chilled out hangout – the bartenders could be friendlier but this place is still cool. miss the jukebox. but there's pool and good specials and occasionally free shrimp or oysters.
Low-key sophistication draws locals and bohemians to this charmingly odd hang-out. – The Scene
Housed in the Royal Street Inn (a fancy name for a bar with a couple of rooms to rent), the R Bar sports a particularly unique blend of low-key sophistication and bohemian-grunge bonhomi. This place sports an odd amalgam of '50s-style appointments and a spare couch-and-pool-table feng shui layout. It's a popular attraction for Marigny residents, Frenchmen Street stragglers, smug see-and-be-seen slummers, the occasional rock star and locals.
Notable for a general lack of pretense to either trendy eccentricity or hip hidden-secret status. The R Bar boasts one of the most agreeable vibes in town--almost an anti-vibe, really. Sure, it's something of a hipster hangout, but that's an accident of fate rather than a consequence of design; it's really just a neighborhood hangout at heart, and comes across its popularity subtly and naturally.
