ROSÉ ALL DAY
Let’s face it: Rosé is having a better summer than all of us. She has taken over every glass, from The Hamptons to Palm Springs, and has served as the drink of the moment to everyone with an open hand.
Taking a cue from the never-ending obsession with the rising start of the summer, New York City has created the be-all-end-all rosé experience, The Rosé Mansion. Yes, you read that correctly. Rosé. Mansion.
The geniuses behind the Mansion created the multi-story ‘museum’ right in the middle of what New Yorker’s lovingly refer to as NoMad, on Fifth Avenue. General Admission tickets are available for purchase for $45, and happy hour takes place on weekdays until 4:30 pm for a cool $35. If you’re in town from now until August, make this experience a priority.
The Mansion is packed with Instagrammable moments and interactive experiences, with rooms practically screaming for a photo. A can’t-miss moment is the “Scent Wall” where guests are encouraged to scratch and sniff the colors of the rainbow while playing a cheeky word game geared towards guessing the flavor or strain of wine.
Our favorite “Insta-worthy,” and most definitely worth-travelling-for moment had to be the chandelier swing. Our insider tip? Make like Sia and swing from that crystal chandelier like no one is watching!
If you are looking for more of an educational experience, take part in the guided tour and leave feeling like a pseudo-sommelier. Hiding behind every corner, Mansion guides are eager to energetically pass along their knowledge of rosé throughout the ages, as well as give you some insight as to what makes each part of wine production special. Lastly, pay a visit to the “Blending Lab” and create your own personal potion strain of rosé. Travel Curator’s was sweet, sassy, and sophisticated – much like our readers!
So before tickets sell out, grab your best girlfriends, strut up 5th Avenue, and embark on the rosé journey of a lifetime. This is what dreams are made of.
