Until the end of spooky season, a Halloween-themed pop-up bar called Black Lagoon is serving up creepy cocktails and live entertainment in a spooky atmosphere in the city. Some of the featured drinks include The Bloodlust, The Darkness, and a unique concoction served in a skull.

Beware of monsters and ghouls lurking around every corner at this 15,000 sq ft destination. Once you’re ready to have a little fun, you can head over to the fully licensed Vampire Lounge as a reward for all the terror you endured.

It’s the last weekend you’ll be able to explore a transformed Casa Loma as a terrifying immersive experience. Wander through a 2 km trail through the castle’s gardens, tunnels and some of the “darkest spaces never open to the public,” where theatrical experiences and elaborate sets will haunt you at every turn. The “crescendo” of the experience will bring the walls of the castle to life through incredible 3D projections.

When: Until October 31st

Have a happy and safe Halloween, Toronto!
