2019 Las Vegas Halloween Shows

Fetish and Fantasy Halloween Ball

Back by popular demand at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Fetish and Fantasy is considered to be the party to end all parties. A jaw-dropping event, one of the most risqué and, it must be said, bizarre, Halloween parties with plenty of Go-Go Girls, fire breathers, laser lights and aerial silk dancers.

Admission requirements are strict – attendees must wear something fantasy-like, fetish-like or a Halloween costume.

10 pm to 3 am, age 21 or older only.

A Few Useful Tips

Just in case you were thinking about it, your costume must be a costume – nudity is not allowed in public.

You cannot wear a Halloween mask to any children’s event or to any casino

If your costume is the slightest bit questionable, just cover up until you get to your party

Be aware that face paint and masks are not permitted outside Las Vegas nightclubs, not are law enforcement or security uniforms or any toy or fake weapon. If you choose not to dress in a Halloween costume, you must comply with the dress code for your particular venue.
