October in Miami means you put off thinking about Halloween for as long as possible because hey, what if it rains that day? But lo and behold, the South Florida weather for Halloween 2017 is turning out to be picture-perfect, so now you’re scrambling to DIY your costume – ripping sleeves off and cutting skirts shorter, of course – and line up your skin-flaunting party plans.
As the locals say, “Tranquilo, Tranquilo!” No need to stress – there are plenty of great Halloween events with tickets still available. Here are our recommended Miami monsters balls, with links to presale tickets and tables purchase:

Venue: Do Not Sit On The Furniture (423 16th Street, Miami, FL 33139)
One of South Beach’s most well-known and longest-running hip-hop nightclubs gets in on the Halloween festivities, and the scene figures to be as grimy as a graveyard and as lit as a jack-o-lantern on Grandma’s porch.

Time: 11:00 PM – 4:00 AM
Venue: Cameo (1445 Washington Ave, Miami, FL 33139)

If you’re superhuman enough to rise from the dead after a late-night-to-early-morning South Beach Saturday partying sesh, then the Delano on Sunday is the place to rest your beat-up corpse. As with all SBE-hosted events, the party will start out chill but get turnt quickly, and the sun-kissed bikini-clad talent will be in full effect… so try to sober up a bit and not look too much like The Walking Dead (unless that’s your costume, of course).
Time: 2:00 PM – 11:00PM
Venue: Delano Beach Club (1685 Collins Ave, Miami, FL 33139)
Hyde Beach’s new monthly nighttime pool party is getting in the Halloween mood. With help from the renowned party-starting DJ Chuckie – fresh off his summer residency at Marquee in Las Vegas – the Halloween Night Swim will have a haunted shipwreck theme, featuring fire-breathers, live theatrics, champagne showers… and pirates, plenty of pirates. Spooky meets sexy at this quintessential South Beach pool party spot, and there will be plenty of booty to plunder. ARRGGHHH, matey!
Time: 5:00 PM – 2:00 AM
Venue: Hyde Beach (1701 Collins Ave, Miami, FL 33139)
