    1. I worked at Excalibur. Inside the Dome Room the taps with red wine would turn on after patrons had left, allowing the red wine to flow.
      Also, after lighting all candles on the tables (for opening the club) after each one had been lit, a little girls laughter would be heard as each candle blew out individually.
      There is an evil presence in the dry storage area of the main club.

    2. There is a wonderful, spiritual presence at the location, that once used to be called the “Dome Room.” I consider myself to have intuectuall instincts and be a basic medium. The energy here, for the most part, is good. I never enjoyed crossing over to the other side of the club, which was considered at the time, Excliber. There was a revolivig door and between doors and it felt like you went from heaven into hell. I immediately went back to the Dome Room… My feeling was relief. I would never step forth in that side of the establishment again, ever. It felt evil, hellish and overwhelmingly suffocating.

    3. First of all, I don’t really believe in “ghosts”, but one night a long time ago when Chicago Public Schools had actually canceled classes due to horrific weather conditions, my friends and I went to go visit my friend who worked at Excalibur. The candles would go out and re-light on their own. My friend and I liked at each other in disbelief. Both of us said to each other, “DI’d you just see that? ” We were both completely freaked out. The bar was pretty much empty except for the few people who worked there and me and my friend. Dee

    4. Used to know a guy that bartended there, he said no one liked to go into the storage alone, and described what I interpret as shadow people or persons up there. I’ve never seen anything myself, but refuse to go there…something bad ALWAYS came of the events of an evening if I stopped there…like bad luck rubbed off on me or something.
