Rum Bum Beach Bar, Bermuda
This is a little beach bar… basically a shack on Horseshoe Bay Beach
and a great place to grab a quick bite and drink while here. The main bar has a roof made from palm tree fronds and it has a Tiki bar feel about it with reggae music playing in the background. It boasts of a well stocked bar along with a full service kitchen which offers a mix of Bermudian and overseas cuisine, served al fresco in their patio overlooking one of the top rated beaches in the world. In keeping with its beach setting, it offers a very casual and relaxed ambience.
They also have a gift shop where you can pick up little souvenirs or t-shirts and sweatshirts to carry back home, an ice-cream stand and a rental hut that offers beach loungers, sand chairs, beach umbrellas boogie board, tent along with full snorkeling gears. One of their main attractions is the live music and entertainment that they organize on several days of the week throughout the year.

This outlet is owned by Rick Olson who also owns a couple of other food venues on the island- the former Red Steakhouse and Bar and Bermuda Bistro at the Beach, both in Hamilton.
Apart from the regular 'Dark n Stormy' and 'Rum Swizzles', you can also try some of their ice cold cocktails like the Bacardi Mojito and Iced Tea or the non-alcoholic frozen drinks, pina coladas which are all quite nice. Some of the other favorites here are the Gosling Black Rum and Black and Coke, which are delicious. They offer bucket beers that come at a fair price compared to the island standards.
