The Haunted Hotel at The Ned Nomad Produced and Hosted by Richie Akiva and The Box
Richie Akiva's The Ned NoMad celebrated their inaugural NYC Halloween with a takeover by The Box on October 28th and 29th, 2022, as The Haunted Hotel hosted by Richie Akiva. The elaborate conversion of the hotel was designed by Richie Akiva in collaboration with Outside The Box Amusements, who brought their incredible skill to transform The Ned NoMad into an eerie, frightening and barely recognizable haunted world illustrated by characters and scenes from films such as Poltergeist and Psycho with extravagant themed performers scaring guests at every turn. The Haunted Hotel consumed all areas of The Ned NoMad, the newly opened hotel and membership club located in the historic NoMad district, from The Magic Room to The Library to The Rooftop, and every hallway and nook in between. Kicking off on the 28th for members followed by a VIP filled evening on the 29th, guests enjoyed flowing libations and engaging music kept partygoers on the dancefloor all evening long for an epic Halloween celebration.
The evenings were hosted and produced by The Ned's Richie Akiva with The Box featuring production by The Box's experiential production company, Outside The Box Amusements, a creative foundry of bespoke hospitality, world-class entertainment and innovative design.
