Default Recommendations for bars outside of London?

Hello all,

I'm wondering if any of you can recommend any bars in the UK that aren't located in London? I might be about to take a weekend break somewhere and thought that it would be ideal to choose somewhere with a rum bar - just not in London.

I've seen the map and the only place I can see is Aikman's in St Andrews. Beyond that, I've only found Island Bar in Birmingham. Surely there are more than that?

Thanks, Stevo. I should have added that I'm looking to go a bit further than down the road, too (ie, outside of the North West)

I'll note those places down for future reference, though. The Liars Club name sounds interesting enough on its own!

I just discovered this one yesterday on google search there is a Tiki Bar in Northampton called Hakamou, I cant vouch for it but the drinks menu is primarily Rum based.

Hope this helps

Simon.

There's a very good one in Brighton - can't remember the name though, but if you make your way down the threads in this forum you should find it.

In Birmingham there is a classy bar called Hotel Du Vin - they do classic cocktails, the staff are knowledgeable & have a good selection of top shelf sipping rums.

I go there when I want to try a cocktail Ive been making & would like some tips how to improve - they usually surprise me by making it better!

Last time I was there we asked about rhum agricoles & of the 10 or so they produced, I tried Trois Rivieres 1998 Single Missouri Cask (it was lovely).

They also recommended trying Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask (a scotch finished in a rum barrel). Likewise lovely & soon to be added to my collection!

If you come Birmngham way PM me
