The Rainbow Room is among the highest venues in New York City. It finds its home 65 stories above the landmark Rockefeller Center. This timeless New York icon crowns Manhattan’s skyline and offers a modern twist on classic old-world charm, tailoring special moments for private events and Sunday brunch. Rainbow Room first debuted in 1934 and has drawn the world’s elite to its curated, elevated and glamorous luxury.

When it opened originally the venue was operating as a formal supper club, but quickly became a New York City’s entertainment focal point.  In 2012 The New York Landmarks Preservation Commission declared Rainbow Room a New York City landmark. There are only a few interior landmarks like this in New York City, which makes it even more special.

Rainbow Room’s name was inspired by the installation of a color organ that automatically converted music into changing colors in harmony with the moods expressed by the music. To mirror this effect, crystal curtains were added to the newly restored Rainbow Room to create a light shimmering veil at the windows without hindering the view.
