The Ruby Room is my personal favorite bar. It is the best kind, a dark red dive bar. While I may refer to it as a shithole I mean it in the best regards. I love this place. Great friendly staff, cheap drinks, specials, pool table, smoking room, DJ, small dance floor, lots of comfortable cushioned red seating and of course upscale bathrooms. Fear not non smokers, it is pretty well ventilated and if you stay at the nice plush long bar you won’t even smell the smoking room.
And NOW they have a Happy Hour from 4pm-9pm every day!
They have a full bar and quite a nice tap selection. Racer 5(my favorite), Stella, Sierra Nevada, Guinness, Back In Black(2nd favorite), Boont Amber Ale, PBR and Ommegang BPA.
They often have random nights with specials for instance one time I came in and was asked “Elvis or David Bowie?” Not really liking either I had to go with Bowie because he was in the Labyrinth and was handed a free drink ticket. My friend who went with Elvis was given a free beer ticket. So we swapped.
If you come here on a week night it is pretty chill, not too crowded, music playing and all. But if you come here on a weekend this place is cracking, people are dancing, and it’s full of characters.
They do have DJ’s but honestly I have no idea what the schedule is so just go.
I can say I do know it’s Metal Tuesdays, Country slower like oldies Sundays? Hip Hop and jammin tunes on weekends?
