Halloween is always a spooky time of year and for one Wirral pub it was an all-nighter event full of music, alcohol and costumes at the weekend.

Molly’s Chambers bar and kitchen in Birkenhead launched its first Halloween-themed party called ‘A Nightmare on Bridge Street’ after re-opening in the summer.

The venue, which was previously known as The Hotel California, and was renowned for its similar parties.

The event, which was published through their Facebook page, had a status reading: “Remember the Cali Halloween all-nighters? Best night out of the year and we’re taking it to Molly’s with extra knobs on. Don’t miss this night.”

The manager, Kate Sutton, 30, from Wirral told JMU Journalism: “The evening at Molly’s was a massive success and has filled us full of confidence for the future.”

There were so many people, including regulars, all showing their Halloween spirit, dressed up head to toe. Kate added: “Everyone looked fab in their costumes. It was great to see everyone making so much effort.”
