The Nomad Hotel’s annual Halloween masquerade ball is one of the hottest tickets in New York City — and this year’s party was no exception.
At $ 300 a person, the black-tie party let masked guests have free rein of the trendy hotel’s ground floor, while second-floor guest rooms were reserved for Halloween-themed adventures.
Keep scrolling to see highlights from this year’s party, which was packed with stylish people and sold out several weeks in advance. Masks were required for entry.
Tired of tacky Halloween celebrations, restaurateur Will Guidara (left) and chef Daniel Humm (right) began hosting the masquerade ball four years ago.
Guidara and Humm take food seriously (the hotel’s restaurant, NoMad, has a Michelin star, and their other restaurant, Eleven Madison Park, has three), so delicious snacks could be enjoyed throughout the night.
Musicians graced the stage …
… and came out into the crowd to celebrate.
Guests took advantage of the dance floor.
And, of course, there was a plethora of great costumes.
David Bowie roamed the halls.
The Joker also made an appearance.
Some guests opted for simple, elegant black dresses to go with their masks.
You could pose for a photo in a bathtub …
… or pose with your crew at the photo booth.
Some rooms had scary clown nurses waiting for you.
Some masks were elaborate …
Cocktails were served in golden pineapples.
Guests sipped on them throughout the evening.
Here’s to next year’s ball!
