The New York Botanical Garden’s Holiday Train Show features new plant-based reconstructions of some of New York City’s famous buildings like One World Trade Center, the Battery Maritime Building, and the World Trade Center Oculus, this year. If you want to enjoy these works without the bustle of giddy children, visit during this Friday’s Bar Car Night. Bar Car Nights are exclusively for adults 21 and over and feature an after-dark viewing of the Holiday Train Show along with seasonal cocktails available for purchase and food from the Bronx Night Market Holiday Pop-up. Guests can relax and warm up around the fire pits in the Leon Levy Visitor Center, watch live ice-sculpting demonstrations, and sing along to their favorite tunes with dueling pianos in the Pine Tree Café. There will also be roving a cappella groups to musically guide you through the Garden.
You can purchase tickets to a Bar Car Night here. There are multiple dates that run through January 12th.
