On October 29th, Dances of Vice summons you to join a timeless dance with genteel ghouls and spirit sophisticates in a Samhain soiree from beyond the veil. Under 45 foot ceilings, colossal cobwebbed chandeliers, and opulent French Renaissance balconies, Guests can partake in otherworldly revelry whilst mingling with haunts from eras spanning the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.
Supernatural entertainments abound to the backdrop of Brian Carpenter's devilish Ghost Train Orchestra. And should rigor mortis preclude any dancing activities, perhaps our clandestine absinthe parlor and spectral speakeasy will whet your appetite for the uncanny.
Absinthe Parlor Add-On ($35) features:
- Access to an intimate, hidden Absinthe Parlor room that served as a former speakeasy.
- Early admission at 9:30pm to avoid the GA queue at 10pm.
- One glass of absinthe prepared in absinthe ritual style, served using a traditional absinthe fountain, spoon, and Pontarlier glass.
- Read the guidelines for enjoying a traditional absinthe ritual here.
With the aid of spirits both bubbly and everlasting, the line between the living and the dead will blur for a chilling and chic evening of macabre merriment. Dress code is strictly haunt couture: only the best dressed can go bump in the night.
ABOUT THE VENUE: The Grand Prospect Hall has been a notorious meeting place for the wealthy, weird, and infamous since 1892 — and home to secret societies from the Odd Fellows and Masons to the Knights of Pythias. This haunted slice of history is even said to be the grounds where Al Capone earned the nickname Scarface after being slashed with a knife in a heated row.
