Here's what the space looked like in the summer.
Of course, winter sipping is still of the utmost importance and the W is not about to let anyone down in this department. The hotel is also introducing an ice bar, which will serve après skate cocktails both hot and cold, created especially for the winter by resident mixologist Charlotte Voisey.
The new menu includes a spin on the Hot Toddy, with Jim Bean Rye, sailor jerry spiced rum with nutmeg-infused vanilla sugar, and fresh lime juice; the Get Your Rocks Off, made with fresh grapefruit juice, chilled vodka and Pop Rocks; and a Hot Chocolate Martini with vanilla-infused vodka, tequila and hot chocolate.
You can get your skate on starting tomorrow--the rink will be open from 2–10 p.m. daily. The cost is $12 per person, which includes skate rental and a pair or W hand warmers. If you bring your own skates, you can hit the ice for free.
