Get in the Halloween spirit in Las Vegas with special libations and celebrations
Who hasn’t been spooked by 2020? Amiright? Well, get into a fun type of spooky feeling when celebrating Halloween by downing some themed cocktails and letting loose at some themed parties across the Las Vegas Strip.
First up, Zuma at The Cosmopolitan offers its Mexican Zombie cocktail, served in a skull-shaped cup and mixed with Don Julio blanco and reposado, mezcal, Velvet Falernum, passion fruit and grapefruit juices, fresh lime and a few dashes of absinthe.
Over at The Venetian and The Palazzo, hit up The Dorsey and Electra Cocktail Club, respectively, and you’ll find three specially themed cocktails. They include The Nightmare, a tequila-based treat, Hocus Pocus, made with Jameson and yellow chartreuse, and the Beetlejuice, Tito’s Handmade vodka, lime, matcha, egg white and a dash of cream and club soda.
The STRAT’s Skypod bar, 108 Drinks (108 levels up the tower) offers its holiday-themed cocktail the Spookarita, made with Don Julio blanco tequila, Grand Marnier, lime and orange juices, and Ferrari Carano merlot. It’s served with dry ice, giving it a haunting appearance.
Party with the locals downtown at Gold Spike from Oct. 30-31 at its Fright Spike costume party, complete with haunted hellscape décor and gore. Another locals hot spot, the Sand Dollar Lounge, completely transforms its space into a frightening Halloween-themed party now through Oct. 31, with themed ambient musical performances, spooky décor and lighting—and the undead. Tao at The Venetian transforms its lounge area Thursday through Saturday evenings into a geisha-inspired Halloween party complete with live DJ. Next door at Lavo at The Palazzo, come dressed in your best ’80s attire and celebrate with a decade-themed champagne brunch on Saturday, or dress your fanciest for the Dia De Los Muertos party on Dolce Sundays.
Back at The Cosmopolitan, Beauty & Essex offers its Nightmare on Essex Street festivities Oct. 28-Nov. 1, where guests can indulge in special dishes and cocktails while mystery and mayhem take over the restaurant. And the Marquee Lounge welcomes Playboy for the exclusive Haunted Mansion party on Friday and Saturday nights, where guests can mingle and celebrate all things scary, sexy and seductive.
