The perfect date awaits… As part of Spinningfields’ Snow Season, the ice rink and surrounding pop-up bars are giving couples the chance to glide through the night on the ice amongst the stars.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The frost-bitten toes, the forecasted 100 days of snow and gluhwein galore, make it an utterly undeniable fact. With all the good-will, over-indulgence and twinkly lights around at Christmas time, it is well known that there is a mighty chance for some seasonal romance too. Discard those winter-induced snotty tissues, don your date night attire and venture towards Manchester’s only open air ice rink in the most romantic part of town: Spinningfields.

Spinningfields' Ice Rink

The huge, open-air ice rink in Spinningfields

Skate and Date is a special offer from Spinningfields, for any two people looking for a romantic date on the ice this festive season. The offer includes a 2-4-1 drinks coupon and an ice rink ticket for two, all for a little sum of £16. So once you've got your skate on, you heat back up with a mulled wine or hot cider in hand. The surrounding pop-up bars include Hibernate, a cosy warm cabin-style bar with décor inspired by the natural elements of winter, and The Long Bar, which will be serving up an impressive selection of winter-inspired cocktails and other beverages.

We think this is the perfect winter date night. What better way to prompt a cuddle than the icy cold conditions? What better excuse to hold hands than to ensure both parties remain (generally) perpendicular to the ice? Not only that, but also the stunning architecture of Spinningfields, and the chic and stylish bars surrounding the area, make this a desirable spot for your divine date.

Now where did we put that mistletoe?
