The history of rum in Barbados started in 1703, and over the years it has become a fundamental part of the Bajan culture. So, if you’re an avid rum lover, ensure you visit one of the Barbados rum shops, packed with a huge variety of Caribbean rums in bottles of all sizes.
Join the locals who gather in these shops for a gossip or a game of dominoes; enjoy a drink and a chat or just simply sit back, relax and soak up the atmosphere. Some of the shops also serve snacks and bar food to enjoy, too.
The London Bar, Hercules, Lexies and Braddies are amongst the many well-known rum shops on the island, serving up this delicious drink while live bands play or karaoke sessions begin.
After a day on the beach, few things could be more enjoyable than a night in a rum shop. You can mix with the locals and combine drinking rum with listening to lively reggae music, providing a truly unforgettable Caribbean experience overall.
