Last evening I decided to enjoy a happy hour specialty cocktail with some friends at the Republic Reign lounge located a few blocks from my hotel on Upper King Street.  This was the first time I had been to this location since it was renovated from the old Chai’s Bar. When you first walk  in and turn the corner from the draped curtain entrance way, the space opens up to dramatic mirrored walls, a bright blue couch and a huge image of a woman covering an entire wall. It feels very sleek, sophisticated and modern.

Not only is the interior electrifying, but so is the bar menu! I tried the Lyte Ray cocktail, while my friends sipped on a Perfect 10 Mojito and the Pink Gin Libations.  We didn’t stay past happy hour, but the DJ table indicates to me that this bar gets very exciting at night. Plus, after 10:30pm, the blue couch becomes bottle service! I would love to come celebrate my birthday here and feel VIP!  I can’t wait until their outside area opens up this summer – This bar is definitely going to be a popular night spot!
