It’s the season of all things spooky and things are looking especially wicked in Toronto this October. Bars, restaurants, and bakeshops all over town are getting into the Halloween spirit with sinister creations worthy of their own horror movie. When you’re not hopping from haunted farms to terrifying mazes, you’ll want to sink your teeth into these treats while you still can.
Here are some of the best Halloween-themed food and drinks you can find in Toronto this month.
On select dates throughout October, a Halloween-themed pop-up bar called Black Lagoon will serve up creepy cocktails 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. You’ll need to be dressed up in costume to get in for free and showing up in your regular clothes will cost you $20 at the door. The waitlist for the pop-up opens on October 14th!
