The Ruby is a catalyst for creativity and a new home for making art at Duke University.

Now Open!

Open Monday–Friday
11am–2pm & 3–8pm

The Beyu Blue coffee cart is now open in the Ruby lobby. Drop by for coffee, espresso drinks, snacks, and more (accepts card, cash, and DukeCard).

Dorian Bolden, a 2002 Duke graduate and owner of  Beyu Caffè in downtown Durham, opened Beyu Blue in the Bryan Center on West Campus in 2018. We are excited to bring Beyu Blue into the Ruby and transform the lobby into a lively gathering place. Grab a game from the Ruby Lounge to unwind!

“Our name, pronounced ‘be-you,’ reflects our desire to provide a place where everyone feels comfortable just ‘being you.’ We want to be the ultimate community gathering space, and I believe coffee is a great starting point to bring people together.”
