Set in front of K City Plaza, a small shopping centre with 40 or so shops, Rubi’s is the largest of the food offerings in Wuse 2. It’s a a steel-roofed bar and grill that’s open-fronted and entirely outdoors. An array of fans keep the heat at bay. It’s set across three raised sections with a pizza and shwarma kitchen at one end, with views of the street beyond.
Rubi’s is quiet during the day and has a fairly comprehensive menu of both continental and Nigerian dishes with generous portions at reasonable prices (between N2500 to N4000). Nollywood soap operas grace the televisions inside. The food is not exceptional, but it’s a good setting and tasty enough. In the evening, the bar comes alive with a good range of premium spirits such as Grey Goose. For a wine bar, the range is small with three reds (two French, one Spanish) and a slightly larger range of champagnes to choose from.
The bar hosts a karaoke night on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, but outside of that, it makes a good spot to sit, maybe indulge in a shisha, or sip a glass of red and watch the traffic shouts and bustle of the streets. The crowd is a mix of upmarket Abujans and a smattering of foreign businessmen. Music tends to be a mix of R&B, naija hits, and hip-hop. Things start to heat up on the weekends around 6 p.m., normally shutting when the last person leaves at 2-3 a.m.
