa on the Waterfront - more info here!
Celebrating Boston's rich rum history, which established the region as a prominent economic force in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, our rum bar pays tribute to a by-gone era. Ironically, RumBa - which has nothing to do with the famous Latin dance "the Rumba" - is a Bostonian's classic pronunciation of "Rum Bar" (the ‘R' in ‘Bar' being silent). Rum Bar simply evolved to RumBa.
