Several bars and restaurants in Sunnyside are hosting Halloween events this weekend with many featuring costume prizes, drink specials and special DJs.

Claret Wine Bar, located at 46-02 Skiillman Ave. is holding its 12th annual Halloween party Saturday, featuring a live DJ and special drink promotions such as $5 draft beers.

The party, which kicks off at 8 p.m., will include prizes for the best dressed attendees.

The event is typically a big draw each year, with many party goers known for dressing in a variety of innovative and original Halloween costumes.

Jean Clancy, co-owner of Claret, said that this year’s party was shaping up to be Claret’s biggest yet.

Meanwhile, Bantry Bay Publick House, a popular eclectic American eatery and bar located at 33-01 Greenpoint Ave., will have a costume contest for the best “solo” and “couples” costume. A special guest DJ will come on at 10 p.m.

The Halloween event at Bar 43, located just off Queens Boulevard on 43rd Street, kicks off at 9 p.m. Saturday. The party will include drink specials and prizes for best costume.

Also part of the festivities, Jack’s Fire Department Bar at 39-46 Skillman Ave. will be having a Halloween party Saturday night. The bar is hosting a competition for best costume with a $200 first prize. Jack’s will also give a prize to the best dressed couple.

Jack’s is offering an open bar option of $40 and will have live music at its party on Saturday. The party kicks off at 9 p.m. and guests must be in the bar by 11 p.m. in order to have a chance of winning the costume competition.

Arriba Arriba, a Mexican eatery at 40-15 Queens Blvd., is holding a party on Saturday and on Halloween itself. Both parties include prizes for best dressed guests, $6 frozen margaritas and sangria and a live DJ.

The Globe Tavern, meanwhile, is holding two Halloween parties — one on Saturday and another on Oct. 31. Both parties at the 49-10 Skillman Ave. establishment will feature karaoke and a costume contest.
