Welcome to North Carolina, a state full of history and charm. If you have a healthy appetite for exploring places of historical significance, you’ll fit right in. If you’re looking to hunt down spirits of yesteryear… well, you will also fit right in. Our state, you see, is full of haunted places. One of the most unexpected haunted bars in North Carolina can be found in Uptown Charlotte, and though it is welcoming and friendly, its resident spirits are just a tad bit mischievous. Prepare to wine and dine with spirits, because you just might find the opportunity to do so at Rí Rá Charlotte.
While there are arguably several haunted bars in North Carolina, few quite compare to the eclectic atmosphere of Rí Rá Charlotte. Have you ever visited this historic local landmark? Have you had paranormal experiences elsewhere in the state? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
