This tavern is believed to be the residence of a ghost named Irma, who died in a fire in this area during the 1700s. Since legend has it that the fire was started by a dropped candle, the ghost is known to blow out candles and perform other helpful tasks for the staff. Reports say that the employees here say good night to their beloved ghost every night upon closing the place.
