The Rainbow Room will open to the public October 2014

The Rainbow Room, New York City’s historic landmark and iconic restaurant and event space atop 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Rockefeller Center®, will open to the public October 2014. Designed by renowned architectural firm Gabellini Sheppard Associates, the space, including its legendary dance floor overlooking the Manhattan skyline, will be restored through a modern lens to once again embody the glamour and elegance reflective of its rich history, yet updated for its future. Montroy Andersen DeMarco serves as executive architect of the project. The Rainbow Room will operate as a combination of catered event space and restaurant that is open to the public Sundays for brunch, as well as dinner Monday evenings and most holidays. A previously vacant outdoor terrace on the 65th floor will connect to an interior space that has been transformed into the cocktail lounge SixtyFive, which will be open to the public five days a week and offers sweeping views of Manhattan. The culinary team is led by Executive Chef Jonathan Wright. Building off the tradition of being a great destination for performances, occasional live entertainment will return to the Rainbow Room as well. For more information, please visit www.rainbowroom.com.
