When it comes to celebrating the spookiest season of the year, no other team in Hawaii does Halloween quite like Noa Laporga and Angelina Khan. As the creators of the scariest haunted house on Oahu, Haunted Plantation, they came together with Riki Kobayashi and Masaki Sasada and opened up the first ever Halloween pop-up bar in Hawaii.
GHOST BAR HONOLULU
We headed over to Ghost Bar Honolulu for their Grand Opening at Ala Moana. From now (Oct 1) until October 31st, the Halloween-themed pop-up bar will be open daily from 2pm-midnight. It is located on the 2nd floor, Ewa Wing next to Jamba Juice and Zara. You’ll be able to spot the bright lights of Ghost Bar from the parking lot!
With spooky decorations all around the bar, you’ll feel the Halloween spirit rush in as soon as you enter. There’s even a clown doing magic card tricks – such a fun and interactive experience!
The fun begins when you order your Halloween-inspired cocktails! From drinks like the Faceless Lady, Killer Clown, Witches’ Brew, Grim Reaper, Vampire Bite, to the Haunted Plantation, and many more. Each drink is special with its own Halloween twist – all are definitely insta-worthy and tasteful! They even have beers on tap (Stella Artois was our pick), wines, non-alcoholic beverage, and treats! Also, you don’t have to say Trick-or-Treat because there is already a bowl of candy at each table! The tables are treat ready.
My drink of choice was the Killer Clown ($10) with horchata rum cream liqueur, coconut rum, milk, whipped cream, and ube powder. It tasted just like a milkshake and was delicious! Also, it comes with a clown nose which you’re able to keep, put on, and participate in the Halloween theme if you came unprepared.
Reid had the Haunted Plantation ($8) with vodka, sweet tea, and pineapple juice which comes with a glow stick. We both really enjoyed this drink – fruity and very refreshing! It hits like a champ – not too strong but gave Reid a nice buzz.
This was our first time going to a Halloween-themed bar and it was definitely a unique experience. We had a great time seeing all of the decorations and tasting the Halloween-inspired cocktails. If you’re looking for something fun to do with friends for the month of October, check out the Ghost Bar Honolulu!
