There's no shortage of ice rinks in NYC, but the chicest one is certainly the Popup Ice Rink at The Standard Hotel
. Now open for the 2013 winter season, the rink is located in The Standard Plaza
at the corner of W. 13th and Washington Street. It's a small, intimate rink that's perfect for a date night skate. The best part (in my opinion), is the rink-side Alpine Kaffeeklatsch that is a must apre skate, serving cold-weather favorites (hot ciders, hot chocolates) and spiked versions for the nightime crowd.
