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.”

Amy Winehouse

Back in February we hosted what proved to be Amy Winehouse’s last promo shoot. It was one of the first photoshoots at our Ruby House location and has easily provided some of the best images we’ve seen so far. While the term “iconic” gets bandied around all too easily in the blogging world these fantastic pictures shot by David Ellis show that never was there a term more apt.

The world will certainly be a quieter place without Amy Winehouse but her husky, soulful voice and powerful personality will, quite rightfully, immortalise her for years to come.

RIP Amy Winehouse 1983-2011
