From Après Hour under Luminaries for adults to selfies with Santa for the kids and more, Brookfield Place is your go-to spot for holiday activities and shopping. The complex is located at 230 Vesey Street, in Lower Manhattan, along the waterfront.
For a limited time on December 6, 13, and 20, purchase $15 tickets to Après Hour which includes three cocktails and bites. Adult beverages include a sparkling poinsettia and spiked hot chocolate. This ticketed event series will benefit Outreach, an organization working to improve the lives of communities in NYC and Long Island through substance abuse treatment, who will receive proceeds from each ticket. You can find out more details and snag tickets to this stellar happy hour here.
The happy hour will happen under the beautiful Luminaries installation which consists of 640 twinkling lanterns that change in color. Access to the display is free to the public and on view through January 6.
Santa Clause will also be in the house! Until Dec. 24, kids can snap a photo with jolly Ol’ St. Nick himself. There will be crafts, candy canes and lots of holiday cheer. Check out the schedule here for more information on available dates and times.
And don’t forget about The Rink at Brookfield Place! The 7,350 square-foot outdoor rink boasts breathtaking views of the skyline and Hudson River. If you’re new to skating and want to learn, you can sign up for private and semi-private lessons led by US Olympians Melissa Gregory and Denis Petukhov!

If you spend $250 you can receive a $25 gift card; if you spend $500 you’ll receive a $60 gift card; spend $1,000 and receive a $150 gift card. There are also discounts and perks depending on the brand and retailer along with a free gift wrapping station when you show your receipt.
