Get spooky with these Halloween-themed events that will promise you a bone-chilling night.
TBH Halloween in the Lion City is not about going door to door for cavity-causing candies, it’s about scary blowouts and hair-raising revelries. This October, put on your best spooky outfit and get ready to hit the dance floor alongside some terrifying tipples at these halloween-themed events. Foodies, join in the spooky fun as we have thrown in a few hair-raising dining spots to check out.
25 – 27 October
The first cashless bar will turn its space to the Island of the Dolls. The actual island is located in Mexico where it’s home to hundreds of dolls and we’re not talking about cookie-cutter Barbie dolls. The dolls are battered – headless, armless and eyeless! Spooky right? So expect an army of creepy dolls hanging around as Get Juiced resident DJs spin sick beats all night.
Get Juiced, #02-01 Clarke Quay, 3E River Valley Road, Singapore 179024
25 – 27 October
Nightlife behemoth, Zouk is going all out this Halloween with a horror story that will have you thinking Hawkins National Laboratory (yes, we made a Stranger Things reference). Step into Zouk and Phuture as it transforms itself into an abandoned lab from the 1960s due to some ominous radiation leak. Party the night away alongside wacky scientists, strange creatures and evil park rangers.

The spectacular rooftop nightclub is bringing back London’s Cirque Le Soir on 26 October, to dazzle us with magicians, sword swallowers, acrobats, exotic dancers and freaky clowns (the worst!). On Halloween day itself, the lounge will bring you glow-in-the-dark fun with its Neon Jungle theme. Smear some neon paint and party the night away with hip hop beats.
