Ruby's Bar & Grill
Ruby's is a Coney Island institution that has gone through as many ups-and-downs in the last few years as riders on the Cyclone do. There was a fear that Ruby's would need to close due to rent issues in 2012 and while the owners of Ruby's signed a new lease last summer, then, of course, Hurricane Sandy struck. Yikes. Luckily, all of these problems seem to be in the past, which means you should take advantage of the fact that Ruby's is still up and running and has barely changed from when it first opened in 1975. It's a spot that was made for day drinking. I mean, you're on the beach. Have some cold ones and stare off into the ocean. It's infinite. And so it's terrifying. It's always good to scare yourself a little when you're day drinking. Keeps you on your toes.
