RUGGINE, BOLOGNA, ITALY
Tucked away in the centro of Bologna, Ruggine has always had a hand in creating something for the city.
Way back when and years before becoming the bar it is now, the unique shelter-like space was the thriving heartbeat of the city that hosted intimate pop-ups and events for locals and more recently, it was an old bicycle workshop (vintage Italian road bikes strewn across the walls made us ask).
Subtle and nondescript to the hundreds of passing tourists, the narrow streets of Vicolo Alemagna is now home to Bologna’s hidden gem and more importantly our favourite spot in the city - part vintage cocktail bar, part pub.
With it’s stripped back charm and never trying too hard to impress, Ruggine is undoubtedly popular with the locals and those who are in-the-know, so whether it is a slow Sunday session or a bustling Friday night, be sure to visit our friends over at Ruggine.
