More than 170 boutiques offering exquisite gifts, distinctive apparel, local foods and more set up shop
Inspired by the open-air markets of Europe, every holiday season Bryant Park becomes the place to shop and enjoy the winter. Featuring artisans from around the world located along Bryant Park’s allées and terraces, the holiday shops are housed in custom-designed “jewel box” kiosks. Visitors can enjoy local crafts, artisanal food and goods from all over.
Purchase anything from handmade jewelry, clothing, artwork, candles and Christmas ornaments to fresh baked doughnuts, hot chocolate, wine and all sorts of food.
This year’s vendors include Alchemist, 5th & Madison, Arancini Bros., Bara Boheme Jewelry, Breezy Hill Orchard, Bun Ramen, Christmas in New York, Aux Merveilleux de Fred, Doughnuttery, Dog & Co., JustStars, Melsy’s Illustrations and dozens more.
Take a break from shopping and visit The Rink, the centerpiece of the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park. The 17,000 square foot rink features free admission ice skating, high quality rental skates, free skating shows, special events and activities.
When you get hungry, head to The Lodge, Winter Village’s new rinkside bar and food hall. A cozy winter destination with offerings from a dozen new and classic NYC restaurants, The Lodge features a festive cocktail bar surrounded by a full range of eateries, including Mah-Ze-Dahr bakery, Pierogi Boys, Good Stock, Todaro Bros., Chimney Cakes by Stackery, a S’Mores Bar by Squish, an outdoor beer garden and many other exciting dining options to quell hunger.
The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park are open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Jan. 2.
