What’s On: Alcohol, check! Gelato, check! Reservation, now!



Floridita Rum Shack (www.floriditalondon.com/rum-shack) is delighted to announce the launch of the UK’s first Alcoholic Gelato Bar in an exciting collaboration with award-winning London gelateria Gelupo, who have created a bespoke ice cream menu infused with Floridita rums.

The Rum Shack gelato bar will feature a selection of six bespoke rum-infused flavours, inspired by Floridita’s favourite global rum brands: Pussers, La Hechicera and Matusalem, Appleton Rum, Plantation, Chairman’s Reserve and Bacardi.


Make no mistake, this gelato menu is not for kids. With rum infused in every scoop, the menu is designed to be enjoyed during late night revelry in the Rum Shack, for guests to make believe the sun is shining, even when the British summer is letting us down.

• Rum & Raisin: A twist to the all-time favourite classic -Pussers rum-infused raisin gelato with a zing of orange zest

• Rum Butterscotch: An exotic flavour using Plantation Rum that consists of a rich caramel gelato, smooth with butter

• Cuban Spiced Chocolate Rum: A chocolate, cinnamon & chilli gelato using La Hechicera & Matusalem Rum with a heady scent of toffee and orange peel on the nose

• Banana Daiquiri Sorbet: Crushed bananas with a ripe aroma of Appleton Rum that brims with the scents of orange peel, spices, brown sugar and molasses

• Blood Orange Sorbet: A refreshing & mouth-watering sorbet with Chairman’s Reserve Rum that is both sweet and light on the palate

• Mojito Sorbet: A bracing concoction of limes, brown sugar and mint with Bacardi rum. Tastes like your favourite cocktail, only better

Each flavour, priced at £3.50 per scoop, will be drizzled with matching rum, to complement the vibrant and rich flavours of the rum gelato.

For those guests who want to try every single flavour on the menu, Floridita are offering a full gelato tasting ‘sundae’, which will allow guests to enjoy a deliciously boozy sharing experience. This will consist of six scoops of ice cream drizzled with matching rum: the full rum gelato menu on one platter (£18.50).

The bar is open from 5.30pm to 3.00am making it the perfect location to begin or end your evening in the buzzing Soho area, and can also be hired for exclusive private bookings – the ultimate beach party.
