PROFILED BY DEGROOTS MEDIA
Hidden behind its arched window facade, The Rum Diaries is an unexpected treasure chest of rum infused cocktails and gourmet sharing delights. Their unique philosophy is to meld food with spirits to produce decadent tapas plates that would make both pirates and politicians toast to their differences. The cocktail list reads like an adventure storybook, narrating the histories behind each concoction; the bar itself boasts around 100 different rums. For a thrill, order a rum blazer and be treated to a theatrical show of blue flames, citrus sparks and intoxicating spiced vapours. The restaurant has a clandestine appeal with many of the tables made out of old wooden doors and crates giving the rooms a chic shipwrecked effect. Walls are lined with candles and bottles of rum, and a chandelier dangles daintily from the ceiling telling tales of another world.

Not only are the staff refreshingly passionate and amicably trendy, they’re buccaneers of their trade and will jump at the chance to explain, demonstrate or advise any interested guest. The Diaries’ chorizo brochette, dark rum and poached pear is served as three individual morsels to be eaten in that order; the three flavours marrying perfectly for a tongue-tantalising beginning. Move on to some skewered Moroccan beef kofti with apricot and honey yoghurt and refresh your palate with organic salmon ceviche with bloody mary jelly. Free-range rump of lamb with lentil mash, tomato chutney and rustic bread is a heartier meal for two. Finish smoothly with the assiette of rum and chocolate, which is served with three shots of white, milk and dark chocolate mousse all flavoured with different rums. Whether from Bondi or beyond, get thee thar and get your mitts around a hot-buttered rum and feel free to indulge in some impromptu honky-tonk on the piano after dinner.
