It's fun, it's romantic, and warm in the winter. Named one of the top places in North America to ice skate by Today.com, Fodor's Travel, USA Today and MSNBC, The Depot Rink is an historic Downtown Minneapolis train shed that now houses a modern-day, indoor skating rink with floor-to-ceiling glass walls providing a great view of the city skyline.

We are the winter gathering spot for birthday parties, family outings and reunions, school field trips, holiday parties, romantic dates, wedding proposals, team building and employee appreciation parties. We offer public skating or private rink rental, a full catering menu and group party packages.

The Depot Rink concessions stand serves a variety of hot snacks such as pizza, panini, hot soup, chili, nachos and much more. Pair a snack with a glass of wine, a locally crafted ale or hot chocolate. The Depot Rink is conveniently adjacent to The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel and their full service Charley's Grill and Stone Arch Bar for complete selection of beverage and food.
