Halloween at Sexy Fish

In London, you don’t go on a night out so much as partake of a new experience. Leave it to the gloriously named Sexy Fish in Mayfair to add a unique event to this year’s Halloween calendar.

On Tuesday 31st October this year, Sexy Fish, one of London’s most talked about restaurants, will celebrate Halloween in the scariest and most wicked of ways. With fire breathers, snake dancers and other incredible performances, as well as the refined food for which the restaurant is known, this year’s “Scary Fish” celebration is set to be one hell of a Berkeley Square nightmare. Whether sitting down to the lavish eleven-course set menu or taking a front row seat at the bar, diners will be treated to the sexiest and spookiest soirée in town.

Guests will leave familiar Mayfair behind as they enter the aquatic underworld of Scary Fish, filled with seductive she-devils and dangerous demons glowing under spooky neon lights. The moment guests step through the door, Hollywood Halloween sirens will usher them into a transformed space, full of mystical creatures and deadly decorations. Diners will take their seats in the unrecognisable restaurant, cocktail in hand, as sexy snake charmers perform captivating tricks, while tribal sword and belly dancers take to the floor. Spine-tingling bone breaker skeleton dancers will have the room gasping in awe, as ferocious fire breathing temptresses sashay en pointe around the room, alongside burlesque dancers, and the Haunted Hollywood singers. Later, legendary DJ Jodie Harsh will raise hell and keep the party going into the dead of night.

Before guests hit the dance floor, those with a monster appetite will be challenged to wolf down eleven dangerously delicious courses, created by Head Chef Bjoern Weissgerber.  Featuring Japanese-inspired dishes with a unique Sexy ‘Scary’ Fish twist. Dishes will include:

  • Wagyu fat ‘Paranormal’ popcorn
  • Spicy yellowtail sashimi paired with pickled garlic and coriander
  • Crispy octopus served with red blood orange and sweet shishito pepper
  • An exquisite grilled foie gras with kimchi and edamame
  • The Deluxe Sushi Platter includes a refreshing deluxe selection of fresh sashimi, toro (tuna) taki maki with caviar and halibut nigiri
  • Deliciously smokey miso marinated smoked salmon
  • Seasonal crisp pumpkin tempura and intense ‘black death’ truffle
  • Open fire grilled baby chicken
  • Luxurious and spicy lobster soup
  • ‘The Candyman’ will make an appearance in the form of a black sesame parfait, tonka bean cream and mandarin sorbet

Guests can pick their poison from a list of special cocktails created by Bar Manager Matteo Cazzaniga with Stolichnaya Elit Vodka. The Scary Fish drinks take inspiration from the spooky festivities and have suitably creepy names to match. The deadly ‘Zombie Bride’ combines Stolichnaya Elit vodka, Cointreau, grapefruit, and apple cider with Yuzu absinthe and is topped with tonic, while ‘Jack O’Lantern’ mixes pumpkin infused Stolichnaya Elit with sea water sake and chilli bitters to create a more savoury serve. ‘Nightmare on Berkeley Square’ is a thrilling twist on the classic Moscow Mule, combining Stolichnaya Elit with lemon, green Chartreuse and ginger ale, which sits alongside ‘The Undertaker’, a creation made with vodka, lemon, blackberry, Grand Marinier and topped with prosecco.

General party tickets are £165 and include the devilish dinner and a Stolichnaya Elit cocktail on arrival, crazy circus acts and Jodie Harsh’s DJ set, from 7.30pm – 1am. Those who prefer to watch the action from front row seats at the Sexy Fish bar will be able to purchase tickets for £45, which includes a Stolichnaya Elit cocktail on arrival, Scary Fish canapés, and entertainment from 7.30pm – 1am.
