Where to Get Your Halloween Spooks in Athens



Halloween is not an officially observed holiday in Greece by any stretch of the imagination. However, who can say no to dressing up, going out and eating candy? As the tradition of celebrating Halloween sweeps through Greece, there are an increasing amount of spots where you can get your spook on!

Here are some of the top parties for you to check out this Halloween in Athens:

The Halloween Party at the Hilton Galaxy Bar on Wednesday, October 31 promises a treat. The luxurious Athens hotel becomes dark and haunting for one night.

The rooftop terrace, one of the most beautiful in the entire city, will present DJ sets and evening cocktails geared to this special night. The person with the best costume will win an overnight stay for two in an executive room overlooking the Acropolis.

The “Horror After Dark” event at the Industrial Museum of Technopolis on Friday, November 1st promises another scary night, featuring famous British DJ and radio producer Jamz Supernova, while Stefanos Tsitsopoulos will be at the top of the decks.

Specialized makeup artists will handle the transformations while the “Larp Project: Athens!” Team has prepared a horror movie role-playing game for guests.

This Halloween, you can also stop by Little Kook, at 17 Κaraiskaki Street, near Monastiraki.  The cafe will be completely transformed with Halloween decor, while the inside has been transformed into what they owners call the “Witches Tea Room.”

The spiderwebs, icky gigantic bugs, floating heads, and thematic menu will add to the spooky spirit! The street outside the cafe will also sport that Halloween feel, decked out in Halloween decor.
