Hotel Info


For 2021 we’re hoping to have Empire Skate at the EMPIRE HOTEL once again! 

This is a really cool boutique hotel with a funky vibe in a great location; the Upper West Side, across the street from Lincoln Center (home to the NY Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, NYC Ballet, NYC Opera & Juilliard School of Music). This is where we had our rooftop party last year. There’s a trendy lobby bar and they even have an upper rooftop lounging area with a dipping pool. Group-ups will be right outside the front door in Dante park. The subway is 3 blocks away (Red Line #1 at 66th St). Central Park is 2 blocks. Times Square is 1 mile (2 subway stops). We’re VERY excited!
