Carlos Melia at the Rainbow Room

Sunday Brunch in Manhattan along my partner Rubin Singer and my dear friend Michael Romei, took place at the iconic and famous upscale rooftop restaurant and events space, the Rainbow Room. Located at the 65th floor of the NBC Tower, atop the 30 Rockefeller Plaza. I was so excited to explore and experience Rainbow Room, influenced by many stories of such unique New York landmark. We had a lovely afternoon celebrating the end my my Birthday week.

An icon of timeless style, the stunning Rainbow Room has continued to amaze guests for over 70 years. With its famed chandelier, historic decor, and jaw-dropping views of Manhattan, Rainbow Room promises an experience that is quintessentially New York. Recently refurbished to its original grandeur, this landmark venue is now open again for Sunday brunch and Monday night entertainment.

As you arrive to the 65th floor, and walk by the host desk, the first room you will see is the Bar, with your first take on breathtaking panoramic views of Manhattan. From there, you will be escorted to the left wing and main room, were you will enjoy a lovely Brunch experience on a bird-eye experience or Manhattan.
