We stopped in for a drink and got to hear a very nice band and enjoy cocktails. We had a rum old-fashioned which was well made and very enjoyable. I recommend dropping by here for some good rum and comfortable environment with entertainment.

In the midst of the tourist trap-zone of Time Square and the theater district, this retro-styled piano bar keeps things old fashion. Dimly light atmosphere, live music and selection of creative drinks based mainly on rum. They don't have food menu so don't come hungry,...More

Great place to kick back and listen to some really good live music. Drinks and servers are A-1. A relitively quiet place to chill and beat the noise of Times Square. The owner Kenny's a pretty nice guy too.

We visited the Rum House on 2 consecutive nights - the attentive waitress recognized us immediately and remembered our order! Excellent music. Small place, but you'll get a seat eventually. Drinks not cheap - but the atmosphere more than compensate

This place is a great bar to stop by before or after theater. It has many rums to pick from and the bartenders are very friendly. Has that old barcozy feeling.

Visited here a few times as we were staying at the hotel. Great atmosphere and the live music was excellent. Gets very busy so we struggled to find a seat, but people happily let you join them to sit. Would definitely use this bar again...More

Hi, sorry for delay. a whisky was $12 . for a whisky, vodka/Lemonade and a pint of beer it cost $33 in rum House. In other bars nearby it cost around $27.
Is there a happy hour here? If so, when?
