Rainbow Room, New York City's historic landmark and iconic restaurant atop 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Rockefeller Center, has reopened to the public after being closed for the past five years.
Operating as a combination restaurant and event space, Rainbow Room is open Sundays for brunch and Monday evenings and most holidays for dinner. Private events can also be booked during the week.
Designed by Gabellini Sheppard Associates (GSA), the space, including its legendary dance floor, has been restored to "once again embody the glamour and elegance reflective of its rich history." Montroy Andersen DeMarco, who served as executive architect of the project, along with GSA, worked to preserve the signature landmarked design elements, including the crystal chandelier and wall sconces, in accordance with the guidelines set by the New York City Landmarks Commission. The restaurant's signature platforms, crystal and brass railings from its original 1934 design, have been retained, while new touches include enlarged windows and crystal curtains that add elegance to the space while refracting rainbow-like colors during the day and blending with the Manhattan skyline after dark.
