A great place to see if you're in New York. Best to make a reservation, a group of us had dinner and drinks, great service and lovely food. The drinks are a bit pricey but it's worth it for the fabulous view.

We visited the rainbow room and it was awesome. Views were fabulous and the drinks were good. Don’t expect bargain prices but your sitting on top of New York so this is not the place to price shop. MAKE A RESERVATION! We did and we were taken right up in the elevator.

RAINBOW ROOM, NYC

Located 800 feet above the ground on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Rockefeller Center, the iconic Rainbow Room is one of the best places in New York City for views of The Empire State Building, Central park and the surrounding cityscape to include the Statue of Liberty off in the distance. There is an outside balcony perfect for photo opportunities that will capture all that the view has to offer. I suggest making a reservation no matter when you go but you can grab a cocktail in the bar without one. Open for lunch and dinner and a brunch that is unlike anything I have ever seen or tasted. The Rainbow Room is not a restaurant that you typically eat at often, it’s more of place that you go to for a special event or celebration. It’s extremely pricey, but the food is delicious, the décor is stunning and the view is incomparably breathtaking.

Skip the line for the Top of the Rock and head up to the Rainbow Room's Gallery Bar for incredible views and a seasonal cocktail. We were there on a Friday night for the Harvest Moon Pop-Up Bar adjacent to Bar SixtyFive. A stunning way to experience New York's skyline!

Visiting from the UK with friends we where advised to drop into the rainbow rooms. We didn’t plan on going to top of the rock and thought we would happily pay $20 for the views. Upon arriving we where greeted by two lovely gentlemen and advised us to put our coats in the cloak room and any bags (all for free). We then took the lift upto the floor. As soon as you exit the loft and turn left the views just hit you. Took my breath away. We where disappointed that the terrace was closed but still got some fantastic photos. We all opted for cocktail or which yes are a bit pricey, but who cares. They all tasted fabulous. Would most definitely come back but would book a table. Food smelt amazing
