Haunted Halloween: Tarantula Cocktails at The Langham London

Tarantula cocktail at The Langham

The mixologists at The Langham’s Artesian bar have racked up all kinds of awards, so we trust you’re in good hands when you order up the “Tarantula and Scorpion Cocktail” this Halloween. It’s made with Courvoisier punch infused with oven baked tarantula and scorpion which is said to “add notes of wood and tobacco to the cocktail.” The Langham is indeed a great place to celebrate Halloween; the historic hotel’s had all kinds of ghost sightings, mostly dating from when the BBC was located in the building. (Room 333 is the one to book if you’re into hauntings.)

Reserve the “Halloween Package” and you’ll be in for all kinds of tricks and treats. This annual October package is priced at £333 (the same number as The Langham's scariest room) and includes overnight accommodation for two persons, a Tarantula Cocktail for two in Artesian, a Jack The Ripper Walking Tour and a complimentary history book (complete with ghost stories) of The Langham, London from The Langham Book Butler. Valid between October 1- October 31, 2011.
