We tried the pop up Bae Bar in the Gallery of the Rainbow Room. The cocktails were very high quality, the service was prompt and friendly, and the salmon platter was a good surprise, and great value for the money. Prices are NYC usual ($18-20 for a cocktail), but this is a special place, and is worth it for a special evening out.

my girlfriend said this was the best birthday she has had in a while. it was unfortunate we couldn’t see the view because of the view. so it calls for another trip back. the quinoa sliders were amazing. not being a fan of wine, I sure enjoyed my choice and my girlfriends as well!!!!

The place had hardly any people, so it was surprising how incredibly slow the service was. Great view and ambiance. I only had a drink, so cannot comment on the food.

View spectacular but tables placed in front of solid concrete panels made it difficult to enjoy unless standing up. Food was exceptional, especially the small plates. We will come back next time we are in NYC.

The autumn pop up bar at the rainbow room was nothing short of spectacular. The views are incredible, even on rainy nights. The food was delicious, the drinks were fall themed and wonderful. The service, was great, as expected. The whole experience was perfect from the moment we arrived at check in until we left. Would definitely recommend!

We had the best time at the Harvest Moon popup bar. It was a perfect place to spend the last evening of our honeymoon. The space was beautifully decorated, the drinks were fun, gorgeous & seasonal. And don’t forget, that view!! It’s a bit spendy but totally worth it.

Fall Pop up bar was amazing. The view was amazing & very romantic. Flowers on the table were lovely. The champagne w/ maple syrup was wonderful. Everyone else enjoyed their wine. We ordered slowly. Started with the short rib sliders which came w/4 & fries...perfect. Had the oysters Rockefeller they were very good on a bed of spinach & sweet plantains. Next was the Kobe pigs in a blanket. They were served w/ mustard, ketchup & NYC frank sweet onions. Delicious & the presentation was great. Next was the seafood sausage served as a lobster roll w/fried lobster pieces on the side. The dipping sauces were a great addition. We were full after sharing 1 desert. We took a peek in the sixty five bar. Pretty view & very lively. Liked the pop up bar better.

A polished and pleasant arrival to this Harvest Moon popup. 3 stars for service only as a result of our server’s lack of interest in walking us through the menu/making recommendations/ returning to check on our satisfaction once drinks & food were delivered. Not quite the experience we were anticipating but the view and Big Apple cocktails kept us smiling. Our small bites included the “clam chowder” and cod sandwich- yummy punches of flavor.

Normally I am very easy to please but the Gallery Bar was a complete disappointment. The point of having dinner at this place is to be able to enjoy the view from your table... unless you get a table by the window just behind a stone wall as wide than the table itself- that is what happened to us. We asked our waiter if there would be any chance to change tables and he said he would check, but never touched the topic again. There were nice people serving at the bar, but our waiter was not one of them- you had the feeling he just wanted us to order as much as possible. With this view, and an airconditioning blowing so hard that by the end of the dinner I was freezing- we did not feel like staying very long., One of the things we order was a plate od crudités with different dips- the vegetables served are too heavy to be eaten raw, but ok, that may be a cultural thing..?, Cocktails were good, but there are good at many other places in NY..., So we ended up, after leaving the Bar, buying a ticket to go to Top of the Rock to have the view we wanted to have...

The service was impeccable. We were seated promptly and the service was great. We had Rose flights which come a 3 flights and they were tasty. We also ordered a few apps including the cod, crab, lamb sliders and chips and dip. Between the 4 of us it was more than enough food. Will definitively visit again.

For the price this Pop-up was a let down. It didn't have much along the way of Rosé Decor. The view was nice. Prices were very high, which was expected. One of our meals (Lobster Negroni Salad) was $25 which tasted great for the 2 small bites it was. Bit into the de-shelled lobster claw to find a large unexpected shell, which was of course an immediate turn off from even wanting to eat the dish. Since the server wasn't nearby I just made sure to cut the itty bitty pieces of claw meat into even smaller pieces and then search for more shell with my fingers. When the server finally did come over I showed him the large piece of shell that I bit into before he took my plate away. He said sorry, rushed away...then crickets. No management came over, no new plate, no discount. Not what I would expect at a place like the Rainbow Room where you are paying a premium. Incredibly disappointed and I feel totally cheated out of my money. I was not in the mood to pull a manager aside before leaving, as I was very upset and didn't want to make a scene.

Just..meh. Summer is for Rose' and this pop-up bar seemed like the perfect fit. Since the pop up bar is Rose' themed, I expected a bit more from the decor. The Rose was good and the cocktails looked great, but this experience could have simply just been in any regular banquet hall with a good view. Go to say you went if you're into that, but I've cancelled my remaining reservations.

The Rainbow Room treated me like royalty for my birthday! It was a perfect choice.
We enjoyed the popup Rose bar.
Then Bebe gave my friends and I an incredible tour of the Top of the Rock, the Rainbow Room, and took SO many photos of us! Can't thank you enough for an unforgettable evening. ❤

Fun pop-up concept, really enjoyed the tasting flights, and of course the view was beautiful. There could have been some more thought put into the overall decor but knowing this is a pop-up I understand why it was minimal.

Our evening was delightful! The Rose Bar cocktail and wine menu was more extensive than I imagined with beautiful pink cocktails and a great selection of roses. The evening was festive, the view was spectacular, our waiter was excellent and the food was perfect. One of us had a full dinner, one an excellent burger, and two of us enjoyed small plates that were well presented. To the already special and fun evening we were having was added the surprise entertainment of a very talented candy artist who created sugar lollipops for all the guests upon request. I would highly recommend seeking out the Rose Pop Up Bar at the Rainbow Room this summer for a date night or night out with special friends.

Whomp whomp. I thought it would be fun and lively. It was such an overpriced snooze fest and the drinks were too sweet or the flavors too overpowering. They tried...we left after one drink.
