The Rum Room is a hidden speakeasy bar in the depths of Itz’ana’s Resort. The room is steeped in tradition and teeming with stories that celebrate the spirit of our land and sea. A private enclave with bright, whimsical murals and a mix of textures throughout.
The shuffled letters evoke mysticism and craftsmanship. The hand symbol/sign hovers between divinity and ‘street’ expression. The angelic hand with it’s crossed fingers carries a dual signal, leaving an open interpretation for the viewer. By crossed your fingers, you are wishing for good luck. If you hide your hand out of sight, though, it means you are telling a deliberate lie. This shifty meaning fits perfectly with the secrecy of a hidden bar.
