Let's Talk Red Ruby

Ian Cordero is the marketing director of Red Ruby Club – the newly revamped, electronic and live music club in Petitenget. He’s from Venice Beach, California and he’s ready to push the indoor/outdoor venue up a notch in both style and sounds.
So Ian, tell me about the Red Ruby, what’s it all about?
Red Ruby is an upscale nightclub with a focus on the most modern trends in music, namely house, techno, hip hop. We have 10 VIP tables, state of the art sound and lighting to suit each event and create an atmosphere that is both fun and comfortable. We have hosted some of the best local parties such as the Independence Day collective face-off between Panorasuna from Jakarta vs PNNY from Bali, as well as some really cool international festival launch parties such as Pacha Festival!
What have you been doing personally before now?
I worked in marketing for about 10 years in the corporate world, ranging from merchandising for sporting goods stores to the medical field. I also own an IT company out of Laguna Beach, CA. In college I did a lot of promoting for different night clubs but really this is my first real night club marketing director gig. I took a couple of years off and traveled, snowboarding is a passion of mine so I spent the past couple of years here on the island for six months and snowboarding the rest of the time. But now I have moved full time to Bali as a partner and marketing director in this venture.
Will you be bringing international DJs to town or sticking to a more local content?
Right now, in the club, we have both expat and local DJs weekly but we also have some big international acts for September. We have Eli Escobar, Uner, and a really cool Jakarta Indonesian live act called Sunmantra. In October we have Klangkuester, James What, Trust Me, and in November we have some really cool special guests that we’d really like to remain under wraps for now…
And how about the live music side, what do you have in store?
We have some amazing local talent, Bar Dogs, Made Mawut, and Abe Rivaba, these guys are all great musicians in their own right, from classic rock to blues and soul!

When is the live music on? What time and where?
Tuesday to Thursday from 8-11pm on The Terrace out the front. Dinner and music essentially. DJs are on the Terrace Friday and Saturday from 9-1am.
So what kind of special drink promos do you have at Red Ruby?
On the terrace we have Happy Hours”daily from 5-8pm – buy one get one free on drinks, as well as Sunday all day! In the club we have Vodka Hours from 11pm-1am, which is a promo on vodka Redbulls 70k, vodka soda/juice 60k, and lemon drop shots 50k. Bottle specials for Vodka Hours are 800k for Smirnoff and 1.2 for Grey Goose.
Sounds awesome. Any last words?
‘The Red Ruby Chain’ The official Red Ruby membership comes in the form of this pretty damn cool looking chain.
Membership at Red ruby entitles you to the following: Free Entry for + 1 to every RED RUBY event, 10% off all drinks at Red Ruby, and priority options on VIP tables for all events.
So.. How do you get a chain?
There is only a limited number available on a first come first served basis. 
Chains are available to purchase at the door for any Red Ruby event. For a small fee of Rp 400k you’ll receive a chain, free entry that night and a free drink on arrival. 
Your chain will be activated immediately and you’ll be able to use its benefits from then on. Get in quick before they’re all gone…
