Boston's Best: Where to Celebrate Halloween This Weekend

If you're taking on the dark-side and venturing out this weekend, we've got some recommendations for you. Boston is always hopping for Halloween. Ghost, goblins, vampires and villains, oh my! These bars, clubs, boats and crawls are the best of the best to celebrate a spooktacular Halloween! Here's where to go.

Bars & Clubs

Brass Union - Heroes and Villains Party

A typical theme, yes, but did we mention no cover? Yes, you heard that right, no cover! Brass Union is bringing in DJ ABD, there are cash prizes for three different “best costume awards,” and there’s lots of candy. Get the Batmobile and head over to Union Square for this bumpin' party!

District Hall - Halloween Ball at the Hall by RadioBDC

This free event will be at District Hall taking over two rooms, one with live music from Never in Vegas and the other with a DJ, and a $500 cash prize for best costume. It's a pretty classy joint, so make sure you get all dolled up!


The Spirit of Boston - Titanic Masquerade

We hope this ship doesn't sink! Kidding, of course. This cruise is better than most in that it starts and ends at appropriate times: it leaves the dock at 10 p.m. and gets back at 1 a.m. You’re required to wear a costume on board–as in they won’t let you on without one–and they “strongly encourage” a mask. General Admission is $65 until the 31st or until they sell out. Never let go Jack!

The Provincetown II - Haunted Ghost Ship

The Provincetown II has hired a live DJ and will have a cash bar for Halloween. Costumes aren’t required. This particular cruise embarks at 7:30 and gets back at 10:30, well before the night is over. Which could work to your advantage if you want to do a booze cruise to pre-game and then hit up bars and clubs after you’ve arrived back in the harbor to wrap up the night. Tickets are $30 until Halloween or until they sell out. Don't miss this monster bash!

Pub Crawl

Friends of the Fort Point Channel - Halloween on the Harbor


Halloween on the Harbor is definitely an upscale crawl. It’s made up of mostly hotels and fancy bars, which means more expensive drinks (which are being offered at reduced prices), but fewer college students, if that’s a thing that bothers you. Other benefits include discounted tickets to a 10:30 show at Laugh Boston (the crawl only lasts from 7-10), access to promotionally-priced foods, and prizes for best costume. You also get to take a duck boat from venue to venue, which is a clever alternative to walking or ubering. Tickets are $5 and all proceeds go to Friends of the Fort Point Channel. Try this crawl out!
