New Orleans' newest bar focuses on one beloved spirit: rum. And many say, including owners Nick Detrich and Kirk Estopinal, say that rum is the ultimate American spirit.
The bar, which will open in the former Pravda bar, plans to serve an array of rum-based drinks popular from the early 19th century on. That includes colonial punches to the tiki cocktails of Prohibition. And because rum conjures an image of a port city like New Orleans, the owners say they hope to create a vibe of sailors, ocean, and rum.
The bar will be open by Tales of the Cocktail in July.
