Sip Beer And Mingle With Ghosts In One Of Nashville’s Oldest, Most Haunted Bars
There are plenty of old haunts in Nashville, pun most definitely intended. The colorful honkytonks downtown have been around for ages and there are hole-in-the-wall East Nashville venues that have attracted locals for years. The real question is: how many of them have a haunted history? The answer is not many, except for the highly popular Flying Saucer. Located in Nashville’s downtown neighborhood, it’s a local’s dream and a tourist’s treasure.
The Flying Saucer offers up more than 80 types of beer on tap with another 120 flavors available in bottles. It's a highly popular local watering hole, boasting reams of local pride and even a trivia night to encourage a sense of community and camaraderie.
The lively atmosphere and tavern-esque surroundings only add to the overall liveliness of the place. Indulge in classic bar fare and global beers while experiencing fantastic service...
...and enjoying a low-key evening out with friends. It's a win-win for everyone, right? Maybe.
The Flying Saucer Is located in what used to be the baggage claim area for the nearby Union Station railroad terminal. Whereas the body of the old building now operates as a luxury hotel, the baggage area has been renovated into this hip and fun local tavern. But why is it haunted?
Union Station is where a majority of young men in Tennessee left to report for duty during World War II. It's also where, after the Great Train Wreck of 1918 at Dutchman's Curve occurred, a large amount of the injured and dying were taken once the hospitals reached capacity.
While you're laughing with friends or wandering the halls on the way to the restroom, you may find yourself in cold spots or feeling the presence of someone who isn't quite there. Many people died in the aftermath of the great wreck, and their spirits are said to (perhaps) walk the premises. But the only way to find out?
Is to visit for yourself! You can head over to 111 10th Ave S #310 in Nashville, Tennessee for a good beer and a great time.
