What it is: Iconic Coney Island boardwalk establishment since 1934.

Why we love it: It feels old-timey and festive, littered with throwback photos of historic Coney Island and Mermaid Parades past. Regulars sing along to Rat Pack hits on the famed jukebox. With over 25 beers, seafood and standard bar fare of burgers and dogs, it’s the perfect place to stop in for drinks and grub after a day of beach and rides. Bring your Coney Island day partner and Cyclone screamer; a grandparent (yours or maybe you can borrow one?) who hasn’t set eyes on the boardwalk in 50 years.

What to order: Ruby’s Amber ale on tap, and a dozen clams.

Regular tip: In 2012, Ruby’s tables, bar, walls and ceiling were renovated using wood from the original 1920’s Coney Island boardwalk; hence the saying, “Ruby’s is the last bar in Coney Island where you can still walk under the original boardwalk!”
