NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2013) - Visitors to New York City are often overwhelmed by their options, from where to eat and shop to what to do and see. Guests of the Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel have it lucky, however, as the trendy Times Square hotel is host to its own calendar of unique experiences and events.

March kicked off another season of must-experience events at the R Lounge bar, offering a panoramic view of Times Square along with a menu of specialty cocktails and delicious fare.

April will hopefully bring warm weather to complement the hot happenings at this New York City boutique hotel. On April 18th, jam along to jazz music from Craig Handy & 2nd Line Smith. DJ Vex will have guests dancing the night away on April 25th, when he drops well-loved dance beats on the ones and twos. April also gives visitors a taste of some of the best whiskey and wine, with tastings on the 9th and 23rd, respectively. Guests can head to lobby between 7 and 9pm for a sip and sample.
