In the warmer months, the 23rd-floor rooftop of The William Vale is one of the hottest spots for an outdoor drink, and now the hotel has introduced a fun way to take advantage of those skyline views during the winter. Vale Rink is a public ice skating rink, as well as a tented lounge that offers hot chocolate and other treats. Admission is $20 for adults and includes your skate rental.

In addition to its views, Vale Rink touts its synthetic ice technology from company Glice, which they say is “impact absorbent and environmentally friendly,” while providing “a greater glide and similar feel to ice without the cold and wetness.” Plus, it doesn’t need power, water, or maintenance and can be used in hot or cold temperatures.

Admission is $20 for adults and $12 for children 12 and under. Hours are as follows:

Wednesday and Thursday: 2pm-10pm
Friday: 2pm-12am
Saturday: 12pm-12am
Sunday: 12pm-10pm

And if you’re looking for another rooftop skating idea, consider heading over to the Manhattan side and enjoying views of Brooklyn at the South Street Seaport’s Pier 17. Back in Brooklyn, Dumbo’s Time Out Market has a winter-themed rooftop cocktail bar where you can drink in an igloo overlooking the skyline.
