halloween events

All Hallows’ Eve is fast approaching, and from horror film screenings and fancy-dress balls to glamorously themed dinner parties, we’ve found the most stylish ways to celebrate

Words Charlotte Emerson & Andrea Cheong

Kaspar’s At The Savoy

Kaspars Seafood Bar and GrillThe Savoy hosts a luxurious dinner party inspired by the ominous passing of a South African diamond magnate following a dinner at The Savoy in 1898. As the story goes, when 13 guests dine together, the first to rise will be cursed to death, and as you may have guessed, he was the first to leave the the table. In keeping with this spooky tale, 13 guests will indulge in a Halloween themed menu. Look forward to the likes of black ‘devilled’ risotto and bloody beef and pumpkin pie. The meal is complemented with glasses of champagne; it is The Savoy after all.

29th – 31st October
£1,313.13 for a group of 13, call Kaspar’s to book
