The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in nearby Toronto ushers in 2020 with the debut of ROM After Dark, the Museum’s new monthly after-hours bash for the creative and the curious. ROM After Dark (RAD) channels an experiential energy, featuring curated music, visual arts, pop-up performances, and distinctive gastronomy, designed for those looking for a meaningful, art-driven night out.
RAD blasts off on Friday, Jan. 24 with Lunar, a celestial celebration that invites guests to leave planet Earth and take a trip to the moon and beyond. In a unique ROM experience, soundscapes by NASA’s Artists in Residence will transport guests to new dimensions, live performers will enthrall with awe-inspiring acts, and pop-up restaurants throughout the Museum will feature the culinary magic of celebrated Chef Corbin Tomaszeski. Curated venue-within-venue experiences — including a dedicated jazz lounge in c5, a pop-up planetarium, and the otherworldly Asahi Super Dry Lounge — will offer interstellar worlds to explore. Experts from the ROM, the Canadian Space Agency and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada will help guests decode galactic mysteries. Throughout each space, enjoy RAD Signature cocktails, zero-proof offerings, and Ontario wine and craft cider.
ROM After Dark is the evolution of the Museum’s event series, Friday Night Live, and takes place on select Fridays from 7 to 11:30 p.m. RAD is a specially ticketed event for adults 19+. Tickets are on sale now. Prices are $27 for ROM Members, $30 for adults, and $24 for post-secondary students and seniors (all plus HST).
