Good news for seasonal ice skaters: the Kempinski Hotel Beijing has just launched a cozy new rink filled with winter warmers courtesy of their F&B experts.
The Liangmaqiao hotel’s Ice World rink, open until March 1, is an ideal place to lace up and enjoy a casual skate with friends and family. It can also be rented for tailor-made events such as office team building, birthday parties and more.
Aside from the ice, the venue also serves warm treats like mulled wine, hot chocolate, and gingerbread cookies from its outdoor wooden stalls.
Imagine how cozy you’ll feel taking a spin on the ice while refreshing yourself and warming up with treats like homemade Christmas stollen with butter, roasted almonds and goulash soup and warm Fruit Punch, Hot Chocolate, mulled wine, and coffee.
Two hours of ice time can be purchased for RMB 50 per person, while packages for private events cost RMB 148 and feature theme gourmet meals from the hotel’s kitchen.
