ABOUT RAINBOW ROOM:
Quintessential New York glamour finds its home 65 stories above Rockefeller Center. Crowning the Manhattan skyline, the iconic Rainbow Room offers a modern twist on classic old-world charm, tailoring special moments for private events, Sunday Brunch and unforgettable evenings of live entertainment. Since its debut in 1934, Rainbow Room has drawn the world's elite to its curated, elevated and glamorous luxury. First operating as a formal supper club, the venue quickly became a New York City entertainment focal point. 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. In 2012, the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission declared Rainbow Room a New York City Landmark. Rainbow Room is one of very few interior landmarks found in New York City.
