The Standard Hotel, http://www.standardhotels.com/new-york-city/ has upped it’s fabulousness even more by by opening their very own ICE SKATING RINK! Hello… how freaking sexy is that!!! A skating rink right below High Line Park. The skating rink all 3,000 square foot , is located right in front of the hotel. This is why I have this perpetual love affair with New York City, there is always some new adventure one can get caught up in. And what would a sexy Hotel with a sexy ice skating rink be without their very own après-skate menu which consists of hot chocolate with marshmallows, whipped cream or crushed peppermint candy cane. There’s also egg nog, hot apple cider, teas and cappuccinos. I am sure one can spike their hot chocolate or hot toddy’s with their choice of bourbon, brandy or dark rum! I see romantic nights with The Epicurean Man, skating under the stars under the High Line Park and after heading over to the bar for some yummy Jamaican coffee ( dark rum) to warm us up after. This is definitely on my to do list of adventures for 2011.
The rink is located at 848 Washington Street on the corner of 13th Street. Tickets are $12, and skate rentals are $3. Hours of operation are 10am – Midnight seven days a week.
