The Ned NoMad celebrated Halloween with a takeover with The Box on October 27th and 28th, 2023, as The Haunted Hotel hosted by Richie Akiva. The elaborate conversion of the hotel was designed by Richie Akiva in collaboration with Outside The Box Amusements, who will bring their incredible skill to transform The Ned NoMad into an eerie, frightening and barely recognizable haunted world. The 2023 setting features scenes inspired by classic horror films with extravagant themed immersive experiences scaring guests at every turn from a devil-led Poker game to an orgasm room, zombie bellhops and much more. The Haunted Hotel consumed all areas of The Ned NoMad, the recently opened hotel and membership club located in the historic NoMad district, from The Magic Room to The Library to Little Ned Bar and every hallway and nook in between, including the enter second floor of hotel rooms. The party kicked off on the 27th for members followed by a second VIP filled evening on the 28th, where guests enjoyed flowing libations from Cierto Tequila and engaging music to keep partygoers on the dancefloor all evening long for an epic Halloween celebration with a massive lineup of in-demand DJs and incredible artistic performers.

The evenings were hosted and produced by The Ned’s Richie Akiva with The Box featuring production by The Box’s experiential production company, Outside The Box Amusements, a creative foundry of bespoke hospitality, world-class entertainment and innovative design. The collaboration marked the second consecutive year with 2023 featuring an intricately designed immersive experience for partygoers unlike any other. The evening was presented by Cierto Tequila, an authentic, 100% natural, luxury, additive-free tequila made in Jalisco, Mexico. Guests at the fete sipped and celebrated with Cierto for the Halloween celebrations.
