Just in time for Halloween, Loreley’s Halloween Haunted Beer Garden is filled with over-the-top Halloween décor, cocktails, daily specials, four Halloween parties, including Barbie’s World Halloween Party (10/29) and fan favorite pumpkin kegs. The heated outdoor garden has been transformed into a haunted spot filled with witches, zombies, ghouls, cobwebs, ghosts, corpses hanging from the ceiling, possessed babies and other bone chilling surprises.
Guests can enjoy the Magic Potion Margarita which combines butterfly pea flower infused tequila, triple sec, lemon and lime and served in potion bottles that guests can mix together themselves for a color-changing drink with a plume of smoke - a witchy (and Instagrammable) concoction. The Bloody IV Bag (rum punch and cherry) is served in an actual IV bag – a vampire’s dream! Guests can also warm up with hot cocktails like the Hot Bourbon Cider and German Glühwein (mulled wine).
Halloween celebrations will be in full force all weekend as well as on All Hallows’ Eve with four parties, kicking off with Day of the Dead Party on Friday, October 27th from 7pm, for which all staff will have sugar skull makeup with free makeup for guests between 7-9pm by professional makeup artists (first come, first served).
On Sunday, October 29th, it’s Barbie time with the Barbie’s World Halloween Party. Starting at 2pm, guests can wear their cutest pink outfits and adorable Ken looks (so will the staff!) while enjoying cocktails like the Malibu Barbie, a pink Malibu rum punch and Ice Spice with mezcal, ruby red grapefruit, and jalapeno; plus, for poolside vibes, Barbie’s Flamingo, a large Frosé (rosé, vodka, fresh pureed strawberries) served in an inflatable flamingo that guests get to keep! All drinks will be capped with a mini pink cowgirl hat.
On October 28th and 31st guests can show off their best Halloween looks for the Loreley Costume Contest with three winners receiving gift cards (worth $50 - $250) each night.
