New TwoRuba Bar opens its doors

Urban opulence abounds at the new-look TwoRuba Bar, which will open its doors on 2 September 2014 following a £500k transformation.  Located on the renovated Bankside and set against the backdrop of one of London’s most renowned historical landmarks, Tower Bridge, TwoRuba is just a stone’s throw from up-and-coming Bermondsey. Reflecting the rich contrast of the City with an edgy Bermondsey vibe, TwoRuba offers an understated, laid back destination with a twist of glamour, perfect for post-work professionals, hipsters and locals to meet.  

With Regency-inspired décor coupled with contemporary metal drapery materials, the luxurious design has the exclusive feel of a members’ club and reflects the rich contrast of the local area. The beverage menu also draws inspiration from the locale, known for brewing gin, with TwoRuba Bar offering an extensive list of independent London and Bermondsey Dry Gin cocktails, Champagne cocktails and spirits expertly mixed by a team of mixologists.  

Unveiled as an all-day destination, the all-day dining menu is heavily influenced by produce at nearby Borough Market. Ideal for early morning bites, brunch, through to an evening meal, TwoRuba Bar offers a range of dining options, with a focus on sharing platters and smaller grazing dishes, called ‘Elements’ that can be enjoyed as a light bite or tapas-style. Ingredients are carefully sourced from local producers ensuring top quality food at its freshest, with dishes on the Elements of the Borough menu including pulled pork sliders with chili apple slaw, wings of fire with fennel salsa and piripiri dip, chorizo focaccia with aioli and flash fried king prawns with garlic yuzu emulsion.  

Perhaps the finest jewel in TwoRuba Bar’s crown is the Snug –an intimate area with a traditional, lavish yet relaxed gentlemen’s club feel, suitable for drinks parties for groups of up to 20 people. Elsewhere in the bar, seating is relaxed and non-uniform, comprising of a selection of eclectic sofas, high-backed and sculpted scoop chairs and modular island seating, which combined, create a mix of private and social areas suitable for day and night, work and leisure.  The rich chocolate browns and greys, vibrant copper and warm caramel hues create an opulence that is perfectly complemented by an array of pendant lighting and oversized bulbs that drop down from the ceiling in dramatic form, making a chic urban design statement.  

TwoRuba management team, said, “Spanning the divide between the traditional City of London and the more relaxed, creative Bermondsey, TwoRuba Bar seeks to unite the two, enticing professionals, hipsters, local residents and visitors alike.  Whether it’s for a mid-morning coffee with friends, a working lunch or post-work drinks and nibbles, TwoRuba Bar is a relaxed yet stylish venue to relax and enjoy the very best of London.”
