Rum Club, Tropical Kitchen

Relaxing, chilling, enjoying life to the fullest, that is the art of ‘liming’. It’s also the philosophy we want to transfer to our guests at Rum Club. Deep in the cellars of Utrecht, there is a tropical paradise arising. Guests can enjoy all things tropical; the food, music, cocktails, beers and rum will all contain influences of exotic places.

Other than a place to sit back, chill and enjoy island style food and drinks, guests can also shake it to the hottest jungle, Caribbean, hip-hop and tropical beats provided by our resident DJ’s.

Are you the multitalented bird of paradise we are looking for?
