Ruggine is a shelter, hidden in an alley in the heart of Bologna.
It is close to one of the most prominent squares of the city, where once a calash warehouse then a bicycle workshop stood. Now it’s where we deliver our good vibes and signature cocktails!
Ruggine is not only a bar made by people in love with their work: in 2017, Ruggine begins a new adventure opening Ragū: a shop with traditional takeaway kitchen and then expanded with Erre Lab; a fresh past lab. that allows a greater production capacity for both the kitchen and the bar.
Ragū & Draft, is the last project of “Ruggine’s gang”. This kiosk provide an unique selection of artigianal homemade draft cocktails and a cool street food and traditional pasta.
