Here’s everything you need to know about the High Museum’s Friday Jazz nights.
HIGH MUSEUM JAZZ NIGHT
On the third Friday of every month, enjoy music, drinks, and art at the High Museum’s Jazz Night event. The event takes place from 6 pm – 10 pm.
Seating for Friday Jazz Night begins at 6 pm, and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Priority is given to guests with disabilities. The event includes evening access to the museum as the sounds of live jazz music surround you. Two musical areas are set up, in both the Atrium and on Orkin Terrace, so you can enjoy the music throughout the evening. Drinks and light food fare are available.
In addition to the music and drinks, you’ll also find docent-led tours through the galleries. The HIGHlights tours begin at 6:30 pm and 7 pm, and they meet in the Taylor Lobby. The tours are first-come-first-serve.
One of the best reasons to attend Friday Jazz at the High is because it is free for High Museum members. There are always great events taking place at the High Museum throughout the year, and a membership makes those events free for you. Tickets for Not-Yet-Members are $25.
The High Museum Jazz Night is a popular program, and you’ll find all types of guests attending, which makes it all the more fun!
PARKING AT HIGH MUSEUM JAZZ NIGHT
Parking for Friday Jazz can be a challenge, so pre-pay to park in the Woodruff Arts Center deck, which is below the High. The parking entrance is right across from the MARTA Arts Center Station. There are limited spaces, so do yourself a favor and pre-pay to guarantee a spot. You can find more parking options here.
If you are early, pop into Twelve Eighty Lounge for some apps. This sleek restaurant is located on Sifly Piazza, just as you come off the elevator from the parking deck. Plus, their full bar features wines by the glass in several varietals, hand-crafted cocktails, and ice cold beer.

HIGH FREQUENCY FRIDAY
On the first Friday of every month, from 6 pm to 10 pm, you’ll find the HIGH Frequency Friday event. This event features Atlanta’s favorite DJs playing some amazing tunes while you enjoy the galleries.
You can take in the museum’s collections and participate in a docent-led tour, while listening to an amazing soundtrack that will enhance your art experience. Members get in free.
One of the newest offerings at the museum is Oasis at the High. One the second Friday of each month, you can enjoy yoga, practice mindful art making, and reflect deeply with works of art. Guests can enjoy zero-proof beverages or sip a glass of wine while enjoying the museum after hours.
You’ll find six different beginner-friendly yoga sessions offered each evening, along with peaceful music in some of the galleries, and conversations with a faith, spiritual, or contemplative practitioner and a High staff member centered around a work of art.
Dates don’t have to be in the evening! Slip away for a daytime rendezvous and join a professional museum educator for an in depth discussion about art within the museum’s collection at a Conversation Pieces event. No art experience is necessary, and all curious learners are welcome!
Held on the first Tuesday of each month from Noon-12:30pm, you’ll learn more about a work of art from a museum educator — which will give you something fun to talk about over dinner and drinks later.
The High Museum Wine Auction is one of THE social events of the season in Atlanta, and a fantastic way to build out your wine cellar.
