It looks like Downtown is getting yet another watering hole by way of a new place called Rhum Bar that's going in at 256 E. Congress St.
The name on the liquor license application is Travis Reese, co-owner of 47 Scott and Scott and Co., which are located respectively at 47 and 49 N. Scott. Ave. Reese and his partner in the business, Nicole Flowers, nailed it with those concepts, getting nods in the national press and pleasing many a diner with incredible comfort food and some of the best cocktails in the city.
We've got a message into Reese to see what's up with Rhum Bar. We'll be back with an update when we hear from him.
While we're on the subject, 47 Scott currently has a summer special featuring two drinks, two meals and a dessert for $47. There's more on that over here.
