Zoo Lates at ZSL London Zoo - Every Friday in August

ZSL London Zoo | Zoo Lates every Friday in August

Londoners are being invited to get that Friday feeling every week this August with ZSL London Zoo’s brand new late-night-opening event, ZOO LATES.

The Zoo is the place to go this summer, and the party animals will be staying up past their bed-time to enjoy a cosmopolitan night of cocktails, canapés and dancing…

Each Friday night in August, ZSL London Zoo will be keeping its doors open after hours so that everyone has the chance to get their weekend off to a wild start. Guests will be spoiled for choice with a range of bars serving Pimms, mojitos, and champagne. Also on offer are some great dining experiences; visitors can pre-order a posh picnic or sample sumptuous seafood canapés and a classic summer BBQ.

For those who want to dance the night away, the Zoo’s very own Silent Disco is the place to be and be seen. Churning out tunes throughout the evening, there’s nowhere better to shake your booty than in front of an admiring audience of flamingos.

Visitors will also get the chance to see the Zoo’s weird and wonderful inhabitants after dark, including the trio of western lowland gorillas in Gorilla Kingdom and the beautiful family of Asiatic lions in their newly revamped Big Cats home. A visit to the Zoo’s brand new indoor Rainforest Life exhibit is also a must, where monkeys of the South American tropics roam freely amongst the visitors and mysterious nocturnal creatures reside.
