“We wanted to create a fun, unexpected oasis to transport guests to a tropical destination in the middle of Manhattan,” says Rockefeller Center’s managing director EB Kelly. “What better way to surprise and delight than with specialty tiki cocktails and tropically-inspired dishes overlooking the evening skyline?”
At the pop-up, which is located in Rainbow Room’s Gallery Bar, guests can enjoy sweeping, unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline while sipping on creative cocktails, such as the orchid-topped Coco-Cockatoo or the Smoke on the Rock, which is aptly complete with a finishing touch of smoke. Guests can also enjoy tropical themed dishes, such as a Hawaiian pizza, fried-tofu banh mi and a coconut-frosted rum cake. Menu items have been curated by Rainbow Room’s and Bar SixtyFive’s executive chef Mathew Woolf. Bar SixtyFive is a lounge associated with Rainbow Room, which is a private dining space that also has a space dubbed 620 Loft & Garden.
