Start getting your costume together for a big ol' spooky halloween shindig in a haunted garden.

Lovers of fancy dress and all things spooky should make tracks to Coogee Bay Hotel this Halloween, when the venue will be decked out in all the zombie, witch and ghoul finery you can ask for. Heaps of food and drink specials will be on offer, along with plenty of tunes and prizes for best dressed. It'll all go down in The Garden on Thursday, October 31, with the party kicking on until the wee hours.
First up, expect themed eats all day. There'll be smoked cheeseburgers served on a blood red bun for lunch. Or you can grab a 'Witching Hour' squid ink risotto, jet-black candy apples and ghoulish buffalo wing pies, which are made to look like a ghoulish figure with bright green mashed potato eyes and mouth. Need a pick-me-up after all this freaky food? You can order a coffee and it'll come with some Halloween-themed latte art.
The cocktails will also take on a spooky theme, with a complimentary cocktail on offer to the first 50 people through the door after 7pm in costume. And there'll be a big ol' bowl of Halloween punch with floating lychee 'eyeballs' in it, along with a few cauldron-style smoking numbers and plenty of brightly coloured 'potions' to boot, too.
You can then hit the dance floor, with DJs spinning tunes from 7pm till midnight, including Purple Sneakers DJs playing from 10pm—12am. And don't forget to put on your most ghoulish gown, with prizes being awarded to the best dressed individual, couple and group.
