Only the most courageous Angelenos are invited… 👻
For the first time ever, Angelenos on the hunt for the next eerie experience can head over to a macabre cocktail soirée hosted inside of an old L.A. mansion. The story and events of this haunted soirée are inspired by the final days of the great Spanish artist, Goya. His Black Painting fresco series was discovered inside his home after his descent into madness and eventual death, and maybe – just maybe – this night will give you the chance to see his paintings come to life.
With all that’s going on this month, making plans can seem overwhelming. Whatever you do, don’t set yourself up for a serious case of F.O.M.O – here are 5 reasons why House of Spirits is the go-to event this Halloween… if you’re brave enough.
1. It’s such a unique event…
How many opportunities do you have to attend a macabre soirée? This spine-chilling cocktail party is free-roaming and immersive, leaving it up to you to unfold some of the most otherworldly discoveries that the sinister old mansion holds. And the best part? When you need a break from the madness, just stop by one of the many stations to sneak in a few sips before heading back into the many rooms.
2. A variety of Don Julio crafted cocktails are yours for the choosing…
Speaking of festive concoctions, Don Julio has a few tricks and treats up their sleeve. At each of the six drink stations placed throughout the rooms of the house, expect to see a specially – curated signature cocktail prepared by Don Julio. From beverages like the Black Magic Margarita and Goya’s Ghost, don’t be surprised if you end up wanting to recreate these mystical cocktails at home!
3. The soiree takes place inside of L.A’s historic Beckett Mansion…
The Los Angeles landmark was built sometime between 1905 and 1910 for Dr. Wesley Beckett, a chairman of the trustees of the Los Angeles County Medical Association and board of trustees at USC. The monstrous six-bedroom, four-bath home has served as a standing set for films and horror set in the past – but could it be that the open gateways to bizarre and frightening realities have chased visitors away?
4. Guest can engage in an assortment of spine-chilling activities…
Don’t let your fear overcome you. Calm your nerves by grabbing a bite to eat, stop to listen to some tunes courtesy of the live band, and while you’re at it – head over for a tarot card reading! You never know when it may be your last night to enjoy the things you love, so, enjoy them while you can.
You create your own story for the night…
Dress up, follow characters to immerse yourself deeper into their storylines, or continue to the next room to experience something new. At The House of Spirits, you’re the one in control (or at least that’s what they want you to think.) This Halloween may be the most peculiar yet, but don’t let that stop you from creating your own hair-raising adventure. Good luck!
