Two Ruba is Southwark’s latest, hottest night spot. That is, 5 More London Place becomes a hot night spot after a busy day catering to hungry Londoners searching south of the river for breakfast or lunch that doesn’t forgo the luxurious touch. The man responsible for this foodie haven’s offering is Hilton London Tower Bridge executive chef Vernon Strachan, whose small plates of reinvented international street foods take their cues from the cornucopia to be found at the nearby Borough Markets. Diminutive but delectable, match a plate or three to one (or two) from Two Ruba’s extensive drinks menu, which includes old and new world wines and innovative cocktails.
Hilton London Tower Bridge executive chef Vernon Strachan has come on board at
Two Ruba, a new, opulent but understated bar that can be found at 5 More London
Place in Southwark, bringing his small plate masterpieces to the table. These plates,
inspired by the nearby Borough Market’s wealth of produce and epitomised by Two
Ruba’s evening menu, bring together examples of street food from around the world,
adding a distinctive twist to dishes such as Two Ruba’s Wings of Fire or their
fish tacos with pico de gallo and citrus dressing. All are perfectly complemented by
a glass chosen from Two Ruba’s old and new world wine selection, or a twisted
classic, Pommery Champagne or Two Ruba Signature cocktail from a list
that is very long indeed.
While Two Ruba regularly caters to Southwark’s power breakfasters, working lunchers, or dining couples, they also host private parties in their incomparably glamorous surrounds. Such gatherings book out what Two Ruba calls The Snug, a separate lounge space where parties of up to 25 people are treated to a personal DJ and mixologist duo, tailored sharing menus and drink packages. With such stellar credentials, Two Ruba at 5 More London Place is rapidly becoming a hot spot for knowledgeable City of London cocktail connoisseurs and food aficionados.
