23 Aug El Arsenal The Rum Box – Bar
El Arsenal: The Rum Box, conveniently located on Calle del Arsenal in Getsemani in front of the Convention Centre has made quite an impression on Cartagena’s bar scene and has quickly become one of the (if not THE BEST) bar in the great historic city.
The super chilled out vibe, excellent music, amazing cocktails and exceptionally friendly staff who even give out free hugs are what make this place so great. The bearded owner, Abe is extremely knowledgable and passionate about his practice and mixing drinks is no joke to him and his team.
Abe is also super friendly and full of tips on things to do and places to visit while in Cartagena, don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with him as this Colombian is also fluent in English and loves to share his local knowledge.
The former chef turned mixologist and his experienced staff are continuously mixing up new creations to add to their always innovative and always changing menu. They even have a “surprise me” special where you can tell them what flavours you are going for and they will invent the perfect drink to suit your all your tastes.
Behind the bar, you will find an extensive variety of top-notch rums which help build extremely delicious and carefully prepared cocktails. Cocktails are mixed with both classic and exotic ingredients and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, the drinks are that good.
The bar is also stocked with a decent selection of board games to bring people together and help pass the time while enjoying next level cocktails and delicious bar/snack food. Everything you could ask for and more all wrapped up in a cool and trendy local, what’s not to love?
