Wait, don’t skip out on the hour-long trip just yet, especially if you love Halloween! Delray’s Death or Glory bar has fully given into the spirit of the season and has slipped on something a little bit more spooky so that you can celebrate Halloween in all its glory with them. And yes, I know the trip up to Delray isn’t ideal, but you probably spend more time on the McArthur during rush hour anyway, so might as well give Death or Gory in Hellray a chance!
Each year, when September comes around Death or Glory (or should I say Death or Gory) switches the fish bowls for black cauldrons in order to celebrate the spookiest holidays of them all. And while some may say it’s too early to pull out the pumpkins and fake blood, we’re kind of all about this bar’s spooky new look and cocktail menu.
Known for putting up a good seasonal pop-up or two, the bar is looking absolutely spooktacular after decking its halls with witch hats, skeleton bar stools, and spiderwebs galore, which if you ask me fit in perfectly with its name.
To complement its spooky décor, Death and Gory has, of course, put together a brand new list of haunted cocktails, featuring whimsical concoctions such as the “Eye Roll” with vodka, lemon, lychee, and jalapeño, topped off with some rather gory looking eye candy or the “I put a spell on You!” made with mezcal, applejack, benedictine, chartreuse and cherry vanilla bitters, served with a tiny little spell in a bottle on the side.
As if some bloody eyes topping your drink weren’t scary enough, it would also seem like the bar could be haunted. Bartenders and servers alike have reported several encounters with spectral beings inside the bar and will be happy to tell you their ghost stories as an added extra should you request it.
And for those of you who are also big Christmas fans, Death and Glory also hosts the popular Miracle Christmas pop-up bars. Known for its kitschy holiday décor and well-crafted cocktails, Miracle’s fun Christmas pop-ups tend to, well, pop up, pretty much everywhere in the US when Christmas comes around. So if after your fake blood bags and leaky cauldrons you’re ready to switch into something a bit more Christmasy then you cannot miss out on this over-the-top magical experience at Death and Glory.
For the time being though, make sure to check out Death and Gory at Hellray Beach before it goes away! Death and Glory is open from 4 p.m. until midnight, Sunday to Thursday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., Friday and Saturday, and offers Happy Hour specials every day from 4 to 6 so you can get double the blood bags and double the cauldrons.
