In midtown Manhattan, the Living Room Lounge pays homage to the Times Squares of old with its eclectic decor, handcrafted cocktails, and beats from the city’s freshest DJs. The perfect place for a pre-Broadway show cocktail, this midtown bar is located in the former Times Square. But don’t let the history fool you. While it may not be as famous as Times Square, it still packs a punch.
The terms living room and lounge are often used interchangeably, but have different origins. A lounge is typically a large, public room with adjoining washrooms. The term dates back to the sixteenth century, when it meant to move indolently, but eventually evolved into a noun. Today, the living room is a private space used primarily by the family. But whether you’re talking about a pub, cocktail bar, or council estate, you can’t help but notice that both words share similar meanings.
