I can’t believe that Halloween is just around the corner, again! How crazy fast did this year go by, right?
We ALL know that Halloween is the best time of the year with some of the most amazing parties spread throughout the entire city, or country! People travel from all over the globe and come to New York to enjoy this special weekend and go home with endless stories to tell!
Well, like last year, we decided to share with you which will be some of the top parties in the city.
Where am I going? I’m also still not sure for one simple reason: the type of music I enjoy is totally different from the music my friends enjoy! I love psychedelic trans (minus the drugs, lol) and my friends just h-a-t-e it! Ha! The past 2 years, I went to Circo Loco, that is also listed below and loved it!
Tickets are running out and getting super expensive, so be sure to figure out where you’re going and guarantee your ticket(s)!
Oh! And besides the parties, I listed a few costume and make up stores to get you ready for the party!
You’ve probably heard of Sleep No More, right? If not, it’s the city’s top theatrical experience inside the McKittrick Hotel, where they recreated a non-chronological show portraying the famous Macbeth, written by Shakespeare. Everyone’s face has a mask, preserving all identities and making everyone anonymous.
This is one of the top parties in Manhattan for one simple reason: these guys know how to put a party together!
As they say: “Guests are strongly encouraged to arrive dressed in expressive creations that give regard to the residences tradition of deviant witchcraft – be it a witch, sorcerer, enchanter, vampire, beast, or monster. Alternatively, you could come in dress inspired by the occult, in all black.”
Location: 530 West 27th Street
Ah!! This is the party I told you in the intro that I love and I’ve been to the past two years! If you’re into electronic music – the type that makes your bones shake – then, this is certainly the place for you!
They always organize it in one of those huge Brooklyn warehouses far from everything! The organization is great, the DJ’s lineup is always fantastic with international names and the costumes are truly creative.
Party starts pretty late, but I usually arrive early because lines get crazy. But, if you’re a night owl, you’ll love it!
House of Yes
The team behind the House of Yes are also experts in: party! They are known for throwing some of the best events in the entire New York and their creativity sure amazes everyone!
Do you like neon make up, colorful costumes, live artistic presentations, beautiful circus acts, community vibe, great music, DJs, and feeling like you’re part of something bigger? Then this is for you!
You’ll be able to enjoy 4 different parties they’ve organized for Halloween, so see which one if your favorite!
Location: 2 Wyckoff Avenue
The party this year is called “Garden of Eden with Black Coffee” and the team behind the party said that it will be a dream journey leading us back to our lost paradise.
“This year’s celebration is dedicated to our beautiful and beloved planet, Gaia. We may come together to protect it so we can retrieve our lost paradise.”
And, the party will happened at a beautiful place called Duggal Greenhouse, in Brooklyn.
Location: 63 Flushing Avenue, Building 268
Titanic Masquerade – Pier Pressure NYC Halloween Yacht Party
Do you like boats? Ok…let me rephrase. Do you like beautiful yachts, with gorgeous people, good music and a priceless view of Manhattan’s skyline?
Well, if your answer was yes, then continue reading! The Titanic Masquerade party will take place in a yacht that will float down the famous Hudson River for 3 unforgettable hours!
You’ll be able to see not only the breathtaking Freedom Tower at the One World and our Lady Liberty, but also other memorable sights.
Plus, everything paired with the music of some of the top DJs!
Twilight Tour no Green-Wood Cemetery
Last Halloween, I attended another party that also happened inside the renowned Green-Wood Cemetery, in Brooklyn. And, I literally loved it!
The party I went to was later at night, but this year they are doing a pre-event from 5pm – 7pm, when the sun starts setting. We all know that this is the time where cemeteries start getting fun, right? Lol!
If you are like me, you will LOVE this experience! I really thought it was unforgettable and still, you’ll be able to head to another party after it!
Oh! And just thought you’d like to know: the experience ends in a place completely off bounds to the common public: inside one of their catacombs.
Location: 500 25th Street
In general, haunted houses usually corny and not really scary, but I can guarantee that after you walk inside Blook Manor, you’ll have quite a hard time going to bed at night.
This is one of the most famous haunted houses in New York and surely, the bloodiest one you’ll ever see. The production behind it all is surreal and will get your bones shaking!
Take a look at the video below and let’s see if you’ll have the courage to enter it.
Location: 359 Broadway
Village Halloween Parade
Like every single year, on October 31st, the famous Village Halloween Parade takes over the streets of the West Village.
The parade starts at 7pm and will finish around 10:30pm. The costumes are truly amazing, the dancers and artists are extremely talented and the union of this all makes it one of the most iconic moments of the year in New York.
If you’d like to be part of it, check out their website to see how it works!
Cipriani 42nd Street
If you’re looking for a super high-end party, with some of the most gorgeous gals and guys in town, Cipriani 42nd Street is known of hosting this type of party!
Party starts at 10pm and even though this 31st will be on a Wednesday, do expect a full house!

Dances of Vice
This is another party that sells out super quickly, so be sure to guarantee your ticket asap, if you’d like to attend it.
This year, the name of the party is “Cabaret de L’Enfer: Heaven & Hell Halloween Ball”. As they explain: “This year’s legendary Halloween stomp sin-spired by the notorious Heaven and Hell nightclubs of 1890s Paris.
Experience supernatural visions of paradise and the underworld at the iconic Capitale, a majestic multi-level, multi-room 19th century vault, to the sordid sounds of angel horns and devil trombones—you are invited!”
