Ruby’s Bar & Grill to close

Posted on | November 3, 2010 | 2 Comments

In a further show of developer’s inability to mix the old & the new Ruby’s (1213 Riegelmann Boardwalk) will be shuttered for good in 2 weeks.  It’s already closed for the season, but it’ll never open again.  I reviewed it back in August & I can honestly say that I’m really going to miss this place.  It was my designated pre-Brooklyn Cyclones game drink spot & I loved the mean old bartenders & insanely inexpensive drinks.  Coney Island favorite, Shoot The Freak, has also bit the dust.  A real shame.  Grub Street reports that 9 businesses didn’t make the cut & that Ruby’s will be replaced by a sports bar.  Great.

    […] The bartenders are all ‘adults’, don’t chat to you (unless you’re a local) & are VERY heavy-handed (that whiskey pictured above was twice the size…) when it comes to shots.  My kinda place!  If you’re fancying a trip to the beach (not that much summer left!), try out Ruby’s.  With the Coney Island development project looming, God knows how long this place will be there for… Update; Ruby’s is now Closed.
