If the profusion of orange-and-black decorations and carved pumpkin faces haven't clued you in, Halloween is just around the corner and thrill seekers are gearing up for a scarefest that will leave you shivering between dread and delight. All dressed up with nowhere to go? Here're the bars and restaurants serving up a spine-chillingly good weekend of food and frights.
What's better than a haunted house? It's a haunted house with drinks and a party that lets you get your freak on through to the witching hour. This year, Kilo Lounge is ratcheting up the fear factor with three floors of terror themed A Fallen Prince, where guests have to plunge through peril before joining the party at the top level. DJs such as Stefano Ritter and Till Von Sein will layer on the beats for both nights while you sip on Bloody Baby Cocktails. We suggest going in a posse for maximum fun and for that huddle-factor — trust us, you'll need it.
30 and 31 October, Ture Building, 10pm till late. Click here for more information.
For those keener on sating their hunger, head over to Catalunya, your family-friendly Spanish restaurant and tapas bar of choice. Their Weekend Bingo Brunch takes a uniquely Halloween twist with a slew of cocktails and dishes created specially for the occasion. With a buffet selection featuring delectable Spanish dishes, diners are encouraged to indulge in a spot of gluttony. Be sure to look out for their signature traditional suckling pig prepared in Segovian Style as well as the seafood paella.
31 October to 1 November, The Fullerton Pavilion. Tel: 6534 0886.
