A Netherworld Halloween 2021
To celebrate the spookiest time of the year, Fortitude Valley's arcade bar is hosting three different monster mashes.
When you're a bar that nods to all things spooky in your name, and you boast more than a couple of monster-themed pinball and arcade machines, then you're going to like the end of October. Netherworld does, of course. Indeed, the Valley pub celebrates Halloween in the expected style each and every year.
So, what's on the agenda? Reflecting the kind of year 2020 has served up, Netherworld is hosting a couple of different Halloween events. Some of us want to mark the occasion on the actual date, and some of us want to have some themed fun across the days leading up to it. Here, you can do both.
From 7.30pm on Thursday, October 28, the Doomed Sideshow will get the spooky spirit flowing. It's also part of the Valley Fiesta, so expect off-kilter performances to kick things off with a scare.
Then, from the same time on Saturday, October 30, it's The Night Before Halloween. It's the party before the party, complete with costumes, cocktails, themed food and appropriate tunes. Yes, it'll be a monster mash — whether or not you mash some buttons. Dress up, however, and you'll get five free gaming tokens.
Finally, from 6pm on Sunday, October 31, A Netherworld Halloween reaches its climax. The same token giveaway applies, so find your most frightening threads. Then, you can simply hang out, drink, hit up the horror-themed pinball tables, check out the carved pumpkins and eat food to suit the occasion.
