et intimate with rum cocktails from one of Greece’s top bars as Baba Au Rum lands in Shanghai for a five-day pop up at The Portman Ritz-Carlton this April.
Baba Au Rum is a rum and cocktail bar located in the historical centre of Athens. They have an extended list of both classic and contemporary cocktails and more than 350 different labels of rum from around the world, as well as lots of whiskies, cognacs, gins, and agave spirits.
It’s an enviable offering that won Baba Au Rum multiple awards since they opened in 2009. Recognitions include a spot on the World’s 50 Best Bars list in 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018, where they most recently placed 22nd.
For the pop up, bartenders Elias Stergiopoulos and Thanos Prounarous will serving cocktails from their Avant Garde menu, which is influenced by futurism, modernism, conceptual art, and the revival movement.
One of Baba Au Rum’s most historically beautiful cocktails grooves its way into the future. Bacardi Reserva 8 years old rum jives with a blend of banana, stout, and caramel that’s rolled with lemon and coffee essence.
Vintage turns exotic with a fresh take on lemon, elderflower, a dash of Italian bitter liqueur and homemade fassionola – a classic tiki syrup of passionfruit, cherry, and orange.
An elegant whisky soda with Aberfeldy 12, a hint of fresh Martinique island rhum, green apple, pear, shiso, and dried apricot.
This iconic cocktail has been rejuvenated with the addition of pineapple and rose in a blend of Caribbean rums for an exotic Negroni.
