Halloween Party Guide

Here at Artvoice we hold Halloween parties to the highest standards. You can’t just throw a DJ and some fake spider webs into a club and get onto this list. We combed through a plethora of creep-tastic events to find the ones with some real bite. So grab your spookiest (or sluttiest) costume, a Red Bull, and get ready to dance…’til you die!jill greenberg
