Coming at us from the well-known Death & Co team, Cienfuegos is located in the East Village. The rum-punch is the perfect thing to share between friends today, with a few classic Cuban plates. 95 Avenue A

Sixty LES

This trendy Lower East Side spot is located inside the swanky Sixty Hotel, a boutique spot with a ton of personality. Expect to see and be seen at this hot spot, with some very #aestheticgoals features like banana leaf plants, neon and fun tiki cups.



Otto’s Shrunken Head

Otto’s Shrunken Head will transport you to the tiny islands of Polynesia, where you’ll be laying back and sipping on a rum cocktail with an umbrella on it. The casual tiki bar offers fun and fruity drinks so you can dance your grass skirt away all night. 538 E 14th St

Miss Lily’s

Head to Miss Lily’s for a National Rum Day celebration you won’t soon forget. Between the authentic Jamaican ambience, fun crowd and live reggae, Miss Lily’s is the perfect place to go, if you can stomach the Thursday hangover that is. 109 Avenue A
