The past two years have been full of nothing but immersive experiences in major cities with the rising popularity of places such as the Museum of Ice Cream and Happy Place. There’s no surprise that there is now a Rosé Mansion in NYC! I’m definitely a Rosé gal, but I think this new experience is a great addition to the East Coast for any wine lover. I can think of more than four reasons why you should check out the Rosé Mansion, but I’ll keep it brief today. Note: My admission was provided by the Rosé Mansion team, but all opinions are 100% my own.
#1: There is no shortage of photo ops.
In true 2017-2018 immersive experience fashion, the Rosé Mansion is basically photo-op galore. Every room is Instagram-worthy, even the walkway to the main bathrooms downstairs. There is a solid combination of walls, rooms that are perfect for taking Boomerangs, and even a bathtub full of rose petals! I normally don’t have the urge to take pictures in every single room at experiences, but each and every Rosé Mansion room is too cute not to capture! The lighting is decent in most of the rooms, and only the two most popular rooms were timed.
#2: There are other things to do, too.
Rosé Mansion almost reminded me of an actual museum because I learned so much. The team members spoke about each Rosé, and there were some very informative rooms with history incorporate. I remember doing a ‘science experiment’ at one point as well. The interactive rooms are really interactive; I can’t recall ever walking into a room wondering what its purpose was, and it made the short wait to take my pictures that much better. From the start, you’re given a fun activity to do; no spoilers, but I thought it was cute. If you’re not a social media person, you will still enjoy some of the interactive features and enjoy learning about the Rosés while tasting them!
#3: The samples keep flowing.
Based off of prior experiences, I expected to get wine in a third of the rooms we entered. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there is a Rosé sample in nearly every room. This makes it the perfect place for, say, a bachelorette party, or a girl’s night out (which is why I went!). There’s even a bar at the end of the Rosé Mansion experience which has 100+ types of Rosé. I’m not sure if that’s my wildest dream or my worst nightmare. Either way, you should down a snack before heading over there, and take public transportation instead of driving. Thank me later 😉
#4: It’s organized.
The thing about interactive experiences is that they are very hit or miss, mostly due to organization. Rosé Mansion makes the important things clear on their website, prior to you even setting foot on the grounds: Everyone must be 21 and up to enter (besides small infants before 4:30 pm) and your ID is required for entry. They’re very good about checking it upon arrival. It is also wheelchair accessible, and the bathrooms are fairly easy to get to. You can also find water fountains near the upstairs restroom. General admission is $45, but the ‘Happy Hour’ pricing (available weekdays until 4:30 PM) is $35, and tickets are found online only here.
Included in your ticket is admission, eight 1-oz samples of wine, a goVino wine glass with the Rosé Mansion logo on it (this is what you will be getting your samples in so make sure you hold on to it), and a collectible pin! This was the first immersive experience I’ve been to that offers more than just admission and samples. The team members were also nice about the flow of the rooms; the most popular rooms were timed, but I wasn’t intensely pressured to move on.
Needless to say, I really wish I could go back to Rosé Mansion before the end of their run on October 21st. Fingers crossed that they decide to make it a traveling pop-up!
