Barbados Rum & Rum Shops
Looking for a rum shop ? Well they are literally around every corner on the island. There are all sorts of rum shops all over Barbados. Depending on how you define a rum shop, there are from 1,000 to 12,000 scattered across the island. They include village shops that provide everything — groceries, bread, provisions — and are a local meeting place with rum and dominoes to while the hours away with good friends and talk.
At the high end there are diners, cafés and even restaurants that feel like rum shops. Like Cutters, just past The Crane, for example. It has an open bar, entertainment and traditional ham, cheese and fish cutters along with salads and roast beef dinners. The ambience of the chattel house diner is very much like a rum shop.
