Book a stay on the Alfred Hitchcock floor at Arthouse Hotel and have a scream this Halloween in Liverpool with all your friends.
Halloween is just around the corner so we’ve taken a look at how the master of macabre, Alfred Hitchcock, chose to celebrate his love of horror and haunting. The bash he threw for the Warner Brother top brass in March 1956 showed that Halloween must have surely been his favourite time of year.
Our Hitchcock movie-themed hotel rooms are dedicated to the great director and his work, to help our guests celebrate all things spooky in style.
Check out this amazing account of the spookiest party in town during 1956 at Alfred’s own horrifying New York Haunted House Party.
The perfect party location
In true Hitchcock fashion, it was all about location, location, location when it came to planning his grand New York Haunted House Party.
source: The Splendid Table
He sent out his team, Young and Rubicam, to track down a Hitchcock appropriate venue to host his hotly anticipated house party.
The stipulation was that the venue should;
Be able to cater to a number of VIP guests
Have a glamorous yet chilling interior
And most importantly have its very own supernatural presence
The task at hand seemed daunting at first when the team first attempts to secure out a genuine haunted house in New York.
The Wine Cellars of Brooklyn Bridge
They came up trumps with Hitchcock’s first two criteria but were stumped time and time again when it came to finding a real live haunted house.
Luckily a tip came in that the wine cellars under the Brooklyn Bridge ticked all the boxes on Hitchcock’s list.
Together Young and Rubicam and an excited Mr Hitchcock took a tour of the cellars and discovered, at last, the ideal space in which to host Hitchcock’s epic Halloween bash.
source: The Cave Wine Storage
The walls were dripping, dank and dark and even the whispers of the team members echoed around the cavernous space creating ghostly whispers.
Sadly a Hitch presented itself.
There was no plumbing throughout the cellars and Hitchcock’s most distinguished guests could not expect to go without washrooms for the entire shindig. Prices for temporary fixtures were assembled totalling $800.
The wine cellars were a no go and the search continued.
The Old Merchants House
The people of New York all began to get involved in the search and tips kept rolling in about supposedly haunted buildings that were ideal for Hitchcock’s house of horrors.
The Old Merchant House was scouted as another possible venue. The perfectly preserved period home was ideally spooky and was rumoured to have ghosts of its very own.
source; NY Adventure Club
Those who inherited The Old Merchant House told stories of ghostly happenings. Convinced that nine members of the Treadwell family who lived and died on the property continued to haunt it they opened the home up as a museum.
Hitchcock, upon visiting the house was overjoyed with the preservation of the home and believed it would make a smashing venue for his VIP haunted house party.
source: landmarkinteriorsAgain, it was not to be as the kin of the Treadwell family could not consider a party being held inside their historical landmark giving Hitchcock and his team a blunt no when the idea was suggested.
The search went on.
Today The Old Merchant House is still perfectly preserved and receives regular visitors with a keen interest in the history of the home and its haunting past.
Taking matters into his own hand Hitchcock reached out to the American Psychic Research Society who responded that New York had become too modern a city to host any sort of supernatural spirit.
Hitchcock then placed an advert in The Times real estate section asking for people to call in with any ideas. Young and Rubicam were bombarded with over 100 telephone calls a day but none of the leads could conjure evidence or even stories of ghostly presences in their proposed properties.
There were suggestions of homes in Jackson Heights with real graves in the garden, a place in Englewood for sale with reports of a poltergeist but Hitchcock preferred to stay in the city centre.
On Staten Island, there was an agent trying to rent his property to Hitchcock for $5000 because it had nightly spiritual torments which gave Hitchcock chills but not because of the ghosts.
The Winning Location
After his short but exhaustive search for the most haunted house in New York Hitchcock and his team settled on the towering townhouse on 7 East 80TH Street.
The abandoned cobweb-laden mansion was sans spirits but Hitchcock’s patience was spent and he settled for a venue that looked haunted but wasn’t.
This was no problem for the master of suspense and horror as he and his crew set to work stirring up the dusty corners of the extensive property and adding some eerie extra touches here and there.
Hitchcock placed coffin shaped bars around the home, and well placed hidden speakers provided spooky moans and groans of fictional ghoulies throughout the building.
Using the ancient furnishings to his benefit Hitchcock accentuated the decay of century-old paintings, elaborate antique chandeliers and thick dusty drapes. The perfect mood lighting was installed and Hitchcock’s haunted house party was finally taking shape.
The Monstrous Menu
A stickler for the finer details Hitchcock ensured that if he couldn’t frighten his guests with real ghosts he would try instead with his party menu.
Inside the carefully crafted Tombstone Shaped invitations guests received a copy of this cleverly conceived menu of the macabre;
Carte de Morte
Morbid Morgue Mussels, Suicide Suzettes avec Crepe, Consommé de Cobra, Vicious-Soisse
Home-Fried Homicide, Ragout of Reptile, Charcoal-broiled Same-Witch Legs, Corpse Croquettes, Barbecued Banshee au Gratin, Opium Omelette en Brochette, Stuffed Stiffs with Hard Sauce, Gibbeted Giblets, Monster Thermidor, Tormented Tortillas, Ghoulish Goulash, Blind Bats en casserole
Fromage d’Abbatoir, Python Pudding, Morphine Meringue Glace, Fresh cut Lady Fingers (in season)
Bloody Marys, Anisette d’Arsenic, Hennessy’s Heroin, Dead Grand-dad, Formaldehyde Frappe
Guests came dressed to impress in all manners of upper-class attire, and photos show that the drinks were flowing as the spookfest played out.
On top of all the extravagant food, there was also a detailed party cake made to resemble a church and graveyard, complete with inedible cobwebs draped across so that it almost looked a part of the house.
Not to leave things to chance Hitchcock utilised his movie know how to give his guests an extra fright in the night.
One of his cheeky tricks included a decrepit old man left in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Clever makeup and special effects made this character seem like he could have been left to pass away in the house and forgotten.
This was not the only haunting house party Hitchcock threw during his years as master of suspense. Other notorious party rumours circulate about the director hosting events in LA where guests were handed shovels and asked to exhume several buried skulls bureid around the property garden.
If we could attend any Halloween party we think Hitchcock’s soirées might have been the most terrifying ones of all time.

What about the Warhol floor?
Andy Warhol was the father of popular culture. He masterfully mixed the art world with celebrity lifestyle and corporate advertising and was a talented artist who became a figurehead in many avenues of artistic expression.
His coined phrase “15 Minutes of Fame” has been adapted into a stunning hotel room on our Warhol floor.
Warhol himself famously prophesied that;
“everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”
A prediction that has been realised today through reality TV shows that give everyday people the chance to be famous for at least 15 minutes.
Perhaps his most commercially successful movie directed was Chelsea Girls. A theme we chose to apply to our very own luxury hotel room. The Chelsea Girl’s movie depicts the lives of young socialites living at the Chelsea hotel in New York.
Cast members of the film included some of those dubbed Warhol’s Superstars. These individuals formed a select social circle of Warhol’s muses and served as his inspiration. Musicians, models actresses and socialites, who were basically the cool kids of the 60’s and 70’s.
If you wish that you could be like the cool kids, then why not chose the Warhol floor for your stay at Arthouse hotel.
