Las Vegas always has tricks and treats to offer — and Halloween weekend is no exception. Whether you’re looking for some spooky haunts or a frighteningly fantastic affair, it’s going to be nothing short of a “Monster Mash” — a graveyard smash — in the Entertainment Capital of the World this Halloween!

 

ENTERTAINMENT

 

AREA15

The experiential art and entertainment complex has plenty of tricks and treats this Halloween! Celebrating 25 years of sexy soirees, the Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball returns with its signature lineup of unique performance acts, a roster of top-tier DJs, and some of the best costume eye candy you’ll ever feast your eyes on! The venue also boasts a performance by English DJ duo CamelPhat, and its regular lineup of otherworldly offerings. A Black Mirror episode just waiting to happen, Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart is where consumerism and creepy collide. Into sci-fi? Lost Spirits Distillery is a Jules Verne fantasy realized. Complete your night of thrills with a galactic ride on Haley’s Comet zipline, letting off some steam at the Dueling Axes throwing lounge, and a psychic journey of abstract geometry with Museum Fiasco’s immersive “Cluster” audiovisual installation.

Halloween at The Underground

Get into The Great Gatsby spirit this Halloween at The Mob Musem’s Underground speakeasy and distillery, where guests are immersed in a Roaring Twenties’ experience complete with craft cocktails and live entertainment. The Downtown lounge celebrates the All Hallows’ Eve holiday this year with live jazz, a 1920s-era costume contest, and playful Halloween-themed refreshments. So, ask the bartender for a Witch’s Brew or A Murder of Crows — after you supply the password at the door, of course. (Hint: It’s Heebie-Jeebies.)
