Rising from a picturesque park, Park Tavern’s heated tent beckons winter-sport enthusiasts to skate and twirl along to energetic tunes. Participants lace up their sharpened Bauer leather skates before gliding across the 3,400-square-foot frozen playground, practicing jumps, spins, and intentional-looking falls. A team of professional ice smoothers resurfaces the rink’s cold carpet throughout the day, and rink-side dining grants noshers a front-row view of the arena’s graceful ice treaders.
The Park Tavern combines the historical grandeur of a century-old locale with the forward-thinking practices of a modern, eco-friendly restaurant. Some of the original woodwork and stone from its past life remains, chronicling the building's history as a horse stable in 1905, a golf clubhouse in 1928, and a space shuttle in 1969. The Tavern’s current layout contains an elegant events space, a dining room with an outdoor terrace, an ice-skating rink, and a live music and festival venue that features the annual Oyster Crawfish Festival.
Adopting green habits, the Tavern's owners developed a rainwater-recycling system to feed its plants and water its landscape, and switched to low-flow plumbing and LEED-certified hand dryers. Its concern for the environment extends to its menu as well: locally harvested ingredients and wild-caught fish support coastal communities and local farms while simultaneously ensuring each plate contains quality, eco-friendly fare. The lineup of dishes includes sushi rolls brimming with sashimi-grade Hawaiian tuna and meaty burgers bursting with fresh-ground Angus beef or great range bison, all of which can be paired with a house microbrew.
