Though originally heralded as one of London's most coveted secret cocktail bars, Ruby's have since built on their popularity by creating Ruby's Bar and Lounge; a renovated larger space next to their clandestine hangout, fronting beers, wines and lively DJs come the weekend.

Ruby's Cocktail Bar

Perched beneath the unmissable cinema sign on Stoke Newington Road in Dalston, Ruby's is an intimate drinking den renowned for its vibrant atmosphere and exceptional cocktails. Nestled in a former Chinese takeaway, the venue features a network of glazed brick, stripped paint walls, wooden floors and a mish-mash selection of tables, chairs and lampshades to create a truly unique vibe. Ruby's cocktail menu has been specially designed to complement the character of the bar, with the signature cocktail Blackberry Mojito served in an original 1940's Manchester milk bottle, and the passion fruit Bison Vodka Juleps served in a tin cup. If cocktails aren't you're thing, there are a selection of ales, lagers and fine wines to choose from.

Ruby's Lounge

The lounge is a 60s Parisian inspired space with faux marble, gold touches and white accents influencing the decor. The cocktail bar offers the familiar Ruby’s signatures as well as a good choice of beer and a wine list curated by Clapton favourite, Verden. The perfect place for cool drinks mid-week on a date or a group of friends looking to escape the hustle and bustle of London above. On weekends the pace picks up with DJs and a fun-time atmosphere to have drinks and party on into the night. Large booth areas also make the perfect base for any celebrations from 10-60 people. The venue impresses with its diverse entertainment roster fronting live performances in the week and DJ sets at the weekends.

Amazing place to chill and relax with your mates. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and chilled night out. The prices weren't too bad and the staff were nice aswell.

Came here on Saturday night after dinner about 10pm. Great vibe. Very busy but in a good way. Cool music - not to in your face. A great late night go-to bar for good crowd, good atmosphere and good drinks.

Lovely cosy place and friendly staff. Nice small cocktails but with lots of ice. The only thing I didn't like, were the stairs. Still, a place I would definitely go again. Ibadete visited Ruby's Bar and Lounge on 06 Jan 2016

A very intimate, and well hidden 'secret' cocktail bar. The staff are very attentive and the cocktails were delicious. I particularly loved the special cocktail 'Mother of Dragons' - a fiery blend of ginger and chilli!

Overrated & pretentious. if you don't have a booking the bar staff won't even serve you while you wait because it's tiny inside - if you aren't seated you're in the way.

Something totally different from other Dalston hangouts - the decor is really cool and the staff are super friendly. The drinks aren't half bad, either. This is definitely one to impress on a date!

ruby's is certainly worth the wait to get in - wander downstairs and you'll find yourself in a tiny room, with tables scattered throughout and couples nattering the night away. the staff insist on table service with a smile. a charming lil' drinking den and one of the shining lights of the dalston strip.

Fantastic date night bar. Great cocktails, friendly staff and not to expensive. Strongly recommend,

Came down here on a thursday night and it's so great! Found it on the secret bars feature on this site and damn right -- it's an amazing secret place. Great cocktails and friendly bar staff. What more do you need?!

<p>What a lovely old Cinema! said my overly exuberant friend! Look, we found one of those rare gems that probably screen Casablanca, she continueed. Very excited by the existence of such a place, we ventured inside. Well, not only have we not found Casablanca, but we found Some Men Like it Hot. The proper speakeasy bar, tucked away from the indiscret views of the masses, Ruby, greets you with a fabulous selection of spirits, served in ingenious recipients! I am so coming back for my dark rhum breezier cocktail . Please multiply this place!</p>

<p>Perfect for cocktails and one on ones! Great little bar..</p>

<p>Got to be my new favourite cocktail bar in London! Love the decor, staff are lovely and the drinks to die for! Shame its quite far east but worth the trip past Shoreditch!! We went to the nest after for clubbing!! Great night in total</p>
13 Sep 2012 by

<p>Loved this place. Read the DesignMyNight review and thought to give it a go...and you were bang on! Loved the ambience and the cocktails were delicious. My new favourite cocktail bar I think! If only it were in Soho, I'd be there every night I think!</p>

<p>Went here before visiting The Nest on saturday night. went on the recommendations on this site and wasnt disappointed. Such a cool secret little cocktail bar. You feel really in the know down there but there is not one ounce of pretense. Staff are really friendly and the cocktails were delicious and have a great choice of spirits. There happened to be a hot barman too! Ill be back.</p>

<p>Delighted to find this drinking den! This is what speakeasies should be about! Kinda hidden with no sign outside, a buzz down there of lots of groups huddled up chatting and drinking, friendly staff and a quirky and tasty drinks menu. the perfect place for chilled out drinks, pre drinks or catching up with mates (also good for date night!)</p>
04 May 2012 by

<p>LOVE this place! Went on a saturday night and it is a proper speakeasy! no signage by the door (apart from a v friendly bouncer) and then you head down into this wonderfully cute bar. Shabby cool chic springs to mind! You do kinda need a table as they dont want to overcrowd it so make sure you book! and then they let people in as other people leave! Cocktails in authentic milk bottles and cool teacups (and very tasty). I had a bourbon lemonade served in a mini pint glass which was delicious. Want cool cocktails out north/east then i def recommend chilling down here.</p>

<p>Went here on saturday night, Rubys is fantastic! Had to queue to get in, so would recommend booking ahead, but once down, it was a true speakeasy vibe, great crowd, everyone packed into the little tables, and the bar serving up great cocktails! I loved the Kentucky lemonade! So yummy. So glad I have found this bar.</p>
