Party season is fast approaching but before your dairies go all glam, your events calendar will take a dark turn, with Halloween events popping up everywhere in the City. Stuck on what to do? Here are a few tips from Darling HQ.
Halloween at the Top, The Sky Garden
If youre addicted to Instagram, like we are, somewhere on your feed you've stumbled across pictures of the Sky Garden. In one word, it is beautiful. This Halloween, the Sky Garden is the go-to place for the liveliest Halloween party. Fancy dress is encouraged and tickets are mandatory. Dress-up and dance away surrounded by bold botanicals and blossoming blooms..
29th October, Sky Garden, 1 Sky Garden Walk
Our favourite New York-style brasserie, Balthazar, is hosting one of the best Halloween events this weekend. The restaurants will undergo a gothic transformation for its three-day extravaganza think dark floral arrangements, skeletons and pumpkins. Their famous menu takes a seasonal turn too, serving artfully designed delicacies and limited edition cocktails to help set the tone. The event closes with a live set from DJ duo Amber Le Bon and Becky Tong on the Sunday Night..
Friday 28-Sunday 30 October, Balthazar, 4-6 Russell Street
For All the Gore, The Electric Cinema
Into your horror films? Then the Electric cinema is made for you. Forget movie night on your sofa at home. Take a trip to "The Gore Tour". They are showing four different scary films. Whether it is just the two-of-you or a family outing, they offer armchairs, beds and sofas (not your average cinema, hey!) We think that the cocktails on arrival and a half-time breakfast seal the deal, be sure to book now..
