To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Kick down the fence and drink from the sprinkler with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale drinks at R Lounge in Studio City. There is no cover charge.
R Lounge provides a swanky alternative to the Hollywood scene. Its huge, comfortable space is filled with plush furniture, accent candles, couches, and contemporary décor, 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.
Not valid with any other offers. You must use the value of the Groupon in one trip.
- Bottle service comes to the Valley (yes, really) via this dark, minimalist Studio City club with plenty of banquettes perched over the dance floor and sleek bar – Zagat
- I liked the bar the best, which was the focal point of the place. The bar is wrapped in black crocodile leather and the bartenders were super nice and attentive. – Joy B., Yelp
