North America

If your family travels take you and the brood to New York City this holiday season, a visit to Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park will be sure to get you all in the spirit. The event recently announced the return of two of its most popular activities: Cozy Igloos and Curling Café. Both are now open and tickets are on sale.


Settle into heated Cozy Igloos, clear structures decked out with holiday décor and an intimate space for families to enjoy festive food and drinks, like mulled wine and hot chocolate. The igloos also boast premium views of the ice-skating rink.


Curling Café offers the only iceless curling experience, providing a dedicated curling lane where two teams of four can partake in curling for 90 minutes. A private, heated dome is available for each team, allowing members to warm up and enjoy food and drink between games.
