2. Big Nose Kate’s Saloon, Tombstone

Address: 417 E Allen St, Tombstone
3. Casey Moore’s Oyster House, Tempe
Located just off the busy Mill Avenue, Casey Moore’s Oyster House is located inside a historic bungalow-style home and rumor has it that the upstairs portion of the home is haunted. Even if you don’t manage to spot a ghost here, you can have some fantastic oysters on the half shell here.

Another haunted spot in Tombstone, the Crystal Palace is apparently where you can spot Big Nose Kate’s ghost and random items moving on their own.

Address: 201 N Court Ave, Tucson
8. Mile High Grill & Inn, Jerome
The number of haunted places in Jerome is a long one but this hotel and restaurant is well-known for a fluffier kind of ghost. This building is haunted by Sipps the cat who has been known to wander the halls, sleep on beds, and even rub itself against patrons. If you feel a tail flickering by your feet while dining on some fish and chips, don’t be alarmed! That’s just the kitty.
Address: 309 Main St, Jerome
9. Monte Vista Cocktail Lounge, Flagstaff

10. The Museum Club, Flagstaff
This building dates to 1931 and was turned into a roadhouse a few years after the original owner’s death. The building is supposedly haunted by Pappy, a man who owned the Museum Club in the 1960s and 1970s, and his wife Lorna. There’s no need to worry about terrifying encounters, however. These two tend to be more playful by playing with the bottles at the bar or standing among patrons.
