September 12, 2013 by VegasNews.com
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas transforms the iconic Boulevard Pool into an intimate lodge experience with the return of The Ice Rink on Friday, Nov. 22 (Pictured: last year, “American Idol” finalist Haley Reinhart was spotted skating at The Ice Rink).
The Ice Rink will feature an expanded skating area, new cocktail and culinary offerings and additional programming options soon to be announced. The Ice Rink will combine breathtaking views overlooking the Strip with a playful, yet luxurious atmosphere to create the most original winter retreat in Las Vegas. Guests can skate on real ice and enjoy one-of-a-kind seasonal culinary and cocktail offerings while experiencing the brisk outdoors amongst fire pits, picnic tables and Adirondack chairs.
Special weekly programming will ensure a night for everyone such as ‘Date Skate’ Mondays, where visitors will experience a date night on ice as beloved holiday movies such as “A Christmas Story,” “Elf,” and “Miracle on 34th Street” play on the resort’s 65’ digital marquee.
Every Wednesday the most renowned DJs in Las Vegas will turn The Ice Rink into an outdoor club scene during ‘Industry Skate on The Strip,’ creating a nightlife experience unlike any other. Finally, ‘Throwback Thursdays’ will give guests the opportunity to dig out their leg warmers and disco gear as they skate the night away to music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
A full bar will serve up curated cocktails with favorites from last year including The Ice Rink’s signature cocktail, the Campfire Delight, created with Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka, crème de cacao, RumChata and marshmallow. Seasonal food offerings including the toasted homemade cashew butter and roasted strawberry jam sandwich and beef chili, grilled corn bread with aged cheddar along with staples like grilled cheese and tomato soup are sure to warm things up along with the return of the immensely popular fireside s’mores kit.
The Ice Rink will be open from Friday, Nov. 22 through Sunday, Jan. 5. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 3 p.m. to midnight and Saturday – Sunday from noon to midnight. All day skating access is $10 for Nevada residents and $15 for non-residents. Visitors to The Ice Rink are allowed to bring their own skates, or can rent a pair for $5. Skate aid rentals are also available for $10. The Ice Rink welcomes guests ages two and up. However, children 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 21. Admission to the unique winter atmosphere surrounding The Ice Rink is free.
