Every Friday and Saturday night, it’s Date Night at The Met! Bring a friend or special someone (or yourself!) for an evening of live music, drinks, and 5,000 years of art.

Experience live music and gallery chats across the Museum, and enjoy drink specials and an assortment of light fare in the American Wing Cafe, the Great Hall Balcony Cafe, or the Petrie Court Cafe. Met Members at the Evening Hours level and above are welcome to enjoy small bites menu in the Balcony Lounge (reservations recommended).
