Costa Mesa, CA – 3,875 square feet
Ruby's is a Southern California institution famous for its burgers, shakes and classic American comfort food served up in a 40's style diner. Hoping to stay relevant for a new generation of guests the owner decided to move the design up a few decades to the "post-Sputnik, pre-acid" 1960's. This new design re-creates the food, the feel, and the service of the Los Angeles coffee shops of that era with their Googie-style motif – complete with lava lamps, a Sputnik clock, amoeba-shaped cutouts and circle patterns.
