Thought it would be a great tiki or classy rum bar. Instead it was a bro filled frat bar with mostly rum, but also jaegar and fireball nonsense. Not a bad Groupon value, but the venue is meh.

It's an enjoyable place. I agree with the Yelp reviews: the punch bowls are weak and too sugary. They are good, but they could use way more rum. The beer selection is fine and the environment is relaxed. Would go again.

From Our Editors

Beneath twin lanterns rests the entrance to a quiet punch house modeled after the classic British punch houses of the Victorian era. These are not punches of fruit or fist, but rather of rum, the chosen inebriant of Hobson's Choice. The bar stocks more than 120 varieties of this sugary spirit, including Old Grog, Myers's, and Neisson Réserve Spéciale, as well as rare and limited-quantity batches. Beneath a line of antique chandeliers dripping with sweet, sweet history, the staff fills glasses with specialty cocktails such as the Planter's Punch, a mixture of Coruba dark Jamaican rum, fresh orange juice, lemon juice, and grenadine. To chase these libations, they also serve food catered by the nearby Asqew Grill.
