17 Best Halloween Parties in Metro Phoenix

If you've spent weeks prepping the world's greatest Halloween costume and need somewhere to show it off, you're in luck. The bars and clubs of Metro Phoenix are planning to celebrate All Hallows in style and not just on Friday, October 31. Some places will be having shindigs, masquerades, and other Halloween-themed hootenannies throughout the entire weekend.

We've assembled a list of some of the biggest and brightest parties that will be taking place, including a few with blockbuster costume contests offering cash prizes of thousands of dollars or more to the winners. Needless to say, if your outfit is good enough to win, it will not only cover the cost of your costume, but also your enormous bar tab.
