History After Hours

1980’s Prom

After Hours
Thursday, Feb 16 2023 @ 7pm - 10pm

Go back in time with us to Prom Night 1989! You’re invited to one last awesome night with your senior classmates at AHC High as we celebrate the raddest decade yet. Channel your inner Molly Ringwald or Kevin Bacon and show us your coolest 80’s prom attire! We’ll dance the night away in the Grand Overlook Ballroom as Atlanta’s own DJ Yvonne Monet spins the decade’s biggest hits. We’ll also have plenty of spiked punch and a full premium bar (don’t tell the chaperones.) Bring a date–or roll solo–and let’s close out senior year with a night that’s totally tubular!

This event is 21+.
