So you’ve got your costume and your scary face on – now where to go for the hottest South Beach spookfest? Here are three great parties happening tonight (and right on into tomorrow morning!)
For Freaky Fashionistas
If your idea of halloween is much more “risky sexy” than ghoulish, you should not miss the Cavalli Miami party at the famous fashion designer’s restaurant and lounge. Jungle Themed Halloween Bash, which will be hosted by Roberto Cavalli himself, will transform the luxurious space into a luscious kingdom that will sprawl through the main dining room and the upstairs lounge. The theme is “hunter” and “prey”, so look out for lustful “beasts” handling exotic live serpents and body painted beauties handing out bags filled with sweet treats.
If you’re not on a budget, there’s a $150 palatial feast (with champagne) downstairs from 9.00pm to 12.00am but you can skip the food and just pay $50 for gentlemen and $30 for ladies.
For the ambitious undead
Mansion – one of the most famous nightclubs in the neighborhood – is going all out with their Halloween themed night, with claims that it’s going to be South Beach’s darkest, most haunting Halloween party. Dead butlers will serve the cocktails, as fog engulfs the dancefloor, with “tricks, treats and spookiness galore” promised for the entire night. And if you think your costume is a winner, then this is the spot for you – Mansion is giving away $2,500 to the best costume of the night, so give it your best (from 11pm, $30 cover)
For the the young at heart
“Nightmare on the beach” at Lummus Park is the perfect place to go if you just want to have some good clean fun this Halloween, and donate to a good case at the same time. There’ll be a life-sized Space Invaders game, a futuristic photo booth, premium open bar, cuisine from Miami’s top restaurants, and live performance from DJ Lee Kalt. The fun starts at 8pm and stretches ‘till 1am, and the $150 entrance fee will benefit the Light Lighthouse Foundation who support struggling families in South Florida.
