view of times square

Last Friday, my husband and I had a reason to celebrate.  (No Mom, I’m not pregnant). I had read about this bar that overlooked times square and it didn’t scream “impossible to get into” to me.  We had some Midtown errands to run so I figured we should give it a try.

The R Lounge is located in the Renaissance hotel on the 2nd floor.  We arrived on the early side with our only competition being tourists so I figured “we got this”.  We scored a window table and the review was right – this bar is very much worth the view – even for a local the view mesmerizing.
