Rum Trader is a tiny, dark Tiki bar in Berlin. It’s been there since 1976. Outside, there is a thick yellow door frame with rounded corners and a modest sign, but unless you know what you’re looking for you’ll probably miss it. Inside, there are only 13 seats. If you want to get in, you have to ring the bell, at which point the proprietor will answer and if the place is full, or if he doesn’t like the look of you, probably turn you away.
