Oct 30: Shanghai's Biggest Halloween Party


Spooky music. Spine-chilling shows. Creepy drinks. And awesome prizes on offer for the best dressed. It’s that time of year for ghoulish get-ups, and we couldn’t be more excited. Once again, That’s Shanghai is hosting a hell of a bash as we join forces with Cages on Saturday, October 30. Pre-order tickets are just RMB100, which includes entry to all of the above freaky fun, and THREE drinks tickets. 

Last year, people rocked up in full costume, dancing on tables well into the wee hours of the morning to old school hip hop and classic tunes from throughout the decades, from the 80s all the way to 2020. Tickets will be RMB200 at the door, so buy now to avoid disappointment.
