In honor of the Halloween season, The High Line Hotel in New York City is offering exclusive Pumpkin Service plus Bottle Service every Thursday and Friday in October, starting October 4.

Guests in the hotel’s front garden are treated to a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label NV and get their own pumpkin, carved to order, by master carver in residence Brent Heuser.

And by “carved to order,” they literally mean carved to order. You can get any design you wish. A portrait of yourself, your loved one, your pet, or perhaps your favorite cartoon character, your business logo, or even a perfect likeness of the Mona Lisa. You name it.

In addition, The Bar at the High Line Hotel has tons of seasonal cocktails, beer, wine, and exclusive Pinhook small-batch bourbons to celebrate the fall season. The hotel also hosts a Halloween Dog Costume Parade on Sunday, October 28, so you might say this place has the holiday on lock.

Each pumpkin and bottle service reservation lasts for 45 minutes and costs $125 per session. Reservations are available from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays in October.

For more information on how to get your own boo-tiful pumpkin, visit the High Line Hotel website.
