One of the first things you’ll notice as you enter  RU-CO Bar is a very creative wall, showcasing a vast array of fine wines. Add to this the sand-like sculptures positioned strategically behind the bar—a modern design—and you have yourself an oh-so-perfect date bar.

With ‘date-appropriate’ lighting, you have an array of seating to choose from. The bar stools are ideal for those who are keen to get down to business and work their way through the cocktail list. (We highly suggest the martinis.) The cosy couches allow secluded interaction. Alternatively, you may choose a private area that is conveniently positioned in front of the fire.  Ideal for a  winter date where you have the perfect excuse to cuddle up in front of the fire.  Come summer RU-CO is still the ideal date bar for those looking for a touch of elegance.
