Celebrate Halloween in the Marais
Things are getting seriously spooky on the Marais streets. The nights are getting longer, the days are getting darker, and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll find a cosy spot in which to celebrate the scariest night of the year. Stuck for inspiration? You’ve come to the right place. These Marais hangouts are guaranteed for a good scare, making your night truly unforgettable.
If there was ever going to be a moment in which to do something you’d never dream of, then surely Halloween is it. And if you’re on the hunt for the cream of the unusual crop, look no further than restaurant Dans Le Noir. Taking after its name, the eating spot proposes a gourmet feast in the dark, leaving you with nothing but your sense of taste and smell to guess what’s in front of you. Scary? Perhaps. Enticing? Absolutely!

Dia de los Muertos, day of the dead.
Celebratory and undeniably upbeat, the Mexican Halloween celebrates both the living and the dead. Want a look in? Prepare to surround yourself with decorated skulls, candles, and plenty of flowers! Lajoiedesfleurs.fr certainly got the memo having prepared their very own event, #fleursdelosmeurtos, in hôtel particulier La Cours du Marais. Expect a flower bar, flower crowns, makeup workshops, candle-making classes and an on-site photo booth. Not to be missed!

Varnishes to share
There’s nothing quite like a manicure to finish off your look, and when it comes to Halloween, it’s no different. Whether you’re opting for witchy black, or something a little more sparkly, the finished result is entirely up to you! Better yet, there will be no trouble removing your nail art when the holiday has been and gone, making it the perfect makeup option for your little devils, too.

There’s no point in denying it; your outfit is everything when it comes to Halloween. From witches to zombies, ghosts to skeletons, there’s a whole world of scare out there to be explored! Going all out? Check out A La Poupée Merveilleuse, a costume shop that’s got everything your heart desires.
