Where to Celebrate Halloween in NYC

No tricks, just treats
by Kerry Jepsen on Oct 19, 2016 in Roundups
Halloween is upon us and NYC has a full bag of tantalizing ways to celebrate the spookiest time of the year. We’ve rounded up the best spots to hit up this Halloween weekend so that the scariest bit won’t be your bar tab.
 
With 100 bars participating this annual event has New York ghouls going door-to-door for some of the best drink specials in town. Bud and Bud Light drafts are $2, with plenty of 2-for-1 drink special and tickets are only $20. Costumes required, duh.
 
This 18-century New England inspired bar decked out with a wood interior and flame lanterns is sure to make it on the list. Delicious comfort food bites are met with scary good cocktails and an extensive draft selection. Trick or treat here and you might get seasonal special to boot. (119 15th St.; 212-777-5101)
 
The mad scientist Albert Trummer, behind Chinatown’s notorious apothecary Apothéke, has made his New York come back with Sanatorium. Decked out like an old school hospital waiting room, high brow cocktails are concocted and served with medical vile and beakers and the whole aesthetic and a spooky experience even if it wasn’t Halloween. (14 Avenue C.)
 
This college sports bar plays host to NYC’s annual Fright Night. Ghosts, goblins, and monsters of all kinds will gather at Bar None for what will most definitely be a Halloween party like no other. Tickets are $10 at the door but are available for pre order as well. (98 3rd Ave.; 212-777-6663)
 
This fun loving, Tim Burton themed bar is fully decked out with hanging chandeliers, a doorman dressed as Beetlejuice who will frighten you, and gothic memorabilia making it the perfect setting for a Halloween must-visit location. (308 E 6th St.; 646-510-4786)
 
The upscale Italian eatery will turn into the masquerade ball of the season. Angels and demons will be the theme this year, fusing a little naughty and nice, so get those wings out and horns on. With a live DJ and an open vodka bar for the first hour this masquerade ball is sure to be full of thrills and chills. (420 Park Ave.; 212-317-2908)
 
This establishment is a New York legend and, truly, perhaps the perfect place to be on Halloween. It’s one of the oldest bars in New York and the creaky wood interior is evidence of that. This historical landmarked building also happens to be haunted (or so they say) and it has made its way onto several lists for ghost hunting enthusiasts across the nation. ( Pearl St.; 212-968-1776)
 
Velvet trim bar and dimmed red lighting adorn this sex fueled Greenwich Village haunt. The vibe also gives way to a perfect halloween location for those seeking the sensual side of the season. (94 W Houston St.; 212-539-0808)
 
This Theatrical cocktail den located within the McKittrick Hotel was once the go to pit stop for the audience members of the Sleep No More production. The decor is adorned with playing cards, velvet curtains, and comedy-tragedy masks giving way to mystique and pleasure. There is no menu, cocktails are made to order giving a whole new meaning to trick or treat. This Halloween The Maderley Bar will be a monster mash dance party with live DJs and an open bar all night long. (530 W 27th St.; 212-904-1883)
