Emerald City Trapeze Arts
At Obscura, costumed trapeze artists — and other aerialists — will put on a show high above the dance floor while below you’ll sip specialty cocktails and sample seasonal dishes… and try not to think about how you can’t even move like that on the ground.
The Fremonster Spectacular is a grown-up affair featuring multiple DJs, sultry gogo dancers and ariel performers, a costume contest, and more, including a food truck in the courtyard.
Cost: Tickets start at $49
To be fair, it’s Seattle’s ONLY hip hop Halloween boat party, but that doesn’t make this three hour cruise from Lake Union featuring some of the city’s best DJs, a full bar, and more, any less extravagant.
The Hot Stove Society has enlisted an acclaimed bartender to not only host a grown-up cocktail party featuring a handful of All Hallows Eve-appropriate beverages (the Night of the Vampire with Rye, Ruby Port, Black Peppercorn Syrup, Strong Black Tea), but also teach you how to make ’em at home.
The First Hill hotel puts a darker twist on its usual high tea with one designed for witches — seasonal teas, savory sandwiches, Halloween-inspired petit fours, and broody harp music. Costumes ARE encouraged.
North Lake Union
Take a two and a half hour ride around Lake Washington/Lake Union with a ton of people wearing leg warmers, or just one glove. Why? ‘Cause in addition to pouring cocktails, and stocking a taco bar(!) the people behind this cruise will be pumping the biggest hits of the ’80s all night.
First Pick Design
This decidedly adult event features fetish-themed cabaret and ariel performances and live Japanese bondage — and that’s just the start. There will also be a pop-up sex shop…err, sex boutique, appearences by at least one legendary pornstar, a champagne toast, and more.
October 26 & October 31
Spend the Saturday before Halloween, and the day itself, with hundreds of new costumed friends enjoying drink specials ($3 beers, $5 shots, etc.), at some of Seattle’s most iconic bars, including Kells, The Crocodile, and more.
Cost: $15-$45 plus booze
