It’s in true Archer Street style that the Soho bar presents Michael Jackson’s Thriller for this year’s Halloween. Famed for their multi talented staff who both sing AND waiter, Archer Street will put on a musical showdown of a celebration inspired by the infamous 1980s music video.
The sophisticated cocktail bar will be transformed in a glowing graveyard with mini tombstones and scary skeletons lurking in the corners, and for a ghoulish treat, guests will also get to order a special Thriller cocktail. The staff will be dressed in all black with hats and gloves, and MJ himself will even make an appearance with a spooktacular live performance on the night.
Archer Street in Soho is one of the more sophisticated pockets of Soho, being a spacious and elegant bar set over two floors with a 330-person capacity. The upstairs bar features a sophisticated, sultry atmosphere with large French windows, distressed wood panelling and plush velvet stools, while the downstairs bar changes every six months with the recent launch of FESTIVAL – a tribute to great music, free-spirits and midnight dancing and the only place to plan a great escape this season.
