Named in 2014 as the Best By-The-Glass List in the World by The World of Fine Wine, Morrell Wine Bar & Café features more than 100 wines by the glass and nearly 1,000 by the bottle. The highly curated list includes some of the most difficult-to-find bottles in the world, and robust lunch and dinner menus offer bites and entrees created to pair with wine. With its terrace on the Plaza and views of 30 Rock, dining and drinking at the wine bar is a classic New York affair.
Morrell Wine Bar is part of Morrell Wine Group, a New York institution since 1947. What started as a small wine store on East 49th expanded to a flagship retail store and wine bar at One Rockefeller Plaza, and a fine wine auction division. Morrell’s unrivaled collection of highly allocated wines and unmatched expertise makes it a destination for wine collectors everywhere.
Associated with several important firsts in the New York wine scene, Morrell became the first to hold a public fine wine auction in 1994, and the first to offer wine auctions online. In 1999, Morrell Wine Bar opened as the first wine bar in the city. Today, the company’s Wine Vault includes some of the rarest bottles in the world.
It’s the height of summer in the city, and that can only mean one thing— rosé season. Throughout the month of August, Morrell Wine Bar & Café at Rockefeller Center is rolling out a selection of summer whites and rosés that are great for kicking back and drinking it all in.
And, if you happen to have a Rockefeller Center discount card, stop by any weekend for a complimentary brunch mimosa or Bloody Mary with any brunch menu item purchase. Fresh, boozy, and the perfect cure for what ails you, it’s a tasty way to enjoy your day off.
