Perfect Way To Spend Halloween
As I mentioned on Twitter, last night (October 30th) I had the pleasure of joining some co-workers and a few of my close and personal friends at Dracula's Cabaret Restaurant for a night of pure indulgence.
First of all, upon entering the 'haunted house' us 'mere mortals' were shown to the Graveyard bar where we were invited for pre-dinner drinks and a look around at the horror shop. Inside they had a bust of Freddy Krueger complete with the actual mask and costume from A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 3. They had autographed photos of Vincent Price, Christina Ricci (from her Addams Family days) and even Tom Cruise as Lestat.
From there, we were escorted down into the Boiler Room where we boarded the ghost train which took us into the main dining hall. Once we were seated we selected our main meal (for the record, I had the Silence Of The Lambs which was so tender it simply melted in your mouth) and not too long after the entree appeared.
The food was exceptional, but the entertainment was sensational. The performance we saw was labelled 'Black Blood' which was a retro Goth comedy show, featuring vampyre themed variety acts that spring straight out of South London’s popular electro rock era of the 1980’s. The show oozes with gold spandex, black lace and wicked satire as it rips into modern culture with fangs bared and a healthy appetite for laughter
The two leading men, Vlad and Thorn, were absolutely brilliant and Thorn was a super hunk. Must admit, there were little puddles of drool on my table from staring at him all night.
For $93.00 we had first rate entertainment and a 3 course meal. Drinks were separate and our table ran up a bill of $347.50.
It was non-stop fun that is highly recommended. Got photos with the Drac-ettes, all the female wait staff and of course with Thorn and Vlad.
If you are ever on Australia's Gold Coast (or in Melbourne), spend a night at Dracula's. You won't regret it.
