The legendary and romantic Rainbow Room has re-opened, for dinner and dancing to a live orchestra, or just cocktails. Either way, you get to enjoy the spectacular 360-degree view of NYC from the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Center.
The Rainbow Room was shuttered for five years, while it’s new landlord decided what to do with it. Lucky for us, Tishman Speyer decided to renovate and reopen it.
The photo is what the Rainbow Room looked like in 1934, when it opened atop what was then known as the RCA Building.
The Rainbow Room is not exactly NYC on the Cheap, but it’s a great splurge for a birthday, anniversary or other special event.
The Sixty Five Bar, the Rainbow Room bar and outdoor terrace, is open to the public Monday to Friday, 5 PM to midnight.
The main dining room and dance floor is open to the public on Mondays only and for Sunday brunch. The rest of the time, it is for private events.
Here’s the NY Times article and a slideshow about the Rainbow Room’s new look and new life.
