The Moon River Brewery is located in one of Savannah’s oldest buildings with a history dating back to 1821. Originally the City Hotel, the building has a well documented  history of violence, particularly during the Civil War. During the spring of 1832, a feud broke out between local man James Stark and the city physician, Dr. Phillip Minis who shot Stark at the hotel’s bar for making disparaging remarks about him. In 1860 a New Yorker was near beaten to death by locals who did not take kindly to his presence. The building was renovated in the 1990s and turned into the Moon River Brewing Company and to this day customers and staff have reported strange, often violent, occurrences. Reports include bottles being thrown by unseen forces and people being touched, pushed, and slapped by invisible spirits. One ghostly figure is known as “Toby” who is said to lurk in the bar’s billiard room where he has been known to push patrons and staff.

    If you don’t include McMenamins White Eagle Saloon in Portland Oregon this isn’t much of a list. http://www.mcmenamins.com/WhiteEagle

    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.
