Who says Halloween parties should only happen on Halloween? One beloved DTLA cocktail lounge has transformed into an all spooky, all the time Halloween experience that lasts all month long.
Slink into Ghostbound—the bar you know as Westbound during non-October months of the year—and take in the spooky decorations (and a few “haunted” surprises) that have gone up all over the classy vintage-style lounge. A menu of limited-edition Halloween cocktails includes the Ichabod Plane (mezcal, cappelletti, Kina L’avion d’Or, lemon, and simple syrup), and a Double Bubble Boilermaker Trouble (pumpkin beer with a shot of applejack), among other additions.
Every Wednesday in October is an old-fashioned “Harvest Night” celebration on the bar’s back patio, complete with bobbing for apples, a pumpkin bocce ball competition, and pumpkin decorating. Scary movies will be shown on select nights. From 11 p.m. to close on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday nights, “special potions” will be available for $10 during the “Witching Hour.”
Westbound is no stranger to a festive holiday display. It’s the same bar that goes all-out for Christmas, a flip that will take place shortly after Halloween decorations come down.
Westbound is located at 300 South Santa Fe Avenue in the Arts District and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. and Sundays from 5 p.m. to midnight.
