Having proved a resounding success in Notting Hill and Soho, the vibrant, fun-loving and heart-warming Rum Kitchen has now come to Brixton to share its fabulous Caribbean cooking and feisty rum cocktails with us.
On what is already a very buzzing street, Rum Kitchen still manages to stand out with a frontage of island orange and blue hues, giving way to an interior of lit shelves adorned with rum bottles - over 200 varieties!
A naturally sociable atmosphere is created via the the large counter bar, which is perfect for sampling the extensive selection of the Caribbean’s favourite spirit combined with a ‘theatre’ kitchen to watch the chefs at work while you nibble on salt fish fritters.
