As indoor dining and the entertainment world gets back into full swing following the coronavirus pandemic, there are no shortage of options to celebrate Halloween this weekend.
Originally known as All Hallows Eve and traditionally held on 31 October each year, Halloween has become a global event to remember the dead. Events include ‘trick or treating’ for children, carving pumpkins, apple-bobbing and, of course, dressing up in scary costumes for Halloween parties.
Here’s our top 3 Halloween picks from Turkish London.
Halloween Special at Kibele Restaurant (Great Portland Street, W1), 29-30 October 2021
The prize for best Halloween décor goes to Kibele. The Central London restaurant has transformed its stunning downstairs cabaret lounge into a ghoulish den, where this weekend zombies will be out in force as part of the entertainment.
Kibele has a special Halloween menu with aptly-named cocktails such as Devil Pornstar and Venom – “The Liquorice Monster”, and a Trick or Treat set menu, which includes hot and cold starters, a main meal and dessert. There’s also plenty of live music.
