Ice is nothing more than water that won't let people swim in it. Use sharp metallic blades to punish its stubbornness with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get skate rental and admission to The Rink at Park Tavern, which resides inside a heated garden tent overlooking the picturesque Piedmont Park.
Impress friends and family with an interpretive version of the hustle, or slow skate with that special someone to a tryst-inducing tune played over the piped-in sound system. To ensure gracious glides and smooth stops, the ice is resurfaced multiple times throughout the day with harvested rainwater. Be sure to visit the lodge-like Park Tavern to sip on the included double frozen hot chocolate while your legs relearn what friction feels like. After an enchanting escapade on blades, consider perusing Park Tavern’s expansive menu for a rink-side meal or toe-thawing brew.
To verify availability of The Rink please go to www.parktavern.com for hours of operation and to make sure The Rink is not reserved for private party.

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.
