Three years after the loss of St. Louis Park's Roller Garden, the Twin Cities is getting a new roller rink β€” and this time it's within Minneapolis city limits.

Rolling the news: Twin Cities Skate Studio is planning to open in Uptown's former CB2 furniture store by the end of May, staff confirmed to Axios last week.

  • It's run by Twin Cities Skaters, which has been operating pop-up roller skating events at spots like City Center and Seven Points since 2020.

What to expect: The concrete-floored space (which also has a disco ball) will host open skating, plus lessons, private events like birthday parties, and "skatearoki" β€” karaoke on four wheels, per the Star Tribune.
