Rainbow Room graciously accommodates 300 guests for a seated dinner and 250 guests for a seated dinner with dancing. The Rainbow Room name was inspired by the installation of an RCA color organ that automatically converted music into changing colors in harmony with the moods expressed by the music. When music was played, concealed color lights would project across the room’s dome and illuminate the dance floor.

Floor-to-ceiling windows, adorned with curtains made of real Preciosa crystals from the Czech Republic, create a breathtaking sight on their own while offering sprawling views of Manhattan. Though recently updated, the renovation preserved the landmark features of the venue, including the four platforms and their gorgeous crystal balusters, the regal crystal chandelier that serves as the focal point of the room, the 30-foot diameter rotating parquet dance floor, and the dramatic staircase that leads to the entertainers’ balcony. 

This luxurious venue guarantees that couples will feel on top of the world during their special day.
