Only the sartorially superb are invited to join the best skating rink party since middle school.

Bryant Park’s Winter Carnival is back for a second year starting tonight, and with it comes the Simulacrum of Yore Society’s Ice Ball. If you have a nice suit (and, preferably, a top hat, because everything is better with a top hat) or a fancy gown, you can lace up beginning at 7 p.m. for two hours of dancing on the rink — specifically the Vienn-ice Waltz.

Not quite graceful on the ice even without a crinoline? There are plenty of other reasons to swing by the Winter Carnival:

  • Catch skating performances by no less than Adam Rippon, the new national champion in men’s figure skating, synchronized skaters The Skyliners and more.

  • Speaking of athleticism, you can take curling lessons with Brooklyn Lakeside Curling Club’s Seth Mellin and CurlNYC’s Dean Roth, or perfect your golf game on the ice.

  • To warm up, head to the Outdoor Winter Brew House (despite the name, it’s tented) for beer, mulled wine and light bites over board games, live music and two trivia hours.

  • In the mood for hot chocolate? Grab a cup inside the Bank of America Warming Lodge, where you can mug for 3-D photos

  • Though the carnival continues on Saturday, the special event that night is a silent disco from 7-10 p.m. with three DJs playing music from every decade from the ‘50s to now.
