Brides-to-be, if The Ruby Tap doesn’t ring a bell – listen up. The Ruby Tap is a cozy, casual spot featuring wines on tap, self-service wine machines, and local Wisconsin beers, cheeses, meats, and desserts; located in Wauwatosa.
In other words: a perfect setting for a bridal shower or bachelorette party.
“For bachelorette parties, it’s nice that people can choose whatever wine they want and not have to get a full glass or bottle since everyone has different tastes,” said Brooke, co-owner of The Ruby Tap.
It’s a great location for the start of a bachelorette party because girls can open gifts there while enjoying snacks and wine, before heading out for the rest of the night.
For a bridal shower, The Ruby Tap offers food packages and a place for the group to eat and relax for presents.
“Bridal showers love it here because they have the place to themselves,” Brooke said. “Lots of food, great wine and a relaxing space. We’ve had groups that have stayed for hours past the shower just hanging out for the day.”
