The PUBLIC Hotel Does Their First Halloween

Throwing it back to Studio 54 Halloween parties

Since the PUBLIC Hotel opened this past summer, it has become the choice setting for some of the biggest parties of the year. From Unemployed Magazines rooftop party to the major NYFW takeovers by Mert & Marcus, Kenzo, Galore etc., we’ve found a reason to experience every inch of the hotel.

So for their first Halloween party, PUBLIC decided to do something new. With the help of Mark Ravitz, who was a set designer for David Bowie and designed the raucous Halloween parties at Studio 54, PUBLIC Arts was transformed into a the PUBLIC Asylum replete with Donal Trump (controlled by the Devil of course), a Harvey Weinstein sex-therapy room, a morgue, and of course, an open bar—though a cash bar for the ultra-private event would have been the scariest thing of all. Not only were guests required to bring in their physical tickets—important for a place where everyone knows someone who knows someone on the list—but you couldn’t get in without a costume, ensuring the inside was only filled with those willing to put their inhibitions aside and have a good time.  It was another strong showing from PUBLIC, and only makes us wonder what they have cooking up for New Year’s Eve…
