Best Frozen Margaritas in NYC at Ruby’s Lounge

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Ruby’s Lounge has the best fuckin’ frozen margaritas in NYC! A bold statement, I know, and trust me, it doesn’t matter what you order here, you’re gonna get the goddamn frozen margarita anyway! How do you feel about that?

The first time I went there with my gal, she ordered a whiskey diet and I ordered a bourbon neat. Guess what we got? Two frozen margaritas! (Probably ‘cause the bar tender barely spoke English). And we could not have been any more satisfied! I mean, honestly, when was the last time you had a frozen margarita in the city? That shit is rare! Not only is it rare, but it’s even rarer to get a good one!

We were pleasantly surprised.

I’m sure you can get other drinks at this establishment, but that’s not what I’m writing about. This club may be a very annoying place to any young East Williamsburg/Bushwick hipster. It’s not dim lit, they don’t play an eclectic choice of music, and no one acts the part of “I’m a nice bar tender”  – so don’t expect any special treatment. This is a club for the Puerto Ricans of the neighborhood to play dominos, dance salsa and listen to latin dance music loud. And when Maria is working, she will whip you up a frozen margarita like you’ve never had before! During happy hour those blended treats only cost $4.50, and during the night they are $8.00. And for what they are they are a steal! I’ve become such a fan of them, I’ve become a regular at the joint. Now when I walk into the place I don’t even have to say anything, they just start up the blender.

So, Next time you’re in Bushwick, and feel a little festive, do what I do: go to Ruby’s and get a frozen margarita. And if you know of a better place, PLEASE let me know. I’ll challenge you!

Bobby Rich - Affordable Aficionado

Bobby dropped out of college at the age of 20, said goodbye to his papaw in the small town of Copper Hill, GA, and went to India, where he studied professional pauperism in ashrams and taught English to children. From New Delhi he flew to London, where emigration considered him a "vagabond with no roots to return to", and he was put on the first plane back to America. After finding himself in the freezing snows of Chicago, some guy at a bar offered him a job transporting a car to NYC, where he is currently stuck in Ridgewood, Queens. His travel website The Music Underground has helped many find the obscure in foreign lands.
