DoCo Night Shot


Make a Night out of your Trip to the Ice Rink

With the Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink being steps away from DOCO and just a short walk from the Old Sacramento Waterfront, there is plenty for you to do once you’re done showing off all your skills on the ice.

Grab a Bite to Eat:

You’re bound to be hungry after burning all those calories at the rink. If you’re in the mood for a little Chinese cuisine, grab a bite to eat at the Michelin-rated Frank Fat’s on L Street. Or how about warming up with some ramen? Swing by Kodaiko Ramen & Bar on K Street and try their Citrus Shio. If you're looking to head towards DOCO, try Tom's Watch Bar or Polanco Cantina. Whatever you’re in the mood for, we know you’ll find something to satisfy your hunger nearby!

Do Some Last-minute Christmas Shopping:

With so many local shops to meander in and around, we’re pretty sure that you’ll be able to find the perfect gift for all the special people in your life this holiday season. Doing a white elephant gift exchange this year and not sure what to bring? Swing by Evangeline’s in the Old Sacramento Waterfront for gag gifts galore. Have a sports fan in your life who loves the Sacramento Kings? Grab them a gift card from the Sacramento Kings Team Store in DOCO.

Warm up with a Hot Beverage:

Feeling a little chilly after your trip to the ice rink? Warm up with a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate from one of Sacramento’s several nearby coffee shops. Temple Coffee Roasters on Ninth Street is a Sacramento favorite offering exceptionally well-prepared farm-to-cup coffee among other drinks. Old Soul Co. on Capitol Mall is another great spot with many different locally sourced coffees and eight different kinds of hot tea.

End the Night with a little fun!

Why stop the fun after you’re done ice skating when you can keep it going just a little bit longer? Take a trip over to DOCO to experience all 25,000 square feet of fun that Punch Bowl Social has to offer. Not only does this restaurant have delicious food and drinks, but it also has bowling, darts, ping-pong, karaoke, and video games, too. While you’re at DOCO, head over to Flatstick Pub, where you can sip on a local craft beer while enjoying a round of mini golf. With the ice rink's close proximity to DOCO, you might even consider planning your trip to the ice rink around when the Sacramento Kings have a home game at Golden 1 Center.
