Each space has its own music style, acts and theme. The main hall of the Hotel Arena club is a former chapel, with 7-meter high ceilings, murals and marble pillars.

Beyond a party
What sets Spook apart from the rest? Born from the underground, Halloween by Amsterdam Spook is about a fun, genuine take on Halloween and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. It’s not about big name DJs or mass crowds. It is the costumes, themes, décor, performers, SFX artists, body painters, creative collaborators, and free-spirited misfits that are the lifeblood of these events. Check out past parties for a taste.
