Frightful Modern Halloween Club Parties in Los Angeles

Celebrate Halloween with Los Angeles Halloween Club Parties – LA goes crazy at Halloween with the largest, the most outlandish, the spookiest parties you can imagine.  They create haunting venues and wild acts all set to music where you can dance the night away.  Most clubs listed here are on the west side of LA.  For your Halloween dancing pleasure, da Cat has selected a wide range of club styles. Please check sites for costume and style info. If you get into something too wild, don’t say we didn’t warn you. At the bottom of this page are more places to find out about clubs.

Find an eclectic mix of non-club quieter parties <here>

** Warning, clubs on this page are adult clubs. Many are over 21 and therefore links on this page are meant for 21 and over. Proceed at your own risk.

Most of the Halloween dance club info doesn’t come out until the last minute. Last year’s info is listed to give you an idea of this year. Check update flags and their web sites for the latest.

Check with your regular club to see what they have planned. Many have costume contests that never make the newspaper. On the other hand, if you don’t normally hit the modern club scene, Halloween is a fun night to to see LA in all it’s flavors.


Everyone bring your ID. Costumes make it hard to tell your age. If you can’t prove 21+ you won’t be able to drink anywhere, and won’t be able to get into a lot of the clubs, period. Please check the costume requirements for each event. Some it’s required, some it’s forbidden, so plan your evenings to match dress styles.
