The Haunted Bar That’s Been Around Since Before Arizona Was Even A State
Watering holes have been popular here in Arizona since before statehood was even achieved. One bar, the Palace Restaurant & Saloon, dates back all the way back to 1877. Given its gruesome history that includes both fires and murder, it’s safe to assume the place is crawling with spirits. Even the investigators from the TV show “Ghost Adventures” had trouble keeping evil at bay!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
