Bar Car Nights At NYBG


  • New York Botanical Garden (map)

November 23, 29, 30;
December 7, 14, 20, 21, 27 & 28, 2019;
January 3, 4, 11 & 18, 2020
7–10:30 p.m.

On these nights exclusively for adults 21 and over, the wintry landscape of NYBG sets the scene for festive outdoor adventures, with an after-dark viewing of the Holiday Train Show® as the centerpiece. Purchase a drink from one of our seasonal bars and a bite to eat, then set out to explore the night’s offerings. Relax and warm up around the fire pits in the Leon Levy Visitor Center, watch art emerge from giant blocks of ice during live ice-sculpting demonstrations, sing along to your favorite tunes with dueling pianos in the Pine Tree Café, and so much more.

Get Moving with Uptown Vinyl Supreme and Dazzling Performances

The holiday festivities get started with music curated especially for Bar Car Nights by Bronx-based DJ collective Uptown Vinyl Supreme. Be amazed by the twists and turns of contortionists, precision line dancers, jugglers, and acrobats from American Circus Theatre.
