California Academy of Sciences | 55 Music Concourse Drive, San Francisco, CA

“NightLife” at California Academy of Sciences | Thursdays

At NightLife, smart revelers receive special discounted evening admission to the California Academy of Sciences on Thursday evenings with unique special events each week.

  • Thursdays from 6-10 pm
  • Tickets are usually $15 with certain weeks being $20
  • Last entry is 9 pm. 21+ with valid ID.

Laugh your face off as SF Sketchfest takes over the Academy for a knee-slapping night of creatures, cocktails, and comedy, part of the 17th annual SF Sketchfest Comedy Festival.

  • Join for a night of irreverent science, featuring a live version of the comedy podcast “This Week in Science,” and an interactive game called “Thinkers and Drinkers”, which combines two of our favorite things: booze and science. You’ll ask a panel of scientists some of life’s toughest questions; they’ll play a drinking game and (attempt) to deliver brilliant answers.
  • The main Piazza stage will be a showcase for a stand-up comedy lineup featuring Bay Area favorites Nicole Calasich, Imran G, and Valerie Vernal, and visiting comics Shain Brendan, Dana Gould, Shannon Noll, Greg Santos, Eddie Della Siepe, and Blake Weller.
  • For fans of The Evil Dead: IFC’s Stan Against Evil, created by Dana Gould, is a horror-comedy about two small town sheriffs fighting supernatural demons; cast members Deborah Baker, Jr., Nate Mooney, Steven Ogg, and Janet Varney will talk about fighting the forces of evil.
  • A variety of food options are available at NightLife from 6:00-9:30 pm, including The Academy Cafe and The Academy Cafe Food Cart located in the front lobby.
  • Enjoy a different fresh seasonal “craft on draft” cocktail at each NightLife bar area designed by our resident mixologist Shane McKnight.
  • And finally, don’t forget to take a “Sketchy Tour of the Night Sky,” the annual opportunity for the planetarium presenters to do their best space-themed stand-up.
