The Appel Room

Based on the design of a Greek amphitheater with adjustable tiers for multiple seating options, The Appel Room has one of New York City’s most dramatic and breathtaking backdrops: a 50’ by 83’ wall of glass overlooking Central Park, Columbus Circle, and the Manhattan skyline. The iconic room offers a sophisticated and unique space to host gala benefits, cocktail receptions, dinners, conferences, and personal occasions, in addition to jazz performances that have included such greats as Joe Lovano and Cécile McLorin Salvant as well as American popular music revivalist Michael Feinstein. The stage is also home to Lincoln Center’s popular American Songbook series. The Appel Room is located on the sixth floor of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. Frederick P. Rose Hall opened in 2004 as the world’s first facility entirely devoted to jazz, designed to showcase the warmth and clarity of the sound of jazz.
