Rum Club's Industry Night, Monday at 9p.m.

Welcome to the photo series Eater Scenes, in which Eater photographer Dina Avila visits some of the city's top restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, an early Monday evening at Rum Club.

At Michael Shea's beloved east side cocktail den Rum Club, 9p.m. on a Monday evening — usually a night with a heavy industry turnout — is considered "early." Eater's cameras were on scene to capture the calm before the storm, as bartenders Emily Mistell and Adam Robinson poured $3 Fernet shot specials to a soundtrack featuring the Bee Gees' "How Deep Is Your Love," the Outfield's "Use Your Love," and more than one appearance by Hall & Oates.

By nine o'clock, several United States Bartenders' Guild coins came out to play — thanks to bartenders-about-town Jabriel Donohue, Jesse Card, and Jacob Grier — the latter of whom, per tradition, picked up the round after forgetting his coin at home. Go, look at a night at the Rum Club (before things start getting fuzzy):
