Once the ice officially melts, the skating rink at Rockefeller Center turns into an attraction that's nearly as alluring: an outdoor cocktail bar that whips up frozen, fresh strawberry daiquiris and piña coladas. The submerged, cabana-like setting—a canopy-covered, four-sided bar surrounded by umbrella-topped tables and topped off by the Prometheus Fountain—proves just as magnetic for upbeat, business-casual midtowners as for European tourists. Along with the aforementioned daiquiris served in pint glasses, the bar serves the obligatory martinis (available in classic or flavored: jalapeño, blood orange, and acai) as well as margaritas and mojitos. The smart, nightly drink specials, running $4 and $10, undoubtedly help lure in the after-work set, while the menu of burgers, crab cakes, steaks and salads is geared more toward sight-seers.


Rink Bar shares the menu of the Rock Center Café, and also adjoins The Sea Grill.
