What are your plans for Halloween this year? If you’re looking for somewhere to celebrate, Iron City has you covered with the annual A Nightmare on 22nd Street Halloween celebration. Here’s a few events you don’t want to miss!

Specialty Cocktails + Adult Trick-or-Treat

Each year, Iron City makes a special cocktail for A Nightmare on 22nd Street. Last year’s was the Black Cat Cocktail—loaded with raspberry liqueur, blue curaçao, lemonade and Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka, the drink was a hit!

This year’s recipe is a bit of a secret, but we do know that Cathead Vodka will be making a return. We can’t wait to try it!

And have you heard of adult trick-or-treating? At the event, take a trip to the upstairs mezzanine, where guests (21+) can try several different specialty shots using tokens purchased at the bar.

Costume Contest + Photo Booth

One of my favorite parts about A Nightmare on 22nd Street is the annual costume contest. Grab your best friends and put your costume-making skills to the test. The winner gets a bundle of Iron City merch!

And while you’re there, step inside the photo booth to immortalize your costume get-up. A trip to the photo booth is just $5, and all proceeds go towards the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.

Live Music from DJ Mark AD

It’s safe to say that Iron City knows a thing or two about music—just take a look at some of the artists that have graced Iron City’s stage throughout the years. Taking the lead on live music at A Nightmare on 22nd Street is local artist DJ Mark A.D.

Personally, I hope he plays the classics—Monster Mash, Thriller and Werewolves of London.
