Ida Claire Stirs Up Drink Specials, Scary Movies for Halloween Soirée

Ida Claire's Shrimp & GritsDallas’ Southern Belle invites costumed guests to stay “until Ida kicks you out!”

Ida Claire is more than one of the coolest new dining destinations in Dallas. She’s also the Southern hostess with the mostest, especially when it comes to her favorite holiday.

And this Oct. 31st, she’s throwing a soirée that just might go down in Halloween infamy.

The party begins at 10 p.m., and it won’t be over till Ida says it’s over (spoiler alert: 2 a.m.). All guests who arrive in their Halloween best will be automatically entered into a costume contest, with a 50” television as the grand prize!

Ida will also be offering “Vinyl Hour” all night, featuring specially priced punches, juleps, a wide variety of draft beers and other devilish concoctions for your spirited delight. She’ll also be screening scary movies in her garden while a witches den beckons from the Airstream.

And to help you remember what you did “the morning after,” Ida will be setting up a photo booth to capture all the spooky moments you dare to share.

Ida Claire – South of Ordinary – is an intriguing, southern-inspired destination for relaxing suppers and slow weekend brunching, as well as a meeting hub for business lunches and happy hours.

Ida lives at 5001 Belt Line Road in Dallas. Learn more about her at, email her at or call her, maybe, at 214.377.8227.
