The Scoop: Rosé Mansion is a trendy date spot for New Yorkers who love sweet wines, epic adventures, and picture-perfect moments. This iconic destination offers 14 wine tasting rooms in a colorful labyrinth that leads to a bar fully loaded with sparkling wines, frosés, and snacks. Rosé Mansion’s motto is “celebrate everything,” and it welcomes people celebrating marriage proposals, anniversaries, bachelorette parties, and good old-fashioned date nights.
The Rosé Mansion in New York City is the perfect blend between a wine bar and an art gallery. This amusing destination has plenty for visitors to see, do, and drink, and you can find a unique photo op around every corner.
The mansion features 14 tasting rooms, each with an original theme and cartoonish decorations. A team of cheerful staff members pour glasses of rosé for visitors while providing fun facts about the wine’s history and taste profile. Many couples show up looking for a fun date activity, and they come away with a great story and fantastic pictures.
The creators of Rosé Mansion have been hosting wine festivals for over a decade, so they know how to throw a great party. They’ve used their event experience and wine knowledge to revolutionize wine tastings for a modern audience. The result has been an Instagram sensation.
Since 2018, the Rosé Mansion has become a go-to amusement park for wine lovers in the mood for something special. It appeals to couples, friend groups, and bridal parties looking to celebrate and make memories together.
“It made sense to us to build a permanent wine tasting experience because we could offer a high level of service,” said Tyler Balliet, Founder and President of Rosé Mansion. “It was really always about bringing people together to have a fun unique experience.”
Sharing Romantic Moments in a Wine-Filled Wonderland
Once the idea for a wine tasting mansion took hold, the team always knew it would center around rosé, which has a wide appeal and a long history of inspiring bubbly feelings and conversations.
“Rosé is an awesome vehicle for storytelling,” Tyler said. “It allows us to tell a lot of stories about history, culture, science, politics, and ultimately about people.”
Rosé Mansion offers an interactive and all-inclusive wine tasting experience that is truly one of a kind. You can jump out of a plastic cake and throw confetti or sit in a bathtub filled with rose petals. Each room has a different theme, but they’re all eye-catching and Instagram-worthy attractions.
Tickets for general admission are $45 and include full access to the RoséLand playground and eight tasting glasses of rosé. One of the most popular tasting options is Cleopatra’s wine, which is a fizzy dark pink wine that comes from the north of Italy. People also rave over the gummy bear flavored wine and lemon frosé sold at the bar.
You can save money by coming to Rosé Mansion during Happy Hour, which runs all day on Mondays and before 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays. Admission tickets are only $35 and glasses of wine are discounted to $5 during Happy Hour.
The wine bar is the final stop after guests run through the mansion. It offers over 100 different rosé wines sold by the bottle and 15 by the glass. You can also enjoy some tasty snacks (aka tacos!) that pair well with fruity pink wines.
If you book a package deal for a special occasion, you can linger in a private seating area with a complimentary bottle of wine. Packages start at $99 and offer a half bottle of wine per person — or you can splurge on a three-liter bottle for the group. Frosé is also an option for couples looking to chill together.
Rosé Mansion can accommodate birthday bashes, bachelorette parties, date nights, and other fun celebrations with its group deals and gift bags.
Whether you go with a large group of friends or just with that special someone, Rosé Mansion can entertain and delight you with its unique displays, engaging activities, and decadent wines.
A Venue for First Dates, Proposals & Bachelorette Parties
Rosé Mansion encourages visitors to explore the artsy rooms, sample different wines, and capture silly photos of their experience.
Many couples choose to get a date night package so they can share an intimate moment at the end of their tour of the mansion, and it’s a great way to mark a special occasion, such as an anniversary or Valentine’s Day. Rosé Mansion has even been the backdrop for marriage proposals and honeymoon trips.
The Rosé Mansion team is always thrilled to coordinate with people to plan surprise proposals, and they’ll also offer a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine for couples who get engaged at this wine-themed playground.
“It’s a very cute place to propose,” Tyler said. “Anyone going on a date at Rosé Mansion is already super stoked to be here. Guys who figure that out — they’re heroes.”
Rosé Mansion tends to draw in the crowds during holidays, and Valentine’s Day has become a particularly popular time to stop by and share some wine with a significant other. As far as date activities go, Rosé Mansion is fun, low-key, and something different, so many couples head here when they want to get out of their dinner-and-a-movie rut.
Tyler said he’s even seen quite a few couples meet at Rosé Mansion for a casual first date. It makes sense as a get-to-know-you date venue because there’s wine, plenty of conversation starters, and a set end point. You can bounce as soon as you get to the wine bar, or you can pull up a seat and stay chatting for hours — it’s up to you!
Over the last year or so, Rosé Mansion has inspired many joyful moments between couples, best friends, siblings, coworkers, and other social groups, and everyone who walks through these doors goes away with memories they’ll cherish for life.
“I totally came for the photos, and I definitely got what I wanted,” said Michelle W. in a Yelp review. She took her boyfriend to Rosé Mansion to be her personal photographer, and they had a great time snapping photos and sipping wines.
Even during the coronavirus outbreak, Rosé Mansion has still brought laughs and a much-needed distraction to local New Yorkers. One birthday girl decided that even if she couldn’t go to the mansion as planned, she could still create a special celebration by bringing the mansion to her home. She reached out to the team for supplies and recreated its tasting rooms at home.
“It’s one of those things that gives you the warm fuzzies,” Tyler told us. “We love being part of these special moments in people’s lives.”
The Rosé Mansion Helps Create Unforgettable Memories
Rosé Mansion started as a pop-up wine tasting experience, and it has become a full-fledged tourist attraction in the heart of New York City. Now the team intends to continue growing and adding new experiences, rooms, and wines to tantalize the senses of its visitors.
The Rosé Mansion team is now working to unveil a new pop-up project dubbed Immersed in Wonderland. This 14,000-square-foot art installation comes straight from the imagination of artist Alexa Meade. She painted 35 different scenes full of beautiful patterns and optical illusions, and she also painted the Rosé Mansion wine bar, which will now serve fun cocktails in addition to its signature rosés.
If you’re looking for something fun to explore with a loved one, you can’t do much better than Rosé Mansion where the rooms are as bright and bubbly as the wines.
“We built the Rosé Mansion to be a really fun place to hang out,” Tyler said. “It’s great for date nights and BFF nights. It’s a place where people can come together and do something a little different, unique, and super cool.”
