It's that time of year again where we start getting the chills. Chills of excitement, curiosity, and perhaps even a bit of mischievous delight in there too.
For what is October, without our favourite spooky holiday, Halloween!
Halloween in London is indeed a spectacular thing to behold. From mysterious shows and twisted themed venues to a demand to bring out our naughty side, Halloween is certainly a time to experiment. Spend Halloween with us and get ready to embrace the crazy, the unpredictable and the downright strange.
It's time to grab your torches and pitchforks...here are the best ways to spend Halloween in London this year.
Hope along to Monument's Agenda Bar and step into our Transylvanian nightmare, where we're 'vamping' up the fear factor (we're sorry). The entire interior of Agenda will be transformed to look like its come right out of a Bram Stoker novel, with prizes going for the best-dressed vampire.
As well as the usual Happy Hour, there'll be a free ghoulish cocktail for groups of 6 or more. If you want to take horror back to its roots, this is the place for you.
Nightmare on Broad St
If you fancy yourself in a fairytale gone bad, then Babble City's Nightmare on Broad St can provide. Get ready for the ball with our onsite Make Up Artist, on hand to help you look as beautiful gruesome as possible. Be granted your very own pumpkin in the form of our Pumpkin Sharer cocktail. And find out if your story ends happily or tragically when you make a table reservation, as we'll end your night with a special late night 'Trick or Treat' surprise. What will yours be...?
At Core Bar, things are getting freaky. Join us at the Freak Show where our circus performers will be keeping you entertained...as well as giving you sights to behold you wouldn't find in your wildest dreams. There'll also be a tirade of spooky Halloween-themed cocktails with our current favourite spirit, Bacardi Rum. Why not head down here and try them all for £20??
Nightmare on Cornhill
Cornhill's Forge is taking things up a notch, showing us just what happens when a night at the opera goes awry. Throughout this evening the bar will be filled with Black Swan-style ballet dancers, looking beautifully haunted whilst our 'Tower of Death' provides of complimentary blood...we mean champagne.
Book yourself a table and make use of our Deadly Intentions offer - a £500 drinks package for £250! You might say its an offer to die for.
Scarlet's Twisted Circus
Unleash your inner ten year old and head to the circus at Covent Garden's Scarlet's. Besides ground-level performers and live entertainment, you'll be kept occupied with enough candy floss, popcorn and creepy cocktails to last you till dawn.
Book one our bespoke packages for you and your fellow freaks and get ready to fill your boots. A night at the circus never was so twisted...
Carnival of the Dead
What would the scariest night of the year be, without London's favourite madhouse? Piccadilly Institute will be joining in the celebrations with its very own Carnival for the Dead, where its already bizarre and boggling rooms take an extra turn for the worst.
Tread carefully and steer clear of the evil clowns and mad magicians you'll find wandering the halls of the Chamber, Shrink room and the Clinic. Just when we thought things couldn't get crazier...PI went and proved us wrong.
