A Netherworld Halloween 
Netherworld – 186 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley


Netherworld’s Halloween is back again this year! On Halloween night (Wednesday the 31st) from 6pm til the witching hour. With even more frightful events that will make you kick yourself for staying in. Dress up in your most frightful and ghoulish costumes you can think of – traditional vampires, ghosts, and mummies are always accepted. Or dare to be creative and come up with something modern and just as horrifying (sexy Trump, anyone?).

Of course there will be prizes for the best dressed! And as a reward for getting into the ‘spirit’ (that counts as a pun, right?) Netherworld are giving away 5 free Netherworld gaming tokens, and a Halloween enamel pin designed by Schlock Lobster, to anyone in costume.
The devilish DJ El Norto will be spinning your Halloween favourites (Thriller is a certified Halloween song – but don’t look that up) whilst you sip on creepy cocktails and munch on terrifying treats from the Hellmouth diner. Careful boils and ghouls, Netherworld want you to dance until you die.
