For a bar just off Times Square, it's surprisingly not annoying. Perhaps it's the fact that The Rum House is in the not-so-trendy Edison Hotel (though The Edison's been given a good scrub and refresh since the last time I was in the lobby). Or maybe it's because it was a super-rainy evening. Regardless, the vibe was surprisingly chill and the drinks were great.
The Rum House is inside The Edison Hotel, 228 West 47th Street just west of Broadway.
