Out & About Halloween

Five of the best Halloween parties

It seems Halloween is no longer giving us Aussies the creeps, with Halloween-related spending (think fancy-dress costumes, ghoulishly-carved pumpkins and lollies for trick-or-treating) reportedly up by as much as 30 per cent. But – with less than a week to go – if you’re not yet sure how or where to spend Halloween, we could have the answer. The only requirement? Make sure you dress to distress!

1. Vampire’s Feast

Gazebo Wine Garden in Sydney’s Elizabeth Bay invites you to their fancy dress spook-tacular on Wednesday 31 October. With ghoulish costumes a must, the event is Transylvanian-themed, and will transport you straight into the realms of Count Dracula. Dinner includes terrifying dishes such as Coffin Bay Oysters, Kidney Bean and Braised Lamb Shoulder, Hearts of Artichokes, Lambs Tongue lettuce and truffle Salad, and will be accompanied with just-as-chilling cocktails and Young Blood Shiraz. Tickets cost $60 and are selling fast.

2. Halloween Roller Disco

If working up a sweat whilst rocking out on your roller skates is more your cup of tea, then head to the UNSW Roundhouse for this horror-themed party. Being held on Saturday 27 October from 7 til late, the only requirement is dressing up – it’ll give you the chance to win some blood-sucking prizes. Don’t worry if you don’t own your own skates, you can hire them there.

3. Heaven and Hell at Marquee

Want to win the big bucks this Halloween? There’s $5,000 up for grabs at this Heaven and Hell inspired event at Marquee. Rather than gory, your costume needs to be sexy in order to have a chance of winning the prize fund, plus, if you dress up you’ll get your first drink free. Entry is $20 and the event will be open to the public from 9pm.

4. Circoloco Halloween

The Ibiza-born Circoloco is on its way back to the Greenwood Hotel in North Sydney this Halloween for another blow-out party. Being held on November 3 from midday, the event will feature DJs Jamie Jones, Matthias Tanzmann, Margaret Dygas and more, all spinning tracks tried and tested in Ibiza.

5. Jesse Willesee’s Haunted Hotel

The King’s Cross Hotel will transform itself into a Haunted House this Halloween thanks to tabloid artist Jesse Willesee. Held across five levels of the popular party-spot, the event will include interactive installations, live bands and fashion shoots from some of Sydney’s coolest designers. Entry is $10 on Wednesday 31 October from 7pm until late.

What about you? Where are you spending Halloween? What will you be dressing up as?
