It's unfortunate to see how many other people were disappointed with this "event". The event was promoted as "Haunted Halloween" but there were barely any decorations so I'm not sure why we paid for a ticket. Where did all of this money go? Far Rockaway was overcrowded and it was impossible to get a drink at the bar. Staff were rude and there wasn't even a coat check. When we arrived there was a rack standing alone in a dark room. Again, where did the event ticket money go? Music couldn't be heard in the back room and my friends and I all got so irritated by the disorganization and lack of respect for the guests at Far Rockaway that we left well before we had anticipated. I will as well be requesting a refund.

First time for my friends and I. We liked the decoration of the place and the music. However at some point it was not possible to get a drink at the bar. And after waiting 20 minutes we decided to give up as one of the waiters totally ignored me even if I was in front of him for ages. The worst part was the end, when you realized that the clockroom was definetely not a clockroom and that you paid £2 per item to hear a lady say "go inside and look for your coat with the light of your mobile phone". I mean, really??? I've paid to find my coat in a total mess. Great! They clearly have to focus on improving their organization on big dates as Halloween. Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

It was a shame about the music cutting out/ being very low at times as that ruined the vibe. Also I didn't think much of the music choices, there wasn't really much that could be danced to. The lights were kept on on one half of the venue which was irritating and because that was the same side where the music didn't work everyone went to the other side making it very, very hot and difficult to get around. If it wasn't for the fun of seeing peoples costumes I would probably have left earlier. Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

I found the venue to be really nice. We loved the music, I wish more places played this music nowadays. Overall we enjoyed a good dance. However the door staff was extremely rude and the sound system was awful. There was a minimum 10£ for whoever paid drinks by card which made it unbearable. The toilets extremely dirty. One of our friends was questioned about not having a full costume at the door although half of the people allowed in were not even appropriately dressed up and there was even a topless guy allowed in which made me wonder why they claimed to be so strict about costumes? There was also plenty of inappropriate behaviour by some of the clubbers including guys indecently touching or disturbing girls. It would be nice if next time there was staff circulating and addressing such issues as we almost got into a fight with a creep who repeatedly threw himself on our sofa.

I agree with the previous comments, this event was terrible. It wasn't worth the ticket money, I don't know why it was a paid ticket only event either but i am glad i didn't persist on my other friends coming as they would have been very disappointed. The venue kept the lights on and wasn't greatly decorated, the speakers were rubbish, the music couldn't be heard throughout the bar and even stopped at one point. The DJ was also very mediocre I felt i was at a school disco or a local pub. I feel the advertising lied to us. Also one other thing was when we went to get our coats all the bags and coats were scattered around the cloakroom with a woman holding a flash light on her phone telling us to come in, dig through all the piles of bags and coats and take what is ours, she didn't even check the tags I literally could of picked up anyone's coat and bag and left. As we left early due to it being a big disappointment we were lucky to find our bags. I feel sorry for those with black coats as there were mountains of them chucked to one side. I feel as though it was a big scam really annoyed as we all made a huge effort with costumes, the only good thing was seeing what other people dressed up as. Just to say again very very disappointed and if you were considering going to a faded night...don't! Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

So disappointed with this event and will be requesting my money back. We had dressed up in full costume and when we arrived, not only were the security rude, there was no halloween decorations what so ever and we had to wait for an hour to get a drink. The music kept cutting out and the speakers didnt work in one of the spaces. They knew exactly how many people were attending, so they should have been prepared for this event, but they couldn't handle the volume of customers.. meaning the "queues" at the bar were unbelieveable.. people were pushing, shoving and getting into fights at the bar. I have never seen anything like it. We got so frustrated that we just gave up and left... sober. Will be avoiding any Faded events in the future, as well as Far Rock Away. Agree with Laurap88 that it is unacceptable and dont know why it was a paid event. If there was a 0 star rating, that is what it would be getting. Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

I entirely agree with Courtney. I would not recommend a Faded event like Haunted Halloween to anyone. You had to wait close to an hour to get a drink and it forced a lot of people to get quite pushy. We left well before we'd planned to because none of us had been able to have a drink in more than an hour! That is completely unacceptable when they would have known exactly how many people would be attending. I definitely question why it was a paid event, especially when you also consider that the speakers weren’t working properly in part of the bar and there wasn’t much of an effort made with decorations.

Would not pay to go to another Faded event again. Event was so overcrowded and we had to wait at least 45 minutes at the bar each time we wanted a drink. Tickets shouldn't be sold to so many people if the venue / staffing capacity can't accommodate. DJ was average and Security guards were anal. Would recommend avoiding Faded events to anyone contemplating going. Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

not funny even the Holloween night..! How could it be ? I'm not sure I'll go there again.. I think it's my mistake to choose this club. the biggest problem is music. music couldn't satisfy a demand Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

left after 30mins. bar was so crowded was impossible to get drinks. If you're going to sell tickets to that many people have enough bar space, staff to serve people. Ruined our night Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

The event was over sold, over priced, and under staffed. We waited over an hour at the bar every time we wanted drinks, and for a large part of the night there was only music in the front room. Would not go to another Faded event. Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

The venue and music were good, but they let way too many people in. There was no decent space to dance as you were always caught amongst people trying to get somewhere. There was also a technical difficulty with the DJ so it was a good hour of sub-standard music. I won't be returning to this event. Visited Far Rockaway on 2015-10-31

The venue was good, but the night was ridiculously overcrowded. It took far too long to get a drink, it was impossible to even get to the bar at 12pm. I saw a fight break out because of this. The queue for the cloakroom was ridiculous so I held onto my jacket. My friends were pushed aggressively to get out of the toilets because it was so busy. Would avoid any night organised by the same people.
