Curling events at the 2022 Beijing Olympics will take place at the Beijing National Aquatics Center.

The Beijing National Aquatics Center was built in the mid-2000s and opened in 2008. It hosted swimming events during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

The venue can accommodate up to 17,000 spectators during the Olympics, though the capacity may be smaller for curling events.

Known as the "Water Cube" by many, the Beijing National Aquatics Center has also been dubbed the "Ice Cube" during times in which it hosts winter sports like curling.
