Vegan alert! Floozie Cookies is stirring up a plant-based storm this Halloween with their limited-edition Frankenshake. This vibrant and eerie concoction pairs pistachio vegan affogato with a splash of purple whipped ‘cream’ topping. A treat that’s as Instagrammable as it is scrumptious.

Aloha, witches and warlocks! Why not celebrate Halloween Hawaiian-style? El Ta’Koy, situated in Covent Garden, is dishing out a thrilling “Trick or Treat” shot special for the whole month. When you order, you might get a “Trick” shot—a daringly tangy potion—or a “Treat” shot, sweet as a witch’s spell. Each shot is crafted to infuse a bit of Halloween magic into your evening. Mystery, suspense, and a dash of the tropics make these shots an absolute must-try.

Served in a mini pumpkin, this concoction perfectly complements Zuaya’s Latin-American inspired menu, featuring stand-out dishes like Argentinian Sirloin with Chimichurri and Pork Belly Patacones with Coriander Aioli.
Dining at Como Garden is always a treat, but come Halloween, it becomes a trick-or-treating ground for adults. The romantic Italian restaurant will morph into a haunted house, complete with ghouls serving your favourite Italian dishes. To cap it off, they’re also giving their regular cheesecake a Halloween makeover—say hello to pumpkin-flavoured cheesecake!
