The Menger Bar opened in 1859 along with the Menger Hotel. As with many southern state bars during the Civil War, the bar was the site of many a brawl and gun fights, with it today carrying the dubious title of “most haunted hotel in Texas” with up to 32 ghosts said to roam its halls. Its most famous is none other than former US President Teddy Roosevelt, who used the hotel to recruit cowboys for the military. The ghost of Roosevelt has reportedly been seen having a drink at one of the hotel’s bars, however the most commonly sighted spirit is a woman named Sallie White, a former chambermaid who was attacked by her husband in the hotel lobby and died two days later. She is commonly seen turning down beds in the Victorian wing of the hotel. One guest reported emerging from the show to see a ghost dressed in a buckskin jacket and grey pants engaged in a heated conversation with an unseen presence shouting “are you gonna stay or are you gonna go?”, three times before vanishing.

    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.
