Bringing back the speak easy style at Rob Ruben’s Distilling and Brewing in El Segundo

No secret passwords are necessary for ROB RUBENS DISTILLERY AND BREWERY speakeasy themed tasting room. Opened in a repurposed mid-century brick building in El Segundo’s Smoky Hollow district last June, RRDB is South Bay’s only purveyor of fine spirits and brews. Owner Rob Ruben’s lineage is his inspiration. His great grandfather and family organized the Royal Theatre Company, who in 1926 constructed the Joliet, Illinois landmark, Rubens Rialto Square Theatre, a popular hangout of gangster Al Capone and his buddies.
