Introducing…. Ruby’s our new Dalston Basement Bar!

Set underneath the cinema sign at 76 Stoke Newington Road Ruby’s is an intimate subterranean drinking den serving expertly mixed cocktails and quality alternatives in a unique and atmospheric setting. Set up by Tom Gibson in the former kitchen of Ruby House 3, a Chinese takeaway, the room was stripped back and adorned with a Mayfair bar and some delicate interior alterations.

Drinks are made using top quality ingredients with all alcohol being premium and all juices and syrups freshly made on site. We place great emphasis on the small touches that make a difference so all our Blackberry Mojito’s are served in 1940’s milk bottles, all our beer mats are vintage and unique and service will always be performed with a smile. Ruby’s aims to fuse the atmosphere of an old fashioned bar with modern day standards of quality and service.

We have a small carefully crafted cocktail menu which include 7 Ruby’s classics and 7 seasonal ones plus a selection of alternatives including Redchurch Ale, Brooklyn lager, Breton cider, fine wines plus a whole array of others.

Vogue UK “Our fave east London hideaway.”

Grazia “Best London Cocktail Bar Winner 2013”

Design My Night “Best New Bar 2012”

Metro “The Savoy or The Ritz it’s certainly not but Ruby’s is a class act in it’s own lovely lo-fi way.”

Evening Standard/Barchick “The sign says ‘Nothing to See Here”. Not true, there is plenty.”

Time Out “Our new fave hidden Dalston spot, just don’t tell everyone about it!”

Vogue Espana “Few things are closer to the definition of cool.”

View London “Ruby’s is definitely a venue to prove the cynics wrong, possessing the genuine feel of a hidden gem, rather than a try-hard hipster concept bar.”

DIESEL PRESENTS ‘BRAVE NATIVES DIESEL ISLAND’ LAUNCH @ MC MOTORS

Earlier on in the year we hosted a product launch for denim giants Diesel at MC Motors. The event featured a live catwalk show with models sporting the brand’s autumn/winter collections. The event was a huge success and with the day’s proceedings drawing to a close guests then headed through into the basement of Ruby House to cap off the day’s event. Check out these great images of the set up designed and produced by the team at Spice Lumb.

Barbara and Mark’s MC Motors Wedding

Here’s some fantastic images of the recent wedding of Barbara and Mark at MC Motors. After getting married at St. Mary Moorfields Church in Bishopsgate the happy couple arrived down our alleyway via pink taxi. There was a vintage 1950s feel to proceedings with Barbara in her beautiful Candy Anthony prom style dress and the bridesmaids standing out from the crowd in sassy yellow polka dotted numbers.

With the chemistry of the Irish-Aussie crowd bubbling nicely the scene was set for a good ol’ knees up with music provided courtesy of rockabilly outfit The Hightown Crows and MC Motors regulars The Wedding Smashers. The newly-weds then had their profile shots taken next door in Ruby House while the underground bar played host to those late night owls still standing at the end.

We’d like to thank both Barbara and Mark for allowing us to use their fantastic images and we’re delighted to have met you both and that the day went so well. Also many thanks to Nick Tucker, the photographer, for producing such images and again for allowing us to share them. Check out his site for more pictures and if anyone’s looking for a wedding photographer he definitely gets our recommendation!

The wedding (and a very complimentary feature – thanks!) was also featured on cult wedding blog Rock n Roll Bride which also provides plenty more images to delve through!

House of Hackney Pop-up Shop

Over the next few days we’re pleased to be hosting a pop-up shop for the launch of new luxury interior company House of Hackney at our Stoke Newington Road location. Lily Vanilli will also be bringing her expertise to the event with her 180 cake, ice cream and high tea concoction. The shop is open this Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 10am-7pm so feel free to pop along to 76 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7XB. You won’t be able to miss our old illuminated cinema sign outside!

House of Hackney are unveiling collections with a strong local theme being named after cultural landmarks such as “Hackney Empire” and “Dalston Rose”. Their website states “Conceived as the antithesis of disposable identikit furnishings and white wall fatigue the home furnishings, wallpaper and textiles label is characterized by prints and products that are steeped in tradition but are bold and non-conformist. Described as ‘Colefax and Fowler on acid’ the House of Hackney label overhauls the concept of traditional home wares and brings them bang up to date with their playful and irreverent prints.”

Cake specialist Lily Vanilli is also taking over the basement with her 180 members club (though anyone can buy on the day) and is rustling up tantalising delights such as Mini Apple Champagne Donuts and Absinthe and Mint Chocolate Chip ice-cream. These will be complimented by live acts including Marawa the Incredible and her Fruit Salad of Death Act and a Live Fortune Cookie Teller. Tickets are £10 and include cake tasting performances and tea.
