Char Bar

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  Char Bar

This bar is connected to a labyrinth of tunnels that run underneath the city, which is where the historic buildings haunting’s stem from. Staff have observed a hooded spectre in black robes in the basement underneath the building, who vanishes when approached. Upon investigation, staff located the entrance to a tunnel underneath the bar, which is roughly where the spook vanished.

  1. We have a graduation at the Hilton every year. We always visit the Char Bar because it’s next door. I was in the men’s room & there is a chalk board over the urinals. I was reading the board & heard the bathroom door open & someone went into the stall next to me. It only has one stall. I heard both doors open, main door & stall door. When I finished I glanced over & the stall door was,open & I was in the bathroom alone. I have never had anything like this happen before. It was one of those moments where I had to ask myself did that really just happen.

  2. My husband and I go there from time to time. We actually go to the basement, as per my request. I feel there is a lonely woman there. We play Moonlight Sonata. I don’t know why I feel compelled, it just feels right. There is also a broken down piano there, I’ve heard sometimes you’ll hear a key stroke
