How To Celebrate Halloween in LA


Halloween is just another excuse to celebrate life. Whether you like to rage amidst a crowd of barely dressed babes, cling to your honey while watching a thriller, or see and be seen in your most fashionably creative costume garb – here are some fabulous ways to partake in LA’s hottest festivities sans guest list.

Rage At The Hollywood Roosevelt

If you like to get your freak on but want to stick to a classy minx-approved venue, get your ticket to the Hollywood Roosevelt’s infamous Halloween party. With a performance by DVBBS, the hotel becomes haunted with 40,000 square feet of property transformed into an amazing maze of ancient crypts and dungeons. Dance on top of the Tropicana Pool, or make out in a corner at Teddy’s, or mingle inside one of the hotel’s glamorous ballrooms. Tickets are $120 just to get in, yup we know – email

Snuggle Up For A Double Feature

On Halloween, acclaimed director Eli Roth will be hosting a marathon of six horror flicks at Quentin Tarrantino’s newly reopened movie theater, including three of his own: Hostel, Cabin Fever and Hostel: Part II. Purchase tickets here.

Saunter Oceanside at The Bungalow

Brent Bolthouse is throwing his infamous Halloween soiree at his oceanside abode, The Bundalow. Dry ice, skulls, and babes in a seaside escape in Santa Monica. Of course the door is a doosy, but it’s open to the public (if you look the part), so we suggest arriving early A.F. or managing to get a reservation.

Dine Intimately Under The Stars

Firefly  is conjuring up Halloween spirit on All Hallows’ Eve from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. al fresco with music, décor and special menu items just for the occasion. Along with regular dinner service, festive dishes include Liquid Eye Ball Ravioli and Listen to Me (peanut butter and white chocolate mousse “ear” dripping with raspberry and black currant “blood”). The ambiance is absolutely stunning and intimate, so this one is for those of you foodies who have a date and don’t want to deal with the crowd or the drunks frolicking around town.

Dance In The Company of High Society

Everyone’s favorite bougie Italian eatery, Cecconi’s, is throwing a dance party in the dining room. That means socialities plus pumpkin margaritas, pumpkin pizza and Nutella bombolini. Make a reservation if you want in. Call: 310-432-2000
