It’s a freakishly good weekend…

The spooky season is well underway and while there are plenty of family-friendly things to do in Dubai this Halloween, I personally, am more concerned with where to let my fangs down, look a hot mess (on purpose) and have a ghoulishly good time with my friends. Dubai sure knows how to throw Halloween parties.

Here are 6 of the best Halloween parties in Dubai this weekend.

No, we don’t mean the new song that’s been blowing up on TikTok but the incredible event hosted by Off The Record taking place on Friday, October 27 is guaranteed to be a banger because they have Mr Shef Codes on the decks. And you better be there dressed up as they’re giving away plenty of spooky surprises.
