This permanent three-story mansion of the macabre has authenticity on its side, not only with its past life as a crematorium, but with its clientele of goths and menu of absinthe-laced cocktails. Beyond the high-end and highly frightening haunted house you’ll find a morgue-themed restaurant called the Crypt Café, a candelabra-lit bar, and a theater hosting campy illusionists, among other spooky things. Note: There’s no fee to enter the restaurant, so if you’re not gutsy enough for the house, stop by for some of Satan’s Sliders (with fries, $12.95) or a Witches Brew (soup of the day, $4.95). For while the ghouls and goblins trolling through the halls above Times Square may terrify you, the prices for grub are decidedly not so scary.
