Sixty Five at the Rainbow Room
New York City-Midtown Manhattan
May 11, 2018
This place is magnificent. Perched up to the 65th Floor of world famous 30 Rockefeller Plaza is the Rainbow Room, a glorious NYC venue with a rich history that reaches back to 1934. Previously run by the Cipriani family, the space has been empty for a bit and has now been gorgeously restored to its former Art Deco glory. There’s a dining room, but currently this operates as a private event space and is only open to the public on Sunday and Monday, but it’s the cocktail bar – now known as Sixty Five – which is the real draw. It’s quite a looker, with amazing10-foot windows with stunning views out towards the park on the north and the Empire State and Freedom Tower to the south. The whole place drips history despite the sensitive makeover. There are quality cocktails and a chic New York crowd but it’s the views that seal the deal, as they’re some of the most gorgeous in all of Manhattan, the city at its best and most iconic. The venue is only open Monday through Friday and smart dress is encouraged – it’s that kind of place.
