Enjoy Vizcaya VXOP, the Ultimate Sipping Rum, at Caña, L.A.’s Ultimate Rum Bar

One of downtown Los Angeles’s newest hot spots, Caña Rum Bar, is proud to serve Vizcaya VXOP—the ultimate sipping rum.

Caña has been reinvented by nightlife impresario Cedd Moses from the space’s previous incarnation, the exclusive members-only club The Doheny. Although it’s still a private club, the membership has dropped from $2200 to just $20, and the venue still offers a lush, intimate atmosphere and high-quality cocktails. Not only that, but the membership fee is actually donated to a different, worthwhile charity each month. In Caña’s opening month, the proceeds went to Haiti earthquake relief.

Caña serves a variety of small-batch rums and intriguing rum-based drinks, including a line of retro-chic tiki drinks. One of the premium rums served in this inviting lounge is Vizcaya VXOP, the warm, sultry notes of which are a perfect complement to the vibe at Caña—which is at once worldly and cozy, sexy and mellow. With live Latin and Carribean music, as well as special rum tastings and other events, Caña is not just a club, but a destination.

Caña’s nooks and atmospheric lighting make it a perfect place to bring a date, or to catch up with an old friend. Or come with the whole crowd, and sample a variety of drinks you won’t get anywhere else, like a deliciously gingery Dark and Stormy, the best daiquiri of your life, or the two-person Zombie. Any of the specialty cocktails which Caña’s experienced bartenders can concoct for you are a perfect way to showcase Vizcaya VXOP’s sophisticated nuances of clove, brown sugar, nutmeg, caramel and vanilla. Perhaps you might prefer to sip your Vizcaya neat or on the rocks, so you can mull over its delectable subtleties, while enjoying your favorite cigar on Caña’s inviting enclosed patio.

Just like Vizcaya VXOP, Caña Rum Bar takes pleasure to a new level. Both are posh yet accessible, offering something for the rum novice and the knowledgeable connoisseur alike. Where better to savor a glass of the ultimate sipping rum—Vizcaya VXOP—than at Los Angeles’s ultimate destination for the enjoyment of rum, Caña Rum Bar?

To get to Caña, which is located at 714 West Olympic Boulevard, enter the first private driveway south of Olympic on Flower. Call them at 213.745.7090.

Vizcaya VXOP To Be Featured At Premium Rum & Cigar Event

Vizcaya VXOP rum, with its warm, spicy bouquet and robust character, has often been described as the perfect libation to sip while smoking a fine cigar. So it comes as no surprise that TheFiftyBest has named Vizcaya as one of the featured rums at its upcoming Premium Rum & Cigar Tasting event.

Held at Cipriani Wall Street—a landmark Greek revival venue that was once the home of the New York Stock Exchange and the United States Customs House—this tasting will showcase some of the world’s most captivating rums and cigars. A selection of delectable appetizers, provided by Cipriani’s renowned chefs, will further enhance the evening.

Relax on the terrace at Cipriani while enjoying the lush, captivating taste of Vizcaya. One sip and you’ll understand why Vizcaya VXOP recently won “Best in Show” in the rum category, as well as a Double Gold medal, at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Vizcaya’s distinctive complexity and sophistication have garnered it a number of other awards, including a Gold Medal at the 2009 Ministry of Rum Tasting.

The hints of smoke that mingle with the spice and brown sugar notes of Vizcaya VXOP are an outstanding counterpoint to highly rated cigars from Drew Estate, such as Acid, Chateau Real and Natural. Vizcaya’s soft finish, redolent of cloves, echoes the warmth of the cigar and leaves a lingering sweetness.

If you consider yourself an aficianado of premium cigars and high quality sipping rums—or even if you’re just beginning to learn about them—you need to mark your calendars and join us at Cipriani for an evening of refined pleasure.

The Premium Rum & Cigar Tasting is hosted by TheFiftyBest.com, an unbiased guide to fine living for those with epicurean tastes. The event will be held on Thursday, May 27, 2010, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person in advance, $65 at the door. Seats for this event are limited; reserve your place on the terrace now.
