We’re in the same quandary as you. We’ve been trying on costumes, but just haven’t seen an outfit that screams ‘ME’ yet. So, for all you spooky, sexy, single Londoners, we’ve compiled a list of the best places to grind a ghoul on Halloween weekend.
At the appropriately named Slagbox Halloween Party at the Old Queens Head, you bring a single friend of the opposite sex in exchange for some assistance from the creepy compares, who promise to help you pin down the devil of your dreams. Costume guidelines suggest you dress as your favourite disasters, which should make some excellent talking points. Our very own Alexi Duggins will be DJing, so if all else fails you could always go give him a smooch instead.
If you’ve been taking special makeup courses to ensure you strike the perfect balance between possessed and pretty, then we have a suitably more exclusive ethereal event for you. Members club Apartment58, whose previous guests include Jessie J, Nicole Scherzinger and Azealia Banks (they probably won’t be there though!), is opening up to 300 Londoners for one night only on October 30. With live matchmaking, a DJ and ‘flirt cards,’ this night describes itself as being for ‘cool, professional singles,’ so if you identify as such, get involved.
Zoo Bar Halloween Party
If you’re a demon who can’t wait to prey on some unsuspecting victims (ie. randy tourists) then Leicester Square’s Zoo Bar’s night could be just the one for you. The locks and keys provided could come in handy at the end of the evening, but just to reiterate, this IS in Leicester Square. Consider that a warning.
Singles Pub Crawl
Enough of this messing about. We all know you don’t need fine-tuned social skills to score a forgettable fumble with Little Red Riding Hood at the back of a Wetherspoon’s pub. If drowning your single sorrows and getting shitfaced with a bunch of lads and lasses is more your bag, then the Singles Pub Crawl on November 2 might be just what you’ve been waiting for. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you when you see your Halloween catch finally unmasks.
Or if this all sounds a tad too sordid for your liking, find you perfect night out on our Halloween hub.
