This weekly rollerskating meet-up takes place indoors (and anyone can go along)
This is a game-changer.
Rollerskating became seriously popular in America from the 1930s to the 1950s, then again during the 1970s roller disco boom.
But ’tis far from the Hollywood hills we’ve been reared and so the weather tends to put a bit of a dampener on the idea of taking off into the streets, boots laced and coattails flying. Plus we’d rather nobody see us fall over.
Now you can skate to your heart’s delight and shield yourself from prying eyes and the rain at the Roller Criú weekly meet-up.
Every Wednesday, you’ll find the skaters suited and booted and flying around a spacious, smooth-surfaced area in the Marina Market, also the alternative venue for their Sunday skate when the weather is particularly brutal.

If you want to try out your moves, all your need is your own skates and protective gear, and good vibes.
Head to the Marina Market every Wednesday from 6pm to meet the crew. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can also join them on Sundays in Marina Park from 12pm. Everyone is welcome.
