In and Around Toronto: Friday Night Live @ the ROM

On Friday nights through the fall, one of Toronto’s premier cultural institutions will be transformed into one of the city’s most unique and exciting nightlife destinations.

Friday Night Live at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), now in its third year, is an eclectic curated experience at one of Canada’s top museums, not to mention a fine start to a night on the town. The premises of the ROM are transformed on Friday evenings between September and late November by drinks, food, dancing, DJs, and live music, as well as special exhibits and other surprises. Each night has a theme, special performers or art installations, and even occasional nighttime sneak previews of the ROM’s latest blockbuster exhibitions.

Friday Night Live runs from 7 pm to midnight on Fridays at the ROM; the current season commenced on September 10th and autumn’s final museum party is on November 28th. Admission is free for Royal Ontario Museum Members and their guests, $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. A limited number of early bird tickets are available in advance online, otherwise admission is paid for at the door. After 8 pm, admission is capacity-based, so it’s best to get there early if you don’t have advance tickets and aren’t a member.

ROM general admission tickets are not accepted for the Friday Night Live event, and valid government-issued photo ID is required for admission. Bag inspection is in effect and guests may be requested to check their bag, a service which is free during FNL.

See the ROM’s Friday Night Live website for more details, or check out the #FNL hashtag on Twitter as well as @ROMToronto for a view of the event through instant social media. Make a date to be a part of one of Toronto’s hottest current nightlife experiences at one of the city’s most venerable museums.
