Time to explore the joys of a grown-up Halloween: Eerie cocktails, holiday playlists, and perhaps even dressing up for a chance to win a prize. Where do we go to do all of the above? Pittsburgh has a graveyard full of Halloween-themed bars open for the whole month of October to light up your heart with a pumpkin-colored glow.
Here, it’s spooky season year-round! You’ll find Halloween decor all over the place and haunted-themed drinks to match. The bar features different events throughout the week and is best known for its karaoke nights.
This is the place to go if you’re looking for an immersive dining experience. You’ll sit down in a haunted carnival where you can enjoy seasonal drinks. The cafe goes all out for its limited pop-up run and even encourages guests to come in costume.
For lovers of everything Tim Burton, this pop-up is for you. Featuring props from movies like Beetlejuice and plenty of neon paint, it’s the perfect photo opportunity. Plus, the $25 ticket to get in includes a free Burton-themed drink.
The regular restaurant scene transforms into a cocktail-only Spookeasy bar on Fridays and Saturdays. All cocktails are Halloween-themed to match the glowing decor covering every inch. Be sure to try their Monster Mash cocktail that’s bright green in this unique ambiance.
This ghostly bar is a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community to get their haunt on. It’s open to people of any orientation and carries monster-themed cocktails like the Frankenstein drink. The bar celebrates ghouls all year long and even features sober nights and non-alcoholic beverages.
This winery turns into a Halloween bar one month a year. You can enjoy special events for weekends in October at the pop-up. The Haunted Hide-Away includes a Witches Brew drink menu, tarot card readings, costume contests, live music, and more.
