Because Halloween is on Thursday next week, a few restaurants and bars in town are celebrating this weekend with live music and parties.

Next Thursday, though … Halloween night … the only party noted in town is at The Royal Hawaiian Fire Grill with its “Voodoo & Lapus Halloween Dance Party.”

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with uber-popular regional band Skylla hosting L.A. celebrity musician Francois Dean and global celebrity L.A. Guns original front singer Paul Black. The Royal Hawaiian’s iconic Lapu Lapu cocktail (voodoo of its own) will be available all evening long at $10, served along with its many popular tiki cocktail peers, craft brews and “other” cocktails that range beyond the tiki universe.

While the restaurant’s popular Happy Hour will begin as usual at 5:00 p.m., doors for the party open after 7:30 p.m. with early bird covers at just $5. This is a 21+ party.

Best Costume Awarded

Drop in for a simple toast or stay for an evening’s celebration on Oct. 31st. The “Most Innovative Costume” will be awarded $75 gift certificates from the restaurant.

And Starting This Weekend: Pub Crawls

In addition to the Voodoo & Lapus party, this Thursday, Oct 24th through Sunday, Oct. 27th finds the RoHi adhering to another decades-honored tradition: Laguna Beach Halloween Pub Crawls always begin their “crawl” at the Royal Hawaiian. 

Anyone (and everyone in their party) who shows up in costume during these four days receives any of RoHi’s happy hour-priced tiki cocktail drinks, including the infamous Lapu Lapu at just $12 (regularly priced at $16), as well as the best-selling Mai Tai and Blue Hawaiian drinks at $10 (regularly priced at $14).
