    A breath of fresh air in the armpit of midtown. Get the bathroom pass and check out the Art Deco Edison lobby

    Rum based cocktails, but the mojito was too sour IMHO. Live jazz was great & the dark & stormy decent.

    It's called "The Rum House," but you can't go wrong with the Elijah Craig Manhattan.

    If you like rum drinks this is the place. I love rum and tonics. They have every rum I know. Usually it's Bacardi and captain Morgan. I have to come back for the live jazz. Bartenders the real deal.

    Pisco sour w ginger and mint. But really, tell the bartender the oddest of mixes to your mood and they'll make something good
