Friday, May 5; 7 – 11 p.m. (Ages 21+)
Party in the Tropics

Dine, drink and dance the night away in our tropical paradise.

Gather your friends and head to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for a healthy dose of revelry and rejuvenation as our Tropical Forest Conservatory transforms into one of the city’s most unique nightspots. At this reoccurring party, you can make our paradise your own as you indulge in sweet and savory morsels, taste unique cocktails and seasonal beer selections, dance to the beats of a live DJ, and unwind amidst lush greenery and rushing waterfalls. You won’t find a venue like this anywhere else in the ‘Burgh!

Entry to these special events is free with Phipps admission, but space is limited: if the event space fills to capacity, admission may be temporarily closed until more space becomes available. A variety of appetizers and drinks will be offered for purchase throughout the night. Open only to guests 21 or older with a valid ID (passport or driver's license). Limited free parking is available in the center island on Schenley Drive and in the metered spaces along the street after 6 p.m.
