Outside seating at Rubens
Save

I read awhile back that there was a squabble over who owned the land where the outside seating is/was at Rubens. Has this ever been settled and is there still outside seating there ? We always enjoyed eating breakfast there and made a choice to only eat at places with outside seating.

Nope. And probably won't be.

The good news is since they opened the wall all the way to the back (including where the bathroom was) that whole side is like sitting outside.

Tom...so that side has a roof but no wall opening onto where the tables used to be outside? Having a hard time picturing this.

Sorry!! 🤪🤪

The wall circled here is gone. https://photos.app.goo.gl/irJYcfTf9ek8CHN57

So the tables are set up right where it used to be and one chair is inside, the opposite one is "outside" on where that ledge is. (Its extended a bit)

Trying to find a pic I took or have ricky send me one....

Reuben's had solo musicians when we visited in Nov/Dec. Right in front of the restroom door. Actually looked like they played in a spot that may have been one before. Of course that we before the land dispute. They may need that space for the displaced outdoor tables or the bar that was out there as well. They did mention on FB about working on building upstairs, Not sure about any Happy Hour.

I absolutely LOVE when Tom takes a picture and then circles something, or puts an arrow here or a number there. Always clears stuff up. :)

Looks like the neighbors are clearing the lot for something.

Happy hour specials are still on but no music right now. He is working on a rooftop palapa and will start music again then.
