Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium is at it again. Having just announced that it will offer 3 free admission days a week in September and October, this month the beloved indoor public aquarium will also be hosting a series of after-hours house parties to help us see out summer in style.
Tonight, Friday, September 1, Shedd will pay homage to Chicago’s house music roots with the first Shedd After Hours: House Party of the month.
What better place to experience house music than overlooking the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan? Local DJs will be spinning the beats while you come face-to-face with fascinating animals from across the globe ranging from beluga whales to stingrays.
The 21+ events will take place from Friday, September 1 through September 22, 2023, from 6 pm through to 10 pm every Friday.
Tickets for non-Chicago residents start at $39.95 while Chicago residents can attend for $19.95 and members can attend for $14.95. Admission includes all aquarium exhibits and entertainment. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase.
Each Shedd house party kicks off at 6 pm and will wrap up at 10 pm giving guests 4 hours to enjoy the underwater escapade. More information can be found at sheddaquarium.org.
