Discover
the Lounge

R Lounge inspires through its balance of the unexpected – there’s a sense of relaxation at our NYC restaurant in contrast to the high-level energy just outside its windows overlooking Times Square. You’ll find a mix of old and new in design and feel, as well as a contrast in the mix between local New Yorkers and first-time visitors. Each space within R Lounge has its own one-of-a-kind feel, not unlike Times Square, where every block is different, but unified by color and light. The view from our popular restaurant frames the city streets through wraparound windows in every direction. Just as the city’s energy is always evolving, so is the mood in R Lounge, which changes throughout the day, for every visitor.
