Great place with cool atmosphere. I came with a few friends and their cocktail are really good. I am currently drinking the flamingo kid and I really like it.

When you look up the Rum Club online, the lights are bright, and there's a smiling bar tender behind the bar...When I actually walked in to the Rum Club the lights were almost off, mainly lit by red LED type christmas looking lights along the bar. This combined with the fact that it's in an industrial type neighborhood is probably why I got a grungy vibe, not because it didn't look nice or clean. The woman bar tender - how can I say this - continued to give me a grungy feel. I made a joke about my I.D. - not even a smile. When I asked if she enjoyed making the drinks or drinking the drinks more, she answered that she thought mixology is dorky and that she doesn't drink... So I'm supposed to take a non drinking bartender who doesn't like mixing drinks seriously? That's like a Dr. telling me he's pretty sure my operation isn't going to be succesful before giving me anesthesia. We managed to have some neutral conversation, but this girl definitely though the more depressed and negative she was, the cooler she was, like answering me "I only go to sh**ty dive bars" when I asked her where she hangs out...OK princess of darkness. The drinks themselves were awesome, the 90s alternative rock music was great, I'd definitely return after hitting up the other great craft cocktail bars Portland has to offer.

Had the ocassion to try the Rum Club tonight with some friends. The special rum drink was the 'Preakness' which was a lovely concoction made of rye, vermouth, benedictine and bitters. I ordered that and boy-o-boy was it LOVELY! Rather like a a more intense and flavorful Manhattan. If you try one, be prepared to sip it for a couple of hours as it packs quite a punch! The snack mix is an ungraded Chex mix and really nice. Service was really friendly, unobtrusive and timely. Music was a bit loud. A definite second,third, fourth trip are in the offing to the Rum Club.

The Drinks here are Strong and Amazing!! They have a taste for everyone! I got to try the Pineapple Turnovers as a snack. They were fantastic and came with Fresh Cream! We heard about this place while flying into Portland, they offer a free Bar show on Delta flights which travels through Portland showing you different cool bars to check out! This place was a bit Pricey, but like I said the Drinks were POTENT!! They are straight RUMS!! The owner happened to be hanging out Pouring drinks so we got a chance to chat with him for awhile which was cool. it was nice to get the history of a place!! This is a MUST STOP place, but be weary of your wallet the drinks go down quick and are not CHEAP!
