1The Concept Bar

Nybrogade 10 1203 København K

Located in the oldest area of Copenhagen, Ruby is easy to miss. From the outside, you’ll see a tall, smart building which appears to be entirely unassuming, however, step inside and you’ll be transported back in time. Ruby is a bar like no other – it is styled as a 1920’s Gentlemen’s Club, with rich leather furniture, dim lighting and an enchanting atmosphere.

Ruby can only be discovered by word of mouth, which adds to its quintessentially secretive and exclusive theme. More importantly, expect to sample some of the most irresistible cocktails in the city!
