Rubicon- Surbiton

A bar that I’ve been meaning to write about for a while is a little gem that’s tucked behind Surbiton high street down Maple Road. Rubicon is a small cocktail bar which is a great place for somewhere that’s a bit different to what you’d usually find in the area.

Cocktails are their speciality, with bartender cocktails such as your classic ‘sex on the beach’ being served with a more suburban twist; these are priced at £6.50 each, so the bar isn’t cheap- make sure you come out with plenty in your purse! If you fancy something a bit more special, champagne cocktails such as ‘strawberry sky’ are available for £7. They have an extensive wine list with an average bottle of wine priced at £15 each.

We pre- booked a section of the bar for a birthday with a party of 20 people, which was provided free of charge with no hassle. The bar manager was very attentive and made sure that we had everything that we needed to enjoy our evening. We didn’t order any food, however there is an impressive looking party buffet menu available, making this the perfect place to hire out for a party.

Rubicon also offers themed evenings during the week including comedy nights, supper club and cocktail club; check the website for details of particular events.

The bar does get pretty full on a Saturday night before people go off clubbing in nearby Kingston, so I recommend going early. Overall I think this is a great place to go for a drink without the hustle and bustle of Kingston party goers, but is also a bit livelier than some of the pubs in Surbiton high street, the perfect balance.
