History of The Dome & Rooftop Lounge

Stevie Wonder and some friends of The Manor in The Dome, circa 1982.

Since the mid-1970s, the domed structure above the elegant à la carte dining room at The Manor has hosted live music, DJ dance parties and the occasional vaudeville or specialty act.

It was also the occasional hangout of local and international celebrities including Joe Pesci, Erik Estrada, Mary Travers (of Peter, Paul and Mary), Stevie Wonder and the one-and-only Liza Minelli who performed two full sets in 1982, the same year she was performing in the Tony Award-Winning “The Rink” on Broadway.

The Dome, originally designed for but never integrated into the White House during the Benjamin Harrison administration (1889-1893), was adapted for The Manor and added to the West Orange landmark in 1975.  A rooftop lounge with ample seating that overlooks The Manor’s formal gardens was renovated in 2010.

There is no cover charge for enjoying The Dome. Specialty cocktail menus are available as well as a special bar menu. The party gets started at 6:00pm on both nights. Interested attendees are encouraged to “Like” us on Facebook and join The Manor’s mailing list for news and updates about events in The Dome.
