Miami’s best Halloween parties 2018
Wynwood’s EDM horror fest is back with a pretty stacked lineup: RL Grime, Duke Dumont, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Galantis and more. The Hallo-Rave comes to Mana Wynwood this year. Expect somewhere between Ultra and Halloween Horror Nights.
On the Friday before Halloween, the king of modern fashion and artistic director for Louis Vuitton, Virgil Abloh, showcases yet another of his endless talents: DJing. That’s right, the bottomless pit of awesomeness known as Virgil is better than you at yet another thing, but at least you don’t need fashion week credentials to get into this. Put some effort into that costume, though. Virgil is watching.
No. 3 Social is killing two birds with one party this October: a Halloween bash and an anniversary party. Both occasions shall be celebrated on October 27 with plenty of delicious cocktails and the sounds of Miami faves Afrobeta. Oh, and the winner of the costume contest goes home with $500.
If you’re looking to party in style on Halloween, look no further. Not only is Ghoulish Garden going to take place in a gorgeous setting at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, but it boasts an open bar, psychic readings, a DJ, food and plenty more. It’s the adult version of a pillowcase full of candy.
Veza Sur wants to see your best Halloween costume for its second annual Triki Triki party. Prepare to rumba the night away with DJ sets and live music from local favorites Locos for Juana. The night’s best costume wins a $100 bar tab.
Does France do Halloween? We know Miami sure does. So it’s probably for the best that French electro legend Yelle is celebrating the spooky holiday by getting nice and funky in the Magic City. Catch her performing a live set at Club Space’s first-floor music venue, AKA the Ground.
The Biltmore promises a luxurious affair at its annual Halloween bash. Indulge in an open bar, feast on a buffet dinner, enjoy live entertainment and participate in multiple costume contests. Tickets aren’t cheap (starting at $135) but if you’re into mingling with Miami’s movers and shakers—this is the party for you.
This huge haunted experience is the biggest of its kind in South Florida. This year, two attractions—Blossom Ln and Area 13—promise to scare the crap out of you. Tour abandoned houses and explore the supernatural if you’re brave enough. Liquid courage is available for the 21-and-over crowd. 1455 Northwest 107th Ave.
Want something a tad more elevated than your average zombie and vampire Halloween? The Conrad offers a classy Halloween alternative with its Gatsby Masquerade. The theme is the 1920s and you are encouraged to drink as much champagne as the great Gatsby himself. But unlike those tragic characters, you’re smart enough to take an Uber home.
Laidback Luke has the honors of spinning a Halloween set at E11even this year. The holiday falls on a Wednesday but, of course, at E11even that doesn’t matter. The club is open and ready to party 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Have some coffee, Luke!
The waterfront Wharf is embracing its inner pirate this Halloween. Costumes are just about mandatory at the “Pirates of the Wharf” party and rumor has it there will be a haunted pirate ship docked at the bar. Expect plenty of dancing, booze, food and maybe a pirate or seventeen.
For once, the nightmare on Brickell Ave isn’t the traffic, rather W Miami’s rooftop Halloween costume bash. All werewolves should have a clear view of the moon from the 50th floor rooftop spot. If you still have any juice left in the tank, W Miami is also doing a vampire party the very next day.
