Gothic Goes Glamourous at the Booking Office Restaurant This Halloween

The St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel Features Specialty Cocktails, a Celebrity DJ and More at Its "Gothic Gathering"

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - Some partnerships are made to last. Like chocolate and peanut butter, the sophisticated Booking Office at St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel is an ideal partner for the stylish Veuve Clicquot champagne house. So when these two brands teamed up to host a series of vibrantly chic events, it was only natural that they find another great match for the Booking Office's gothic-inspired architecture. The solution? A deliciously macabre Halloween party known as the Gothic Gathering.

Starting at 8 p.m., guests will discover the darker side of this London cocktail bar when the Gothic Gathering gets underway. DJ Philly, the musical mastermind behind events for P. Diddy, Prince, Johnny Depp and London's top clubs, will be spinning tracks until the wee hours of the morning. Against this soundtrack, celebrants can tuck in to bar snacks like black pudding, pumpkin croquettes with roast-apple dip and butternut-squash nachos with blue cheese-and-spiced-tomato salsa.

But the real scene-stealer at this King's Cross bar and lounge has always been the cocktails, and Halloween is no exception. Specialty drinks assume a ghoulish bent with names like "Evil Pumpkin" and "The Walking Dead," and guests will also receive Veuve Clicquot trick-or-treat envelopes. (Beware: They're not all treats.) After sampling the mixologist's magic, aspiring ghouls will be ready to try a gothic makeover, courtesy of an expert makeup artist who will be on property for the evening.

Because this 5-star London hotel has a taste for the theatrical -- just witness the iconic Grand Staircase -- guests who arrive outfitted in their finest gothic ensemble will automatically earn access to the exclusive R.I.P. area at the bar. In addition to the service of their own dedicated waiter, these partygoers are each entitled to one complimentary "Toxic Shot" as well as a professional photograph on the Grand Staircase.

Few venues can match the Booking Office when it comes to the sort of details that beget a great Halloween party. This luxury London hotel, after all, is a masterpiece of neo-Gothic architecture with vaulted ceilings, cathedral-style windows and even gargoyles chiseled into the original stonework. With such dramatic flair and exquisite enticements, the Gothic Gathering may just inspire guests to come back and haunt The Booking Office another day.
