R Lounge provides a swanky alternative to the Hollywood scene. Its huge, comfortable space is filled with plush furniture, accent candles, couches, and contemporary d?cor, all revolving around a central bar with a cascading glass chandelier. The R's innards are bolstered by live music, DJs, and plenty of room to move about while holding a mug of beer ($6) in one hand, a brand-free well drink ($9)??such as a gin and tonic or gin and gin??in the other, and a premium cocktail or straight shooter ($12), such as Absolut and Bombay Sapphire, in another.
