My husband and I enjoyed a Friday date night at the Fernbank Museum. I take the kids to this museum often so an adult after hours experience with cocktails was most enjoyable. We arrived early and found that others had done the same. There were small groups of visitors also gathered in the lobby offering conversation. Downstairs there were indoor and outdoor tables, four cash bars, food, live music and space for dancing. And yes there were many couples dancing beneath the dinos! The atmosphere beneath the massive dinosaur exhibit was enchanting amongst the music, chattering crowd, cocktails, and laughter. We enjoyed a tasty appetizer and cocktail before headeding upstairs to enjoy an IMAX film, Mt. Everest, which was spectacular! The atmosphere was unique with a chic and mature crowd. The food and cocktails were tasty but average. The forty minute film was exceptional. The service was great. Overall, it was a great way to kick off our night as we followed it with dinner in Buckhead and dessert in downtown Atlanta. This experience is highly recommended for couples who appreciate a more sophisticated or cultural nightlife experience. It's also great for gatherings after work or girlfriends looking to do something different. It was a relaxing end to the week. The event is flexible in that you may arrive at any time between 6:30-11:00. You have the option of attending the cocktail gathering only or adding a movie. You also have an option of movie times and discounts for museum members. Check the website for more info and advanced ticket purchases.
