New York City’s most anticipated Halloween party Voodoo 849 was a smash hit last night. With thrills and incredible vibes the bash at SECOND located at Kimpton Hotel Eventi made the holiday unforgettable.

The main ballroom, inspired by St. Louis Cathedral, and the main bar as St. Louis One, NoLa’s infamous cemetery where Marie’s grave lies to this day, was decked out with neon skeletons, haunting gravestones and more. Attendees included: Luann de Lesseps, Leah McSweeney, Dorinda Medley, Ramona Singer, Jill Zarin, RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Shangela and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, as well as Amanda Lepore.
