Choose Between Two Options

  • $15 for $30 worth of cocktails and drinks
  • $15 for a regular rum punch bowl (up to a $35 value)<p>

Punch bowls combine fine potent rums with tropical fruit juices in bowls such as the Victorian punch ($35), with silver, coconut, and pineapple rum and cranberry and pineapple juices, or the GoGo punch, with silver, citrus, and raspberry rum mixed with organic lemonade and pineapple juice ($35).<p>

The bartenders set beers ($4.50–$7.50) and cocktails ($5.50–$12) alongside specialty signature rum punches such as the house punch ($5/glass), a blend of silver rum and mango, orange, and pineapple juices. They also forge monthly specials such as May’s Kitchen Sink, which combines Cruzan premium banana, coconut, orange, and pineapple rums with orange, pineapple, lemon, lime, and cranberry juices, as well as a garnish of a splash of Myers’s dark rum.

Hobson's Choice

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.

You can order food from the taco place next door and they bring it to you. The drinks were good.
