Rum Club: Rum isn’t just for Mardi Gras and Cruise ships

Rum has earned a bad rap as the drink of pirates and the base of fruity cocktail drinks. While that is totally true, there is so much more to this versatile spirit than Mai Tais and Grog! The chicas y hombres at La Isla are more than happy to introduce you to some of the finest rums, rum cocktails, and food pairings. Each month, the staff excitedly dedicate a themed night to do just that, with small plates designed around rums and cocktails.
December’s theme was a Holiday Special featuring a Cranberry-Ginger Mule, a Kirk and Sweeney 18 Manhattan, Hot Buttered Rum, and the Puerto Rican take on eggnog, Coquito

This month, themed “Rum in The New Year”, promises some unique and intriguing rums from brands big and small with the following:


  • Last Tuesday of the month in Ballard (1/26/16)
  • La Isla Ballard – 2320 NW Market St, Seattle, WA 98107


  • Last Wednesday of the month in Redmond (1/27/16)
  • La Isla Redmond – 16505 Redmond Way, Redmond, WA 98052

TAB: Between $35-$40 per person +Gratuity

No pre-purchase of tickets or membership is required–just a willingness to try good food and rum! They do ask that you RSVP via Facebook for a head count since space is limited.
