Ruby Rabbit Relaunch VIP Party Attracts Hip Crowd 300 +, by Eva Rinaldi - 8th September 2011

The name Ruby Rabbit has been known to the Sydney in-crowd for about 5 years, but now thanks to tonight's successful relaunch, the popular venue is back on everyone's lips, and is quite the talk of the town.

“Sexy and elegant, the newly renovated and re-launched Ruby Rabbit features a blend of bygone and contemporary furnishings across three levels,” shared an in-house Ruby Rabbit insider.

For the uninitiated 'The Rabbit', now easy found due to new pink neon sign, is at 231 Oxford Street, just 50 metres up the road from Taylor Square.

When they said re-launch, they meant it, with a complete refit - bars, walls, ceiling, all the decor...the whole box and dice. Don't get us wrong...the original was great, but there's nothing like a make over to get up with the times.

Renee Schembri is the hostess with the mostest, and early reports indicate she did a stunning job.

Schembri shared “The ground floor eatery combines custom antique, floral rusted wrapping mirrors and cages with a diorama filled bar front. "Ascend the stairs to the level one nightclub and find yourself in a land like a page torn from a Dr. Seuss book.

“Lounge on the lounges or look up to see a topsy-turvy world suspended from the ceiling all while enjoying the roaming dance space.”

Then: “Continue up the stairs, the home of the Ruby Rabbit cocktail floor, a fantastic meld of baroque and hyper modern.”

The Ruby Rabbit promotional blurb reads...

Ruby Rabbit is Oxford streets newest and hottest nightclub destination, a trendsetting party unlike any other. It promises to immerse the expected into the unknown.

The second floor Nightclub at the Rabbit offers a décor that expertly blends the bold theme with the upscale standards guests continue to only imagine.
