Bubbling cauldrons of soup, freshly squeezed "juices of the dead", witches' pasta — yep, Ananas Bar and Brasserie is rising to the occasion this Halloween. Since delivering a bonkers mad hatters' brunch in May and a glamorous spring racing feast in September, the team has been turning its next-level talents to edible horrors.

Your brunch ticket will score you as much as you can eat. And you can rest assured that every dish will be as scarily delicious as its looks. Prepare for perfectly sliced cured meats; slow-roasted leg of spring lamb, with rosemary, garlic, honey and roasted pumpkin, served as "dead of the night"; fish cakes jazzed up with a "sinister spread" of celeriac remoulade and confit lemon zest; "Dracula bites" of beetroot cured salmon, watercress, hard-boiled egg and horseradish creme fraiche in a pretzel roll; and loads more.

Meanwhile, dessert will take the form of a cobwebbed graveyard, complete with edible spiders, coffins and soil, veiled by misty dry ice.

For $55, melt your fears with two hours' worth of bottomless champagne. And/or sample one of the specially created cocktails, like the Eye to Eye: Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Lillet Blanc, Massenez ginger liquer, lime, fresh lemon juice, lychee puree and ginger syrup, served with ice, a "lychee eyeball" and fairy floss spider’s web garnish.

As usual, expect the venue's interior to be utterly transformed, according to the theme. You may as well dress the part.
