WHY HERE: If you ever wondered what a rum map would look like, manager Shane Paule has put together a comprehensive one of this spirit from around the Caribbean. Eleven countries are represented, and more than 50 rums grace the menu. All can be sipped solo or mixed into one of the classic cocktails or a Tiki drink.
WHY NOW: The name comes from the Spanish word for “island,” and everything about this quaint space speaks to the airy booze-filled bars of found by sapphire-hued waters. While Texas might not be known for its beaches, a few sips of the Island Rum Smash or the Rose Sangria will have you pretending you’re right by the ocean.
