The architect of Art Deco Radio City Music Hall, Edward Durrell Stone, and its interior designer Donald Deskey, built a hidden apartment inside Radio City for famous entertainer Samuel “Roxy” Rothafel. Echoing the Art Deco design of the theater, the apartment was the perfect place to entertain the greats of Hollywood’s golden era like Alfred Hitchcock, Samuel Goldwyn, and Olivia de Havilland.

Lush curtains hang from the 20-foot-high gold leaf-covered ceiling. The walls are paneled in luxurious cherry wood. The apartment remains largely unchanged from when Roxy occupied it in the 1930s. Today, the space is available to rent for special events and you can visit it on a guided tour.
