For the upper echelons of San Francisco social life, intelligence is sexy. That’s why Nightlife at the California Academy of Sciences is the hottest new singles and date spot in the city. You get to mingle, sip cocktails, dance to the best beats in the city, and enjoy the academy exhibits without the chaos of daytime school groups. For the 21 and over crowd, it’s a real treat to have the place to yourselves and for once- and not trip over strollers.
Featuring a four-story living rainforest, penguins, a floor-to-ceiling coral exhibit, and just about every other fascinating natural phenomenon, The California Academy of Sciences is the perfect setting for your social event ($60 for private VIP if you prefer), a great conversation starter for first dates, or just a great way to get out on the town without the crowded, dark bar scene.
Be sure to get to the Nightlife event early for the best experience and the least amount of wait times. Unless you had dinner prior to coming to the Academy, tapas-style plates are available, that is – if you can pull yourself away from how bizarre it is to watch a glowing jellyfish while drinking a cosmo.
