What People are Saying

We pride ourselves in providing Downtown St Petersburg with some of the Bay's best music 7 nights a week.

  • Ruby's features live jazz and blues five nights a week, music that becomes the point of the lounge instead of just another decorative element. Get the band playing, and Ruby's becomes a raucous, vibrant spot that pulls people in from the sidewalks to join the crowd.

  • The bands always rock, Melanie our waitress is spectacular! She always keeps our glasses full and remembers what we like. The boys like to sit outside at the cafe tables and smoke their cigars from Central Cigars.
    Sarah // UrbanSpoon
  • This is one of the only spots where one can find premier jazz...without a cover charge. Local musicians often stop by every Monday and play popular tunes.
