From admiring the Saks Fifth Avenue windows to taking in over two million dazzling lights at Hudson Yards, attending tree lighting ceremonies and getting your shopping done at holiday markets, winter in NYC makes for the most magical moments and memories! And we’re here to add even more fabulously festive things to do this season—including BUMP, a nostalgic bumper car pop-up in the Meatpacking District.
Sure we’ve seen Bumper Cars on Ice at Bryant Park and some (sans ice) at TWA Hotel, but this year, bumper cars will grace The Standard, High Line.
The nostalgic, punk pop-up pays homage to 80s culture and is beckoning New Yorkers to come and “let out [their] inner misfit.” You’ll see “Barbiecore” take over The Plaza with ironic hot pink uniforms, safety pins, mohawks and more rebellious symbols decorate the space.
BUMP is open seven days a week from 12pm–10pm on Mondays – Fridays and 11am–10pm on Saturdays & Sundays. Rides are $20 per person for 8-10 minutes.
After working up an appetite from all the fun you’ll be having, fill-up on The Plaza’s usual fare with a seasonal twist. Feast on fried chicken, pizza and burgers, in addition to select salads and a raw bar.
And of course, you can’t forgot about the cocktails! Snuggle into steaming cups of boozy hot chocolate or their specialty “Hot Wheels” made with dark rum spiked hot apple cider at the lounge area.
