The House of Spirits: A Haunted Cocktail Soirée is an immersive cocktail experience that combines the thrill of the supernatural and magic with themed cocktails.
We had the chance to mingle with strange specters, witness secret ceremonies, commune with the spirits on a giant Ouija Board, and enjoy miniature cocktails, magic, music and more! They claim the experience to be a one-of-a-kind haunted cocktail soirée…
Guests were highly encourage to dress in time period fashion, which my friend Rachael and I interpreted as maybe a 1920s style. I ended up with a 1940s style look because I was very intrigued by this hair style (the victory roll). I found this very utilitarian-style dress on Amazon and paired it with black patent leather t-strap heels. Then I put in effort with the accessories: beaded bag, seamed stockings, gem earrings, and a set of fingerless gloves.
The experience: It was way too packed! Our tickets allowed us a two-hour window, but there had to have been 150-200 people in attendance. There was no air conditioning, so we were sweating our butts off. Literally. The line was so long for the creature adventure, that the creatures were telling us where the clues were. The haunted house in the basement was so dark that you could see where you were walking. The drinks were very small, but had fun themes!

The Alexander Mansion, the 12,500-square-foot home at 4607 Ross Ave., is one of the last original mansions that remain on Ross Avenue in Old East Dallas. Designed by architect Sanguinett & Staats of Fort Worth with C.D> Hill, the original cost was $125,000…or about ten million in today’s money! They house was beautiful! It opened up to a grand staircase with a stained glass window and was full of wood craftsman-style features. You can read more about the history from the Dallas Woman’s Forum.
