Spirit Lounge: Macabre Manor materializes in Montclair

Looking for a way to imbibe Halloween spirits this Fall? Look no further than The Spirit Lounge: Macabre Manor at The Set in Montclair. The Set is a speakeasy, hidden within That 80s Bar, which offers a 100-minute immersive experience themed to the season. At other times of the year, patrons may find themselves aboard a submarine or a starship; this autumn, during the months from September to November, The Set is transformed into a spooky speakeasy, complete with photo ops, interactive surprises, a themed drink menu, and roaming characters visiting your table or performing on stage.

If the concept sounds familiar, the reason is that  The Spirit Lounge debuted at a Brea location in 2019, produced by the Sinister Pointe Productions. After going on hiatus during the 2020 pandemic lockdown, the event has been resurrected in its new location, with an expanded title, promising an “eerie fusion of The Munsters and The Addams Family.”

The Spirit Lounge: Macabre Manor runs until November 11, with sessions beginning at 8pm and 10pm on Thursdays and with an additional midnight season on Fridays and Saturdays. Advance tickets are required. Prices are $10 on Thursdays, $20 on Fridays and Saturdays. There is a two-drink minimum. Admission is restricted to ages 21 and up. The address is 10555 Mills Avenue, Montclair CA 91763. Get more information at ExperienceTheSet.com.
