Shedd After Hours

Shedd After Hours is a time for adults to relax, socialize, enjoy music and take in spectacular skyline views on the lakeside terraces.

Starting this fall, Shedd expands its evening offerings to three nights a week. If you love Jazzin’ at the Shedd, you’ll love these additional after-hours opportunities!

Mark your calendars now for a grown-up getaway to Shedd Aquarium, with food and beverages available for purchase.

Please note, on Mondays, onsite ticket sales for After Hours will end at 5:15 p.m.
