Adler After Dark

Although many people believe that visits to the planetarium should be reserved just for children, the Adler Planetarium has another idea in mind.

The Adler Planetarium, located in Chicago’s South Loop, has a monthly exhibit that invites adults 21+ up to explore the planetarium with drinks and entertainment. On every third Thursday of the month, it offers unique entertainment that’s perfect for local Chicagoans or tourists.
