Trick or treat, anyone? Halloween isn't widely celebrated in India. However, I do know of some venues in Mumbai where you can get into the spirit (ah, pardon the pun!).
- Bonobo in Bandra is throwing a theme party. Dress up as your worst nightmare. Entry fee is 500 rupees ($12), and make up artists will be on hand to help transform you. The bar, which is known for its creative cocktails, is concocting some special ones for the occasion.
- Valhalla, opposite Churchgate station, is having a masquerade party. Entry cost is 2,200 rupees ($48), plus taxes. For this price, you'll be able to eat and drink to your heart's content. Mask is also provided.
- Hard Rock Cafe, one of Mumbai's best live music venues, is holding a Michael Jackson tribute party. The Thriller music video is the theme. Head there for free entry and a complimentary shot at the door.
- Headquarters, in Colaba, is encouraging its customers to turn up dressed in a dead celebrity costume. Those who do will get discounted or free drinks. In addition, ladies will get a free shot every hour.
