Halloween Party Guide for Washington, D.C.

You may be too old for traditional trick-or-treating, but grown-ups can have some treats of their own on this debaucherous holiday. Whether you’re going goblin or sexy siren, there’s a Halloween party — from massive bar crawls and blow-outs to a chic rooftop soiree — for souls of every stripe.

Halloween Graveyard Jam
9 PM–2 AM, October 26; $22
Hard Rock Cafe (999 E St. NW)
Win ridiculous prizes (such as a Caribbean vacation!) at this blow-out event, which has attracted 1,000 guests in years past. Party includes DJ, caricaturist, candy, door prizes, a serious costume contest, bobbing for apples and other party games.

Nightmare on M Street
5 PM–1 AM, October 26; $20
The Front Page (1333 New Hampshire Ave. NW)
With specials such as $2 Coors Lights, $3 Blue Moons, and $4 Bacardi drinks at more than 30 Dupont bars, this yearly tradition — a D.C. institution — also includes food and shot specials and a midnight costume contest at McFadden’s, all for one ticket price (which increases as event nears).

Halloween Social
8 PM–3 AM, October 31; $40
P.O.V. at the W Hotel (515 15th St. NW)
A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit The Washington Humane Society, so you can be charitable and party in style on the rooftop of the W Hotel. DJ Ghost and DJ Philipz will spin at the costumes-required party, which will feature a cash bar for the spot’s craft cocktails. Best costume winner will receive a hotel sleepover package.

Halloween Costume Party
8 PM–midnight, October 31; $30
Mansion on O Street (2020 O St. NW)
With its tchotchke-laden 100 rooms and more than 32 secret doors, this eccentric hotel and museum is the perfect setting for celebrating All Hallows’ Eve. Keep the drinks flowing at the cash bar while you partake in the chocolate fountain, treasure hunt and costume party to the tunes of a DJ.

Second Annual Day of the Dead Party
10 PM–3 AM, November 1
Bandolero (3241 M St. NW)
Details are coming soon, but the Dia de Los Muertos bash at this Georgetown Mexican joint — with its already dark, spooky motif — is sure to be festive and feature margarita specials.
