Gem Dandy

Longtime neighborhood-bar patrons can finally rejoice, because the new downtown gem known as the Ruby Room has expanded its calendar of pleasurable events to include local art, awesome DJs, and talented bands seven nights a week.

The good people who brought you the Emerald Lounge have created dive-bar magic once again with The Spins, a buzzworthy new dance weekly filled with hot tracks, cheap drinks, and zero pretense, as DJs Dizzy D and Moss Def spin disco, hip-hop, indie, electro, funk, and soul all night long.
