RUYI and LYN
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Though inspired by the speakeasy concept, RUYI and LYN is too big to be considered as one. Yes, getting there can be tricky as it’s quite obscure – go up to the fourth floor where City Golf is, head towards the restroom and you’d see the sign at the end of the hallway – but it’s a huge multi-space venue that packs in a bar, a lounge, a cigar room, several private dining rooms complete with karaoke, a secluded balcony and a restaurant.
This ambitious venture by The Oriental Group of Restaurants marks a huge departure from the company’s usual classic Chinese look and feel. But judging from first impressions, it looks set to attract a younger hip and urban crowd. RUYI and LYN is swanky and modern. The interior is design driven featuring rich dark palettes and very chic designer furniture, plus it’s roomy. It’s a cool space that encourages you to just take your time and chill.
