Top 10 most haunted US bars

Julep’s, Richmond, Virginia


Formerly a weapon shop Julep’s restaurant is said to be haunted by the ghost of a gunsmith Daniel Denoon who, in 1826, was murdered by its owner, James McNaught. The shop quickly closed and McNaught later committed suicide after being jailed. Julep moved into the site in 2003 remodelling the shop and shutting off the stairs when Denoon fell down and turning the space instead into a storage closet. To this day visitors and employees to the restaurant have reported hearing thumps and rushes of cold air coming from the closet at the spot where Denoon was killed.

    If you don’t include McMenamins White Eagle Saloon in Portland Oregon this isn’t much of a list.

    What about Chet’s Melody Lounge, Justice (suburban Chicago) IL. The most haunted bar in the Midwest. Across the street from Resurrection Cemetery, home of the well-known vanishing hitchhiker Resurrection Mary. She occasionally drifts over for a cocktail when the place is quiet, which does not surprise the staff at all.
