Downtown's 21c Museum Hotel gets in the spooky spirit again this season with its second-annual Secret Garden-themed Halloween party: Secret Garden Redux: Creatures of the Night.

This dance party — "inspired by other-worldly animalia" — will feature a mystical garden theme with music from DJs Planet Venus and CJ Wood and pop-up dance performances by Pones and DANCEFIX, as well as performances from Elevated Aerials aerial artists. There will be a photobooth (from Floyd Johnson of Ohio Against the World) and free costumey makeup touch-ups from local makeup professionals. 

According to a press release, "The event surrounds the opening of 21c’s latest exhibit Truth or Dare: A Reality Show, which emphasizes the importance of questioning both knowledge and belief, featuring artworks that utilize illusion to entice, entertain and explore the terrain between fact and fiction, presence and absence, reality and imagination."

Costumes are highly encouraged and the winner(s) of the costume contest will receive a prize. 

The hotel's bar and restaurant Metropole will be creating themed creepy cocktails and a Halloween punch. Party is 21 and up. Admission is free with a suggested $10 donation to benefit the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio. 

9 p.m. Oct. 27. Free; $10 donation suggestion. 21c Museum Hotel, 609 Walnut St., Downtown,
