Saint House Rum Bar opens on Thursday at 256 E. Congress St., introducing Tucsonans to the diversity of rum and the flavors from rum-producing countries.

The menu includes a few styles of ceviche, Cuban sandwiches, jerk chicken breast salad, fresh battered shrimp to order, taro root chips and dishes employing fish and beef that borrow influences from Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Haiti and other Caribbean nations. Entrees start at $12 and top out at $22.

Saint House will pour from 40 rums from Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Saint Croix, Martinique, Haiti and other countries as mixologists create specialty drinks including the much maligned daiquiri.

St. House Rum Bar joins business partners Travis Reese and Nicole Flowers’ other downtown joints — 47 Scott bistro and Scott & Co. speakeasy.
