About the Venue

Based on the design of a Greek amphitheater, The Appel Room merges luxuriant splendor with functional accessibility. One glance at the dramatic 50' × 90' wall of glass confirms that The Appel Room possesses one of New York City's greatest backdrops—Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.


Several mechanical tiers make up the fluid inner structure of the amphitheater, offering a strikingly adaptable layout. This ingenious design allows for a smooth transformation from supper-club or event mode (four wide tiers) to theater mode (seven incremental levels). For additional capability, The Appel Room features a removable stage on its bottom level. The Appel Room provides an ideal location for a variety of diverse needs. For receptions and seated dinners, catering is provided by Great Performances, one of New York's finest caterers and Frederick P. Rose Hall's exclusive catering partner.
