A SCOTTISH venue is to host the country’s first “rum and rhythm” party.

Bringing some sunshine back to Glasgow, the event has been developed by Rusk and Rusk and Bacardi, and will celebrate the flavours and sounds of the Caribbean. The 158 Club Lounge, located in Hutchesons City Grill, is set to host the exclusive party on August 31.

James Rusk of Rusk and Rusk, said: “From carnival to street sound systems, Caribbean music has a unique energy and rhythm that we can’t wait to unleash in Glasgow. The quality of our cocktails and buzzing atmosphere make it the perfect place to enjoy a Cuba Libre or two while socializing with friends”

A selection of canapes will also be on offer, including fried jerk chicken wings, spiced Bajan macaroni pie bites and pickled pork on toast.

Guests will be greeted by samba dancers in traditional dress upon arrival, and can top up their glass at Scotland’s first daiquiri fountain.
