What a fabulous time. I can't recommend RainBow Room for New Year's Eve enough. The band was fantastic and the Honeytaps need a definite shoutout. Food was excellent - wine pairings were separate. I think this is what new ill do every year!

Bar65 is the one you want to book. That is the bar/restaurant part. The other rooms are function rooms for parties etc. You will love Bar65!!

I think it’s the same place- but not sure. It’s bar 65 you want to book though as views are fantastic. Ask for a window seat if possible
