A couple years ago, Drunken Devil made its entrance into the haunt world with “Sinner’s Soiree,” which was part walk-through haunted house and part nightclub/bar scene. It was a creative idea, but the first-year reviews were mixed at best, and our experience was disappointing. However, Drunken Devil has persevered and found a new niche in creating horror-themed parties and events that revolve around alcohol. (Their name is Drunken Devil, after all.) Their parties have garnered good reviews on sites like HorrorBuzz.
Their newest incarnation looks like an intriguing Tiki-infused night of fun and terror, which they’re calling “Curse of the Jungle Drums”:
THE DRUMS WILL DRIVE YOU MAD!
Drunken Devil presents an evening of exotica, dance, theatre, and horror in a brand new, one-night-only immersive soireé: Curse of the Jungle Drums.
Find yourself transported to Pele’s Hideaway, a lavish tiki bar in Hollywood, circa 1954. Back from an exotic expedition, a famous explorer has brought a mysterious idol to the bar’s owner as a gift; the idol, however, is cursed, and causes the club-goers to go mad, killing each other. You will arrive moments after the massacre, and, if you choose to, will be able to interact with some of the newly undead patrons, piecing together a horror-fueled narrative throughout the evening.
Partake in an open bar, presented by Lemon Hart & Son Rum, featuring a host of tiki cocktails as well as other spirits, beer, and wine; experience mystifying tarot readings and magic; snap a photo in an interactive photo booth; enjoy live music and steamy, exotica-inspired burlesque acts, and, as per Drunken Devil tradition, dance under the flicker of a disco ball to end the night.
Tickets are $75 and “will increase” as it gets closer to the event. Check out Drunken Devil’s website for more information as it becomes available.
