Trailing the success of its Full Moon debut, the second instalment of the Shanghai Underground series gets a sinister makeover with its Halloween edition.

Primarily centred around dining in the earlier hours from 5pm – 10pm and a special supper menu from 10pm onwards, diners can dine alongside the solemn company of a coffin centrepiece complete with funeral fittings for photo opportunities. Also available will be limited edition Halloween tipples like the Black Heart / 黑心 flaunting a Peddlers gin, Amaro Montenegro and grapefruit base topped off with a white chrysanthemum flower obeying true traditions as well as shots of Blood for Blood 血债血偿 – that combine Peddlers salted plum gin with coffee liqueur.
In a bid to incentivise attendees to come in their best funeral garb, there will also be a Best Dressed competition for a shot at scoring the grand prize of a 2D1N stay at the panoramic Duxton Room at the recently opened Mondrian Singapore Duxton with runner-up prizes that include bottles of Peddlers Gin as well as $100 worth of drink-and-dine vouchers for return visits.
