No Halloween celebration is complete without some Tim Burton, and GunBar's got your fix. With sweetly creepy decor and DJ Martial spinning, guests will take part in a costume contest with prizes from Perrier Jouet and dBrand, just make sure to say hi to two of our favorite club kids if you swing by!
Where: Gunbar, 55 Gansevoort Street (between Washington and Greenwich streets); 646-236-7309. When: 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Sometimes you need something to take the edge off of all the sexy Snow Whites and raucous Power Rangers, which is why Mulberry Project is the place to go. An added attraction? They're offering their newest cocktail, the Jackalope, formulated by their famed mixologists. So if you need a quieter spot to hang up those tranny heels, look no further.
Where: Mulberry Project; 149 Mulberry Street (between Grand and Hester streets); 646-448-4536.
When: 7 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Halloween at The Dream Downtown (The Gallery)
Duck into the swanky nooks of the Dream Downtown and lose yourself in the frightening atmosphere that can only be felt at a real Halloween party. Don your best duds—this Hallow's Eve fete (accent) is high-end, baby (tickets are $30).
Where: The Dream Downtown (at The Gallery); 355 West 16th Street (between 8th and 9th avenues); 212-229-2559.
When: 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
CO-OP Food & Drink
Halloween seems to be centered around childhood nostalgia (at least in theory) and you know we love that. CO-OP at the Hotel Rivington is capitalizing on the childish adults (or adultish children) that will be running around in costumes and grabbing as much "candy" as they can with a party based around the sweetest childhood game of them all, Candy Land. Think live music, costumes and decor by Patricia Field, and treats from Economy Candy—all ensuring this is going to be one of the sweetest fetes (accent) in town!
Where: CO-OP Food & Drink; 107 Rivington Street (between Essex and Ludlow streets); 212 475-2600.
When: 10 p.m.
Zombie Party in BK
Who doesn't like walking around splattered in fake blood and being undead? If this is you, head on over to the Brooklyn Masonic Temple in Fort Greene and get your zombie on. Horror make-up artists, endless beer, and something called "Zombie Death Punch" should keep the fun alive…get it?
Where: Brooklyn Masonic Temple, 317 Clermont Avenue (at Lafayette Avenue); Brooklyn; 718-638-1256.
When: 9 p.m. to 12 a.m.
Winning a costume contest is an amazing way to end a night. Winning a costume contest at Los Feliz's Halloween bash guarantees a night you won't want to forget, with bottles of tequila (Scorpion Mezcal is for the runner up!) prizes to the lucky few who can trick people into voting for them.
Where: Los Feliz; 109 Ludlow Street (between Rivington and Delancey streets); 212-228-8383.
When: 5 p.m., contest starts at 10 p.m. and the winner will be chosen at 2 a.m.
If dancing your costume off is your idea of how Halloween is meant to be spent, then Hudson Hotel's "I Wake Up Screaming" dance-fest is the place you want to be. With DJ sets by former LCD Soundsystem members, plus DJs Jesse Marco and Sal Morale, this might be the most rocking line up in one location. (Tickets are $30)
When: 10 p.m.
Where: Hudson Hotel; 356 West 58th Street (at 9th Avenue); 212-554-6342.
Maxim Magazine Masquerade Bash
According to Mean Girls, Halloween has always been an excuse to wear as little clothes as possible. Well, the Maxim Magazine Masquerade Bash is giving you your chance to get as skimpy as the law will allow. And if your significant other doesn't want you to leave the house unless you layer up, tell him that 10 Official Maxim Girls are hosting. (Tickets are $20)
Where: 404; 404 10th Avenue (at West 33rd Street); 212-594-4444.
When: 9 p.m.
