M Social Times Square New York has opened an outdoor curling rink at its rooftop bar and lounge, Beast & Butterflies. It is “the first curling rink to be introduced to a New York City hotel in 2022,” according to the hotel.
“We are thrilled to introduce this fun, new offering to our guests and bring our community together in a safe and exciting outdoor setting,” William van Wassenhove, manager of M Social Times Square New York, said in a statement. “With the Winter Olympics approaching, we know how much of a draw the sport of curling is so we can’t wait to be the only hotel in which guests can showcase their skills in the city. This will further introduce New Yorkers and visitors to the beautiful Beast & Butterflies space and highlight the stunning views we have to offer.”
Beast & Butterflies at M Social Times Square opened its doors in summer 2021 and boasts 7,500 square feet of wrap-around terrace space perched above Times Square. The bar’s location provides unobstructed views of the city below. While there, guests can enjoy curated libations crafted by consulting beverage director Frank Caiafa, author of the award-winning Waldorf Astoria Bar Book.
To make things a little less chilly, the curling rink sits in a heated, weatherized tent and is available for play every day from noon to 10 p.m. Reservations are available in 45-minute intervals for $30 per person. Registered guests also get a complimentary Bacardi-spiked warm apple cider cocktail to keep them toasty as they play.
