Open since spring, Latin-Caribbean rum cocktails and food offerings are the focus at Fats Duvall’s Rhum Cafe, a SoHo drink destination and restaurant from the team behind spots like The Brooklyn Inn, The Magician, and WCOU (Tile Bar). In a tropical-themed dining room adorned with murals and table figurines that’ll inspire your next beach vacation, vibe out with a wide selection of rum and global beers, alongside head bartender Linda Garcia’s (Clover Club, Le Boudoir) signature cocktails like the Roll Me a Cigar (coffee-bean infused rum, smoked cinnamon), and the Pink Flamingo (rum, watermelon, grapefruit and guava juice) that’s served in an actual pink flamingo glass. Dine on empanadas, fluke ceviche, and chimichurri steak before finishing it off with homemade beignets or dessert specials like banana bread pudding. Thursdays from 6 pm-10 pm are domino nights with $12 drink specials.
