Flow with the fishes, chill with animals, and learn in the lounge at these adult-only events.  

Denver has some awesome attractions that are great for the whole family. But what if you want to ditch the kids and enjoy them with fellow grownups (or close to it)? We’ve got you covered with a list of the cool events that nourish both your body and brain.

Yoga with the Sharks

The Downtown Aquarium wants you to flow with the fishes. A perfect way to give your body and senses a workout, this fun event is often Saturdays at 8 a.m., before the aquarium opens. Bring your mat and some water and zen out with the swimming sharks.

This event is extremely popular, and it appears tickets are sold out until the November dates, so get yours early!

Dates and Times: Saturdays, 8-9 a.m. (subject to change)
Location: Downtown Aquarium - Denver, 700 Water St., Denver, Colo.
Cost: $10
Ages: 16+

Sunrise Vinyasa Yoga at the Gardens

Sharks aren’t your speed? Then check out Sunrise Vinyasa Yoga at the Botanic Gardens. Promote alignment, flexibility, focus, endurance, and detoxify your body through movement and challenging poses. The garden setting will certainly help you cultivate a sense of peace and calm to start your day. During the winter months, the classes are held in the Morrison Center.

Dates and Times: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8 a.m. (subject to change)
Location: Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street

The Watering Hole: Fierce Femmes

“Who wears the pants at home? Male dominance in the animal kingdom is thought to be the norm but at Denver Zoo and in the wild, there are several species where the female is boss!”

The Denver Zoo wants you to explore maternal instincts, courtship and breeding, hunting, and more at this adult-only event! Women in conservation will be highlighted, and there is a cash bar and light appetizers provided. This is the last Watering Hole event of the year, but keep your eyes peeled for events starting in 2019!

Location: Denver Zoo, 2300 Steele Street, Denver, CO
Cost: $25 non-member; $20 member

After Hours and Science Lounge 

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science gets that adults need to feel like kids, too. That's why they offer a whole host of events that are entirely geared toward 21 and older. Two specific happenings allow you to hang out in the museum after everyone else has vacated the premises (Night at the Museum montage, anyone?).

After Hours is a series of evening programs that allow you to learn about new ideas, cutting-edge science and interesting people, complete with a cash bar. Events like game nights, movies, lectures, and more will expand your mind. Check out all the upcoming events here.
