Halloween is ready to spook, scare, and inspire. So here are just a few spell-bound treats to sip this hallowed season at some of Pittsburgh’s best restaurants — always on the cusp of the moonrise with new, conceptual tastes.
Ready for a Halloween bash? Join Ritual House for its Halloween Party on Saturday, October 28th, from 6pm – 9pm. Magical Henna art, tarot readings, themed cocktails, and outrageous surprises await. As an added bonus, the most fierce and freakily fabulous will win VIP status-level prizes throughout the evening.
As for the cocktails? They’ve come to play, too. If you dare, try a Pumpkin Spice Martini, Hot Spiced Apple Cider, Witch, Please!, or Poison Apple Potion. Plus, throw back some reimagined Halloween Shots as festive treats, no tricks.
Butcher and the Rye is at it again with another impressive and immersive theme, now its Spookeasy for all to gather and drink deliciously-ghoulish cocktails.
Try the Monster Mash cocktail or other must-tastes like Snow White’s Curse. The Spookeasy is open Friday and Saturday from 6pm – midnight.
Acacia is ready for fall and has rolled out lavish cocktails to celebrate the new season creeping in… Try the Basic Witch made with Wild Turkey 101, St. George NOLA Coffee Liqueur, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, Housemade cold brew, pumpkin pie syrup, and fresh egg white.
Ready for another round? Try the Fig Apple and Mulled Over as fun, fall inspirations.
Bridges & Bourbon has seemingly gone graveyard hunting and has come back with a fearful delight. Its new Rest in Peace cocktail will run a chill down your bony spine as soon as it touches your lips. Made with vodka, Tuaca, apple cider, salted caramel syrup, and Prosecco, this cocktail will keep you dead or alive this Halloween season.
