The wound that Portland Variety’s departure left on King West hasn’t fully healed, but a replacement is already prepping to open in its place.

Ruby Soho Bar, described as a “relaxed neighbourhood bar and eatery,” will soon take over the space at 587 King Street West.

The spot’s Instagram account is still pretty barren, offering only a few images of graphics and a bio that reads “COMING SOON.”

Restauranteur Alexander Ross posted to his Instagram indicating the establishment is seeking new hires, and those interested can contact the business or Ross through their respective Instagram accounts.

But while King West is a booming area, every rose has its thorn.

Portland Variety has left some pretty big shoes to fill, so here’s hoping that Ruby Soho is up for the challenge.
