All Dressed Up and So Many Places Go: Halloween Bashes & Where to Get Your Garb

A lot of people are asking where they should get their Monster Mash on  in Newport for the 21 and over set, so see below for all the Halloween bash info. Note: the fun kicks off this Saturday. In the meantime, if you’re looking for original costume ideas, there’s some great spots around town you can scour including Closet Revival, Vintage to Vogue, St. Paul’s Thrift Shop (clothing can be found in the back), Diva on Thames Street, and the Salvation Army (at 76 Broadway in Newport). Have a great costume idea? Share it in the comment section below!

10/22 The International Special Events Society (ISES) is having their annual Halloween Bash at the Hotel Viking this Saturday starting at 7:30pm. (This is the party that was held at Belcourt Castle in years past—next Saturday, 10/29, owner Harle Tinney is hosting her own party at the castle). Entertainment at the ISES Viking bash is brought to you by live band Brother to Brother and DJ Groove, plus costume contests. Tickets are $70 (through Friday, $80 at the door) and includes food stations and two drink tickets (cash bar after you go through both tickets). For more info, click here.

10/27 Christie’s GOSSIP Thursdays is bringing the Halloween on October 27 at 10pm with a costume contest and giveaways hosted by DJ Andy Morris spinning Euro-pop dance hits. Bonus: Free Parking at 41 North, no cover and $7 martinis. Click here for info.

10/28 Jamaica’s own Mighty Diamonds will play the Halloween Party at the Pelham on Friday. Tickets are $12 and being sold at  Water Brothers on Memorial Blvd. Get ‘em quick because the event is expected to sell out. 

10/29 On Saturday, Christie’s throws the party once again. Haunted Halloween includes DJ Mike at the helm, a “dress to kill” contest, “devilishly delicious feast,” a fun photo booth and ghoulish party past midnight. Party starts at 9am, cover charge $20. Stop by in person to RSVP or call Christie’s at 401-847-5400.

10/29 Newport Storm’s annual “Halloween in Newport” event takes places on Saturday starting at 4:30pm. Think of it as trick or treating for adults, only the treat is beer. Participants include Fastnet, Mudville, The Rhino Bar, The  Pelham East, Gaslamp Bar and Grill, and the Newport Blues Café. Visit the event’s Facebook page for details by clicking here.

10/29 Get your “Boo” on Bellevue at Redwood Library’s “Elegant and Eerie Costume Party” on Saturday from 8pm “’til the witching hour,” with dancing a la DJ Butch, costume contests, light fall fare and cocktails. Tickets are $75 each, for more information or to purchase tickets, please call (401) 847-0295 x. 101

10/31 The Big Big Halloween Bash unfolds on the REAL Halloween, Monday Oct.31. A Butch Taylor production (he’ll be spinning all night), enjoy live music with The Ravers, costume contests (for best, worst and most interesting costumes) and guaranteed partying. Doors open at 9pm, cover is $20. Visit the event page on Facebook by clicking here.

Plenty of watering holes around town are welcoming costumed revelers the weekend before Halloween as well (like The Pier–$200 Best Costume prize!), so check to see if your favorite  has plans.
