This one’s for the Rum enthusiasts. Just a stone’s throw away from Bond Street station and Oxford Street, this hidden basement bar in Central London is a Rum haven. As the gospel of Rum continues to spread across the globe, Burlock’s Rum list includes not only the best of the Caribbean but also…

    I went to the Caribbean brunch for my engagement party and it was EPIC! DJ big J was playing the best music and played exactly what the crowd wanted to hear. The carnival dancer was brilliant and really got the crowd warmed up. The food was tasty with generous portions and the drinks were flowing - highly recommend!
