NYC Event Venue Oozes Celebrity Style for Big Parties and Private Functions

At the R Lounge at Two Times Square, Events Are as Spectacular as the View

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2014) - Everyone loves a good party, whether it's a glittering New Year's Eve bash, or a cosmopolitan corporate gathering. But few places can pull off both types of celebration -- and everything in between -- with as much polish and pizazz as the R Lounge at Two Times Square. Located within the luxuriously appointed Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel, the bar's renowned culinary team, sizzling lineup of summertime events and incomparable views all combine for one of the most original and desirable event venues in New York City.

One look at the space reveals its potential. Outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, textural wood and glass finishes and a vibrant palette of creams, browns and tangerine, the lounge serves as the perfect backdrop to any number of events, from cocktail receptions to business lunches, fashion events to corporate dinners. Plus its flexible configuration, which accommodates groups ranging in size from 15 to 300 guests, only adds to its appeal among premier NYC event venues.

It's no wonder then that the bar already boasts an impressive lineup of events this summer. Guests arriving for a handcrafted cocktail -- and a special summer menu features a mouthwatering assortment of choices like Cucumber Vodka Lemonade and fresh-squeezed orange juice mixed with triple sec and vodka -- can settle in for one of the live music performances scheduled throughout the coming months.

But as one of the most stylish choices among bars in Times Square, the R Lounge has earned a reputation for throwing one of the best New Year's Eve parties in the world. Its panoramic views of Times Square ensure that guests get a front-row seat for the famous ball drop. And with plenty of event experience under its belt, the bar and lounge ensure a good time is had by all. Hors d'oeuvres; a dinner reception; sweet stations; gift bags; a butler-passed breakfast; and a full, premium open bar complement the dancing and music that ring in each New Year.

From spectacular bashes like those held on New Year's Eve, to regular live-music performances, to personalized private events, the R Lounge transcends other Times Square bars to offer a multifaceted event experience. How guests choose to take advantage of that remains, tantalizingly, up to them.
