As the nights draw in and the witching hour approaches, Trader Vic’s Dubai has announced plans to be transformed into a haunted haven this Halloween.
The island paradise that is both Trader Vic’s Madinat and Trader Vic’s Mai Tai Lounge JBR, are celebrating the holiday by transforming both Polynesian themed venues on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st October into a frightfully decadent werewolf’s playground as the ‘Werewolves of London’ descend upon them.
‘Werewolves of London’ is this year’s international theme running across Trader Vic’s locations worldwide, uniting each venue together for one frighteningly fun night.
Trader Vic’s played a starring role in the hit 1978 song by Warren Zevon “Werewolves of London” with the lyrics “I saw a werewolf drinkin’ a Pina Colada at Trader Vic’s and his hair as perfect” being the inspiration behind this year’s event.
The event is named in honour of both the song and Trader Vic’s London, one of the brand’s most iconic locations in that it was the first branch to open outside of America over half a century ago.
Both venues in Dubai will be offering special drinks promotions including Halloween variations on the classic cocktail, Pina Colada, or ‘Bahia’ as it is lovingly referred to at Trader Vic’s. A ghoulish menu of favourite cocktails and terrifying tidbits will also be offered inviting you to indulge your wildest werewolf fantasies. Let’s hope the moon is full!
Although not compulsory, guests are invited to join staff in dressing up for the occasion in their best unearthly attire and make sure you stop by the resident photo booth to capture your efforts; there will be a prize for the best dressed in both venues. As well as this, expect the usual Halloween festivities including spine-chilling music offset by the howl of the wolf pack.
Round up your very own pack, indulge in some freaky face-painting and grab a special Halloween themed Pina Colada and descend on Trader Vic’s Dubai this Halloween weekend.
Just make sure your hair is ‘perfect’!
