While away an afternoon at a roadside rum shack
With more than 1,800 rum shops, these roadside shacks have been the backbone of the island’s community for decades. To this day, they remain close-knit social hubs for neighbors, friends and families, and most have been owned and run by families for generations. These no-frill shacks tend to have a few things in common: a handful of plastic chairs and tables, stacks of glass rum bottles and posters advertising local rum distilleries on the walls. These unfussy drinking spots will get you right to the heart of the Barbados life and are so ubiquitous that there’s always one nearby. However, if you are looking for a good starting point, try TML One Love Bar, which can be found on a low-key side street in Holetown.
