Halloween bar crawl in Minneapolis this October

The Pub Crawl Just got Scarier

As Halloween descends upon us, the Halloween Bar Crawl in Minneapolis descends upon The Pourhouse Downtown. The Halloween Bar crawl is taking over the country on October 26th, and when it hits in Minneapolis, it kicking off The Pourhouse. Party people from coast to coast will be exploring their cities from 4pm-10pm in their most creative costumes, in hopes of winning the $1000 costume contest grand prize. 

The Halloween Bar Crawl at the Pourhouse

Crawl With Us and the scariest club crawlers in Minnesota will be dragging feet around the entertainment district of downtown Minneapolis. Top-notch entertainment and people watching collide around drink specials at great bars near the Pourhouse – it’s going to be a great time! Minneapolis is a long-time home to zombie pub crawls, but the Halloween Bar Crawl opens the floodgates for us to devise whatever twisted creations our minds can muster.

The Pourhouse is the perfect place for your costumes off. We will be mixing it up with specials on beer, cocktails, and dark and spooky drinks, so whatever your poison, we’ve got you covered. DJ Afterparty will bring the Halloween party back to the Hideout at Pourhouse at 10 pm, so your evening can keep rolling if you’re a night owl. 

Why Pub Crawls?

You went trick-or-treating when you were a kid, why not pub crawl as an adult? Pub crawls bring a sense of purpose to your night out. A plan. They provide a map of great local places downtown so you can hang at some of your favorite spots and grab drink specials at some new gems. They are a great way to get a bunch of friends together to bust out some fun pub crawl themes. Also, the bar crawl brings lots of interesting people out of the woodwork, so you get to meet some new friends along the way. In short, they are quickly becoming one of our favorite Halloween activities for adults.

Best Costumes for Halloween Bar Crawls

Bar Crawl Halloween costumes in Minneapolis require a little more attention to detail than many cities. This particular day will hopefully be sunny and beautiful, but some Halloweens have blizzards. Big, big blizzards. (Just ask someone who’s lived in Minnesota awhile.) It’s nice to block the wind and cold, but something that’s too hot can leave you sweating all night. If you opt for a revealing costume, you may have to hurry between parties. Don’t forget what a bar crawl is. You will be walking from bar to bar, but most of the night will be spent inside. 

Your costume should be an equal mix of creativity and common sense to the fact that you will be walking outside in Minneapolis in late October. If you plan on dancing in the bars, you may want something that breathes and lets you move freely. If you plan to hit all the bars, you may want to wear comfortable shoes for walking. Whatever you’re looking for, there are all kinds of easy DIY costume ideas online, so there’s no excuse for yours not to rock.

Halloween bar crawl awaits…

Most of all, be unique. We’ve all seen great costumes, but a super creative Halloween costume blows them all away. There is a $1000 grand prize for best costume, so you may want to throw caution to the wind if it nets you a grand! Make sure to have your photo taken with the official Crawl With Us photographer at the check-in location during the check-in time.

Photos will be posted to the Halloween Bar Crawl Minneapolis Facebook page no later than October 29th. Be sure to tag yourself and as many friends as you can, because the photo with the most likes in the Minneapolis page will be added to the Crawl With Us Facebook page on November 4th for the national contest. Just add the tags again, and if your photo gets the most likes, you get a grand!

Drink Responsibly

We want everyone to have a fun and safe Halloween Bar Crawl, so please drink responsibly, and don’t drink and drive. The light rail runs directly in front of the Pourhouse, so that’s a great option. Whether you use public transit, a rideshare service, a designated driver, or you plan on crawling home, just get there safely.
