Get ready for THE wedding of the year as the club hosts Hallowedding (no prizes for guessing what kind of costumes we’ll see here).

Halloween Horror Nights
Horror has found a new home and its Universal Studios Singapore.

Once inside, you will be cast for their final cut. There's even a special 'scare menu' for the occasion.
St James Power Station gets its freak on this October 29 as all its outlets turn into a massive house of horrors. Think zombies of Resident Evil at Powerhouse, horr-medic spirits of Where Got Ghost in Super Dragonfly, vampires of Dusk to Dawn at The Boiler Room, freaks of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Movida, and the death eaters of Harry Potter at Bellini Room, all rocking to the party beat. If you’re headed to Shanghai Dolly, our advice is to leave any Grudges at the door and don’t be spooked if you see a Ring because we’re drawing inspiration from the best of horror flicks from the Land of the Rising Sun. Firefly joins the haunting with tales from a Chinese Ghost Story. Dress to impress and stand a chance to win tickets to Seoul, Korea or Bangkok.
