LSC After Dark: Silent Party
January 19 @ 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Liberty Science Center, 222 Jersey City Blvd., Jersey City
Bring your friends to an after-hours adventure at Liberty Science Center! On the third Thursday of every month, guests 21 and over can enjoy cocktails, food, music, dancing, laser shows, and more.
Quiet parties: they’ve taken New York City, and now they’re taking over LSC After Dark! It’s a party where there’s no music playing until you put on our headphones and choose from one of several different DJs, each with a different musical style. Your headphone changes colors depending on which music you’re listening to!
All night, the different DJs will compete for your attention. Which one will you choose to soundtrack your night?
Get tickets now for a discounted online price. Tickets are $20 per person. There will be a $5 additional charge for all tickets purchased at the door on the night of the event.
