    Rum shops

    What your favorite rum shop/shack. I am looking for names and/or general locations.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Essoville Rum Shop - San Nicolas
    Urataka Center - they also have great pizza

    Those are two of the larger ones. Our favorite rum shops are the small ones we stumble upon when we're out exploring and decide it's time to take a break for a cold drink or two. Usually our favorite one is the one we happen to be sitting in at the time. LOL! I take that back....we used to LOVE The Caribbean Store Bar until it closed last year - Friday nights at 5pm were packed and fun!

    Thanks Amy. I remembered seeing them talked about in trip reports, just couldn't remember whose. I hope to find some of the smaller ones if we make out exploring. My friends will be there on a cruise next year so I would like to give them a few to try to find.

    I also loved the Caribbean Store and visited there last year. I was so sad when I learned it had closed.

    Not really a rum shop but a great little Dutch bar (drinks and Dutch snacks) is Cafe 080. We've been going there since they opened and love meeting friends there for drinks and a late night snack.

    I still have a bottle of Rum from last year (not opened) is it still good? How long does it last? I also have 4 bottles of Bermuda Gold Liquer (from Bermuda, Haha) from 2005, do you think that is still good?
