The trendy pea green building with HUGE numbers was easy to locate and parking on the street was easy enough too. But it was early. The Rum Club is great for happy hour but is also a late night spot. The patio was open but we opted to sit inside at a long wood table. So much better for people watching.

It wasn't just rum we were after. We had heard the food was good too. So wanting something light to start off the evening, we had a heart to heart with our server. He recommended the house drink, the Rum Club Daiquiri (Bacardi Aged Rum, lime, simple syrup, maraschino, Angostura bitters, absinthe). We looked over the happy hour menu and found a delightful kale salad and steaming squash soup. Both were excellent, seasonal offerings. Yes, food was good at the Rum Club.

But what we will always remember is the signature Daiquiri... a just right sweet/tart combination of tastes that makes you want to slowly sip and savor. They have more than rum at The Rum Club but you have to try this Daiquiri.

The Rum Club is Open 4 p.m.-2 a.m. Monday-Saturday, 5 p.m.- Midnight Sunday.
