“Best cocktails in Copenhagen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Feels like being in someone's really cool apartment - with brilliant bartenders and delicious drinks.

Everything here was top-notch, from the old style interiors to the great atmosphere both behind and in front of the bar. Friendly, serviceminded staff too. We'll definitely go there next time we're in Copenhagen.

Forget about standard cocktails , here you just seat and relax in this old style bar, you will be asked what your are up to, and a tailor made drink will be prepared for you! Amazing! Must go

“Feels like a private home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Really nice, beautiful interior - feels like a private home or hidden club in the 1920's. GREAT staff, friendly, fun and they remember your orders. Table service, which quite hard to find in Copenhagen. Cozy courtyard.

“Awesome cocktails, Cool place, Great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Ruby's is my favorite cocktail bar in Copenhagen. It's hard to find if you have never been there before because it is a few steps up from street level. The sign on the door says it's the Georgian Embassy so it can be hard to find. It's like that on purpose to keep the average passerby from knowing about it, but once you know about it, you'll never just pass by. If you go early and it's not busy and you are interested in a speciality made just for you, the bartenders will ask you what your favorite ingredients are and make you a cocktail based on that. They also have a nice menu to pick from if you prefer to do it that way. Cocktails are about $20/each but on Copenhagen standards, that is normal. The people are into mixology, they make their own syrups, and they are always experimenting with new combos and ingredients. This place is awesome and the atmosphere is cool. There are couches, the bar, a courtyard, and other cozy corners so great for a date or a group. If you go too late, you may have to wait in line. They dont let it get super crowded inside, which is also a plus if you are there early. :)
