Bar with good rum selection?

Any recommendations for a bar in Boston, Cambridge or thereabouts with a good selection of rums? Something beyond the usual Bacardi/Captain Morgan/Mt Gay. Also, I'm less interested in rum cocktails, but more interested in rums of a good enough quality to be sipped on their own.

    RumBa at the Hotel Intercontinental.

      Are there any other options? I'm a low-key drinker who'd rather avoid the hotel bar scene and the hotel bar prices.

        Hmm...I will have to leave that one to the larger group.

          Taking a guess here because of their Tiki lounge, but I'd expect East Coast Grill might have some: http://www.eastcoastgrill.net/. I'd also give Rendezvous http://www.rendezvouscentralsquare.com/ and Green Street Grill http://www.greenstreetgrill.com/ in Central Square, Cambridge a call.

          I haven't been in a few years, but Chez Henri had some pretty nice rums the last time I was there.

            saw some interesting bottles, sorry, couldn't make out the names, at ESK on Wednesday. they might have something Very Interesting as they gear up for the Tiki event there next week.

              The place at the Intercontinental does indeed have a good selection of rums, but it's a hideous bar in every sense.

              Green Street's owner Dylan Black is a rum aficionado who keeps a small but interesting selection on hand; further, he and his staff are among the best bartenders in town. Recommended even if you don't find the rums you're looking for.
