NYC is giving us quite a few reasons to dust off our roller skates, and they’re not stopping yet!
The Standard, High Line just announced a brand new roller rink coming to the plaza, and it’s making its debut on Wednesday, April 12.
The rink takes skaters back a few decades with a 1960s Mod-inspired rink and plaza restaurant complete with turf and playful seating surrounding the rink.
And when you need to give your legs a break, you can take a seat and enjoy tasty bites such as Disco Fries, made with ranch waffle fries, white cheddar, and chicken gravy, nachos, chicken wing buckets, sliders, pizza, and more. Cocktails served in a wearable drink pouch ensures you don’t miss out on any fun on the rink (and also may give you a bit extra courage to bust out your best tricks on the rink).
Weekly programming and events are set to take place, including silent-skate nights, disco parties, burlesque shows, drag shows, and designated kid and adult only skate hours.
Plus, a collection of merch including roller rink t-shirts, bandanas, tube socks, and patches along with skates from Brooklyn and Portland-based skate shop Five Stride will also be available to purchase so you can be sure to dress the part.
The roller rink will be open Monday to Friday 12p.m. – 10p.m. beginning Wednesday, April 12. Admission is free, and those who need can rent their skates in the skate shack for $10.
The exciting news makes for yet another fun thing to do in NYC this spring as the weather begins to warm up and the sun shines brighter!
