The first-ever iceless curling experience at the Curling Café and the beloved cozy igloo experience will arrive at Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park this holiday season. New York City is already a hot spot for visitors each holiday and the Curling Café and Cozy Igloos are just another addition to the festivities guests can experience when in the city.


Situated on the Bryant Park Café deck, Curling Café offers a curling lane where two teams of up to four people can enjoy the thrills of iceless curling for 90 minutes. The Curling Café and the iceless curling experience will be open 3:30–9 p.m. Wednesday–Friday; 11:30 a.m.–9 p.m. on Saturday; and 11:30 a.m.–7 p.m. on Sunday. Between games, players can warm up in the private, heated dome with holiday bites and drinks, like hot chocolate and a cheeseboard with fruit and crackers.


The other experience featured at Bryant Park are the Cozy Igloos by Prime Video. Adorned with seasonal décor on the outside and a heated interior, these igloos are a favorite among visitors. Inside, guests can enjoy holiday food and drinks like mulled wine and hot chocolate. Each igloo offers privacy and the perfect view of the skating rink. Cozy Igloos will be open Monday through Friday, noon–9:30 p.m., and 11:30 a.m, –11 p.m. on weekends.


To ensure guests remain healthy and safe this holiday season, the park’s team will sanitize all igloos and equipment between every booking. Family and adult packages can be purchased for a more intimate experience in the igloos. The adult package includes the option of a carafe of mulled wine or a bucket of beer. Guests of this package can also choose between a charcuterie board, artisanal cheese plate or Bavarian pretzel. Reservations for the Curling Café and Cozy Igloos by Prime Video can be made here.
