This question already has an answer here:

Is there any formal salutation to greet someone when you meet them at night? A prefix such as 'Good' with morning, afternoon and evening works well but implies altogether a diferent meaning when used with night. To be specific, what can be prefixed with night here or any better way of 'greeting' will also work. P. S:-Informal greetings like hello and hi won't work here.

"Good Evening" or any other way of formally greeting someone. It's pretty tricky not to use "Good Night" considering the connotations of the word, so I would avoid it if you aren't comfortable pulling that out at any given moment.
