"Drinkin’ Rum before 10:00AM makes you a pirate, not an alcoholic"


How it al started

Rum Barrel was born when two cousins decided to come together and create a bar that would be filled with the things they love, eating and drinking. A place packed with all the things they loved from their worldly travels. They both love to travel and always willing to share their stories with their guests. They wanted to create a place where customers gets the service how they would want to be treated. They opened the doors and offered a piece of tropical paradise in Amsterdam Oost.

Rum Barrel, Erik's passion for Rum

At the Rum Barrel there are more than 200 kinds of Rum which guests can explore and discover their new favorites.  Erik is the man to talk to about Rum when coming to the Rum Barrel. While he traveled to exotic lands he developed a passion for the rum. When he returned in order to go on his next trip he developed his cocktail making skills and went on his journey again to find more rum. Erik is a very social man, casual and enjoys being out and about in the busy city of Amsterdam.
