Come see which are the best NYC Halloween parties and events in 2019! There is just so much going on for all styles and ages!

If you’ve been to New York before, you know for a fact that the NYC Halloween parties are the most anticipated ones of the year, and is definitely when some of the best parties and events happen in town!

But, if you’ve never to been to NYC, or if you’re finally booking your ticket to come explore the city in October, you have to know that New Yorkers take this date e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y seriously!

I mean, believe it or not, people start putting together their costumes months in advance. Not to say, many know their next year costume as soon as the Halloween week is over!

The city gets a full make over with some of the most creative decorations beautifying home façades, as well as store windows. The countdown starts weeks in advance to this big day!

Many of the best parties happen every year, and the teams behind them definitely get creative and always surprise.

On the other hand, there are other events around town that are great for families and kids (for under 21 years).

Take a look at the 14 best NYC Halloween parties and events in 2019:


#1 Blood Manor

(Looks like Jimmy and Kevin Hart had a pretty fun time there…lol!)

This is definitely one of the best NYC Halloween events you could ever go to, but I have to confess… I honestly never had the courage to go to! I’ve heard SO much about this, had friends attend, but I never had the guts! This house of horror seems so real that I get palpitations just thinking about it.

It’s considered not only one of the most amazing haunted houses in New York, but it was recently voted the #2 best in the entire country!

Located inside a historic building Tribeca, you’ll experience 5,000 square feet of themed rooms, corridors, and a labyrinth of passageways that will challenge your deepest fears.

Now, a creepy and quite intersting story: Mathew Brady, the renowned Civil War-era photographer, was responsible for photographing President Abraham Lincoln’s portrait that today is used in our $5 bill. After a nasty accident and 2 broken legs, he got pretty ill and eventually died. Now, the curious part…some sources say that he actually committed suicide… WHERE? Inside the building where Blood Manor is located!! So, be sure to stay alert, because you might just “bump” into some real ghosts.

If you’re still curious, you can see more on this YouTube video.

As they say, “Go ahead and scream… it’s not going to matter.”

Dates: Multiple days available until November 9th.

Company XIV is known for its burlesque attractions that have attracted a huge crowd throughout the year! And, I have to say, New Yorkers love a burlesque show that mixes circus performances, sensuality, comedy, dance and more!

In addition, expect lots of magic, opera and cocktails inspired by your favorite character!

This year the party is called “City of Gods by House of Yes & ZERO” and, for those who don’t know, House of Yes is one of the coolest spots in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

The party will be at another event venue, but organized by the folks at House of Yes and I can say … this party promises to be amazing! I already guaranteed my ticket, since it runs out super fast and I’m sure it will be one of the top NYC Halloween parties!

They invite by saying, “We salute all deities, demigods and demons, gods and goddesses, creatures of creation and those dedicated to hedonism beyond the human realm.” WUHU!

More about the event:

City of Gods is hosted at the absolutely magnificent Grand Prospect Hall in South Brooklyn, a 4-floor venetian hall with 15+ rooms of music, dancing, performance, and discovery. The event features some of the biggest and best Burning Man camps – Comfort & Joy, Disco Knights, DISTRIKT, GlamCocks, Mayan Warrior, Pink Mammoth, and Tierra Bomba – and notoriously, we do not release the music lineup before the party.

The whole vibe is to invite people to experience the event with open hearts and minds, not to chase any specific activity, but rather to come ready to explore and connect. Saturday tickets will be sold out by this weekend and Friday tickets are moving fast as well.

Dates: October 25th and 26th

VR World NYC: A Virtual Reality Experience

Culture Music VR World NYC

As we wake up each day, Virtual Reality is becoming more and more parts of our daily lives, and obviously, our future! Come explore what VR World NYC is all about!

As we wake up each day, Virtual Reality, or VR as we most commonly say, is becoming more and more parts of our daily lives, and obviously, our future!

Today I’m sharing with you my experience at VR World NYC. They are the biggest virtual reality center on this side of the globe with 2 floors and over 50 games, films and experiences for you to try!

The video above shows you some of the ones I have the most fun with, but I do have to say, they are all quite entertaining. You can definitely spend several hours there, since there is just so much to see.

So, what is Virtual Reality?

In a very simples way, it’s an interactive technology that is computer generated and creates experiences that are not possible in the real world, using many of our senses.

And, in the middle of New York’s chaotic 34th Street, you’d never expect to find a place like this. It’s not only super amusing for kids and I’m sure all adults will love it too! I certainly had a great time!

Oh! It’s also a great spot to host a party! There are several cool spaces for groups from 20 and over 400! So be sure to contact them for more details. You can also contact us to help you out or even organize a corporate/team experience.


One of the highlights at VR World NYC: Moveo

You can me inside this one in the video! It’s the first 360º free-rotation VR simulator. You go through fully immersive 3D worlds, flying through space and you experience the gravitational pull of objects nearby.

Exclusive to VR World NYC, MOVEO is harnessing cutting edge technology to create a truly immersive experience.

The simulator is the first of its kind to use independent three axis rotation, connecting the human experience with a responsive audial, visual and physical environment.

I also really enjoyed the experiences on the 2nd floor, once specifically that I was rock climbing in Thailand. It was just SO real. My legs literally got numb by virtually climbing up a cliff and looking down!

It’s crazy how you literally feel everything as if you were actually there!

As I said above, it’s a great place for kids! But, if you’re coming to New York City with kids, but you’re not sure if it’s a good idea, take a look to see all the infinite reasons why NYC is great for kids!
