The ghost of Groucho Marx frequents here. The owner has reported the smell of cigar smoke or a trail of cigar ashes manifesting despite no one being around. While the building was being replastered, Marx’s face appeared in the plaster despite no one having a key to get inside. Marx’s spirit also is said to move items around and play with the lights.
