While you’re here, treat yourself to some hot beverages and seasonal specialties at our nearby restaurants.


During the 2019-2020 skating season, don't miss the special Washington Capitals rink decor, a Caps-themed ice resurfacer, and Rock the Rink skate nights (1/18, 1/31, and 2/17) when fans wearing Capitals jerseys receive $5 off admission!
