Top 10 most haunted US bars

Ear Inn, New York

3-ear-inn-new-yorkThe Ear Inn, constructed in 1817, is one of New York’s oldest bars and was once a favourite haunt among sailors merchants and pirates because of its proximity to the Hudson River. It is believed to be haunted by the ghost of a sailor named Mickey who was killed there. The sailor’s spirit is said to be particularly amorous and is often accused of “goosing” waitresses. His attempts at seduction get all the more creepy for those brave enough to stay the night. As reported by the NY Daily News, Brett Watson, paranormal expert, said: “Supposedly women who’ve lived upstairs above the bar say that the ghost has crawled into bed with them. He’s a sailor. Sailors are going to do what they’re going to do.”

    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.
