Marley Tribute @ Rum Bar

Rum Bar in Philadelphia (1 of our favorite drinking spots) is hosting a Bob Marley Tribute next week.  Stop by for a night of rum, reggae and good times.


Rum Bar is hosting its 3rd Annual Bob Marley Tribute party, complete with live jams, tempting drink specials and festive fare in honor of the Jamaican legend on the anniversary of the day the world lost a legend.

The tribute, scheduled for 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11th, 30-years to the day Marley died prematurely of cancer, Rum Bar will feature a live performance by Therapy Band who will play everything from Marley’s hits to additional reggae favorites.

Festivities continue with a taste of Jamaican cuisine, including $1 jerk wings and $2 beef empanadas. Drink specials—$4 Red Stripe and an array of $5 cocktails named for Marley melodies, including “Stir It Up”, “Buffalo Soldier” and “One Love.” There is no cover charge.

“As a huge fan of Bob Marley, I wanted to help keep his message of love and peace alive,” says Rum Bar’s Adam Kanter. “We wanted to honor his legacy and spirit — and have a good time,” he says.

Everyday Rum Bar offers a unique escape, striking a pleasing balance between upbeat and intimate, lively, but laid back. Music ranges from contemporary rock to reggae to late-night lounge. Freshly installed B&W photography featuring Kanter’s recent visits to Caribbean rum distillers is on display, bringing even more Caribbean warmth and flare to Rittenhouse Square.

Now with more than 200 rums, Rum Bar is Philadelphia’s premiere place for sampling this complex and spellbinding spirit.  Two infused-rums change weekly and range from pineapple to cucumber to cucumber and more.
