The Ruby L’otel celebrated its first birthday in winter fashion last week
Decorated in a Winter Wonderland theme, Ruby’s trappings included snow, polar bears, an Absolut ice sculpture and après-attired hostesses. When the chilling temperature became too much for some party-goers, to warm up, a few of them hopped into the Red Bull portable hot tub located in Ruby’s beautifully renovated beer garden.
