The Rosé Mansion is a new installation sensory pop-up museum will open on July 12th until October 7th (at 445 Fifth Avenue near 39th Street).

The Rosé Mansion entails 14 rooms curated for you to time travel capturing photo worthy perfection for Instagram, entertain your inner free spirit, sample refreshing rosé from different regions of the world and gain knowledge on wine.

I was overjoyed with excitement from swinging on a chandelier reminding me of my days in Morningside Park growing up. HARLEM!!! (shameless plug lol). The Champagne Dream room offers a ball pit with a disco feel after admiring the rosé fountain.
