Washington will lose one of its best rum bars this weekend when Hogo closes for good Saturday night. But for those mourning the impending loss of retro tiki drinks, all hope is not lost.
As cocktail bars and speakeasies continue to crop up around town, bartenders have rediscovered the versatility and complexity that rum can bring to a drink. That has given way to a number of new locations enjoy the spirit, whether a drinker wants to sip on rare, aged rum or enjoy a strong tropical punch.
Still not convinced? Try a serious cocktail bar like PX or the Columbia Room. Rum may not be their emphasis, but they'll definitely be able to craft something to satisfy any rum-lover's palate.
