Default Athens Skate Inn

Yes, we're still here and trying! It's been a very tough road with alot of hurdles to over come but we haven't given up. The rink is really coming together and looking good. Hope to see you soon!

Where is it? Is there a website? What kind of floor? What kind of music? Will have to check it out. Good luck!

Rink is located on the West Side Athens GA near the mall. We do not currently have a website but will soon. We will be using the original concrete floor with a polyurethane Roll On skate surface.

As for the music we will play a balance of rock, hip hop, and pop along with a little country. Basically anything anyone wants to hear. On wednesday nights we will be having an old school night and play all the hits from the 70s and 80s.

We still do not have an official opening date. A lot of things are having to be brought up to code that we did not anticipate. We do hope however to be open sometime in February but will most likely be at the end of the month instead of the beginning.
