The Rink at Rockefeller Center will transform into a playground for New Yorkers and a community oasis in the heart of the city this summer. New Yorkers, visitors, and office workers will be able to sit, work, play, and engage with new opportunities for dining, shopping, public art, and more.

Beginning in May, two lauded Rink Level restaurants—NARO from JP + Ellia Park of Atomix and Atoboy, and Jupiter from Jess Shadbolt, Annie Shi and Clare de Boer of King— will extend their footprint to The Rink to offer al fresco menus through September, before the space once again welcomes ice-skaters. New Yorkers will be able to enjoy outdoor dining in concert with soon-to-be-announced programming for all ages and seasonal experiences.

The Rink at Rockefeller Center has lived many lifetimes since its inception nearly 100 years ago. It has been the site of tennis courts and fashion shows, the harbinger of the post-pandemic roller skating craze and even, in 1941, the host of one lucky baby seal.

The ice-skating rink will close for the season on Sunday, March 31 and return Fall 2024. The Rink is located at Rockefeller Plaza between 50th and 49th Streets. Tickets can be purchased here.

In addition to The Rink, visitors to Rockefeller Center can experience over 100 works of public art throughout campus and the newly launched The Beam at the Top of the Rock observation deck featuring an interactive photo experience on the 69th Floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza that recreates the famous 1932 photograph “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper.” For the months of March and April, kids 12 and under (and at least 42 inches tall) can ride The Beam for free.
