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.
The service left so much to be desired and the prices of course are exactly what you’d expect of a tourist trap, except for one item; the fried chicken on the menu is from Blue Ribbon which is always worth the money.
