Rum Bar Launches “a-RUM-a Therapy” Punch Hour Social

AZ’s Only Exclusively-Rum Establishment to Feature $5 Punch Cocktails, $6 Small Plates, 5pm – 7pm Weekdays

When 5 o’clock hits, it’s time to “punch out” and then “punch in” at the Rum Bar for its new a-RUM-a Therapy punch social hour. Every weekday, the downtown Phoenix bar will feature a $5 rum punch and a specially priced food menu for the nearby skyscraper-dwelling biz folks and Valley cocktail lovers alike.

But if it’s cheap beer and wings you seek, keep moving.

“Relax… sniff, swirl and enjoy these cocktails,” says owner Dwayne Allen. “a-RUM-a Therapy is really meant to be therapeutic for the spirit.”

Like all of Rum Bar’s craft cocktails, these frequently changing punches feature premium ingredients, made-from-scratch tinctures, fresh summer fruits and fragrant spices. Stop in from 5pm-7pm and find the large celebratory punch bowl set for serving to those thirsty for relaxation after a long day’s work. And there’s more good news . . .

Rum Bar will also debut a new summer cocktail menu Wednesday, June 6th (download new cocktail menu here), ensuring the spirited downtown spot stays the official sanctuary for summer drinks.

The unparalleled assortment of rum and rum cocktails is the spot’s main draw – that is until visitors take a seat on the misted, open-air patio, try a taste of Rum Bar’s specialty plates and experience one of the most affordable (and fun) forms of therapy around – the kind that comes with a fine island concoction in one hand and a pair of sunglasses in the other, the perfect formula to keep both the creative – and Caribbean – juices flowing until your next visit.
