R2L’s Skyline Views Featured in Showtime’s “The Circus”

r2ls-skyline-views-featured-showtimes-circusFor any restaurant, the recognition and praise that goes into high-end event planning and private dining often goes largely unnoticed. Yet during the Democratic National Convention, viewers of Showtime’s “The Circus” were given a rare opportunity to witness the elegance and striking views from R2L with a few high-profile guests.

In episode 17 of the new Showtime series about the inner workings of the current political climate, conventions, and elections, Mark Halperin and Mark McKinnon dine with former Clinton advisor James Carville and former Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers in the William Penn room.

You can watch the clip filmed at R2L here.

After all the politically-charged activities of the week, guests were anticipating a chance to relax, imbibe, and create unforgettable memories at R2L and our fully booked week of private events exceeded their expectations. R2L was where the high-profile attendees of the DNC came to dine. You’ll want to be where the excitement is for the next citywide event and so will your guests.
