Come beyond the veil with us in 200-year old spooky Salem Old Town Hall, and reveal a time of the city’s ghostly past, when liquid spirits were drunk in secret and beautiful flappers haunted the halls. That’s right: IT'S A HAUNTED SPEAKEASY PARTY in America’s most beloved haunted city!
Bring a date or bring your friends and experience a 1920’s themed haunted party like you’ve never before. We’ll provide a vintage dance lesson so you can dance the lindy-hop and flaunt your foxtrot alongside ghastly specters from prohibition-days-past! Drink with the ghosts of old town hall through a theatre experience provided by History Alive. And in the spooky heart of New England, you’ll find yourself dancing alongside ghosts and ghouls to music by our very own Niki Luparelli and The Gravediggers! You’ll feel even cooler when partying with the poltergeists knowing that this same town hall was where the cult classic 90’s film Hocus Pocus filmed their famed halloween party scene.
Enjoy cocktails and spirits of the era whilst the very best of New England’s Burlesque and Drag performers entertain and bewitch you with spooky performances and thrilling numbers. Test if your date is a vampire with our very own photobooth and complimentary photo-keepsake by Captured Exposure, and share in the delicious appetizers and small bites! We have a cash bar with an ATM on site so you can try all the prohibition-era cocktails and spirits you’d like. And don’t forget, we’ll be touring Miss Havisham’s Parlour on the main floor of Town Hall for an immersive experience based on the novel by Charles Dickens.
