The Rum Shack is bringing a Caribbean flavour to Strathbungo, having moved into the former The Old Kind Man on Pollokshaws Road. The pub is enormous, with the main bar upstairs and venue downstairs – the inventively-titled Downstairs at The Rum Shack, which has capacity for 270.
Gig and club nights are hosted regularly, as well as acoustic sessions and plenty of other bits and bobs. Despite the size of the space, the bar has a homely feel, with hand-crafted tables, wall units and ceilings, and up-cycled furniture completing the vibe. The shelves are lined with bottles and bottles of rum – with the bar currently stocking over 100 different types, from Angostura to Rhum Agricole. Food is served from The Caribbean Kitchen, meaning you can look forward to flavours of such, including jerk chicken and curried goat. And there's a steady stream of reggae on the sound system, obvs.
