Cosmopolitan’s Iconic Rooftop Ice Rink Returns This Holiday Season


This week, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas announced the imminent return of its iconic rooftop rink for its 11th holiday season next month.

Overlooking the singular Las Vegas Strip, the hotel’s rooftop pool will once again undergo its annual transformation into a 4,200 square foot skating rink made of real ice and will be open daily to the public from Tuesday, November 15, 2022 through Monday, November 2 January 2023 (daily hours may vary).


nicknamed simply The rink– known the rest of the year as the Boulevard Pool – this special seasonal spot invites Las Vegas locals and guests to immerse themselves in a winter wonderland right in the middle of the Nevada desert.

Next to the ice rink, The cottage will also be for its second season – a festive holiday “village” with outdoor fire pits where spectators and après-skaters can sip cocktails, toast s’mores and munch on seasonal light bites while holiday movies classics are screened under the stars on the resort’s 65-foot marquee. Reserved seating is available for small groups of two people up to large groups of 100 people.

In keeping with the rest of the rooftop’s winter theme, the Cosmopolitan’s signature brunch, Overlook Grill, will transform into “Give on the coldfor the very first time this holiday season. An rink-side eatery where diners can enjoy a few secluded snowfalls, Overlook Chill will offer a sophisticated take on classic American comfort food, as well as traditional holiday bites.
