Science of Cocktails @ After Dark
Grab your friends or a date, and join us for a tasty pop-up version of Science of Cocktails, our beloved fundraiser focused on mixology science.

After Dark Thursday Nights are our adults-only evenings at the Exploratorium. Each week, After Dark offers a unique and fascinating mix of activities, ranging from guest speakers and music to interactive art and films.
Whether you’re already a Science of Cocktails fan, or you’re ready to level up your After Dark evening—don’t miss Science of Cocktails @ After Dark.
*On-site dining is contingent on local and state regulations. The Exploratorium will continue to rely on science to guide final decisions regarding this and all in-person visits and events.
