Rum Journal: Dominica’s Hi-Rise Beach Bar


It’s on the water.

There’s sand.

It must be a beach.

While Roseau’s most popular beach bar isn’t actually on the beach, you might think so after a rum punch or two.

This is the Hi-Rise Beach Bar, a lively bar with a sand floor on the second story of an old building in Dominica’s capital, perched right above the ocean on the town’s main waterfront.

The bar, with a regular DJ, superb smoothies and a nice bar offering with everything from the aforementioned rum punch to local libations like Soca, has become one of the most happening spots in the capital.

It’s a sister bar to the legendary Ruins Rock Bar in the capital, with the same kind of friendly Dominican personality (and some of the Ruins Rock’s famous spiced rums, too).

The result? The best beach bar in Roseau.

Because with rum, vibes and music like this, this must be on the beach.
