Have a Merry Scary Time on Downtown El Paso Haunted Bar Crawl
If you're looking for a fun and unique way to experience a handful of the downtown watering holes on Thanksgiving weekend, the Haunted Downtown Bar Crawl may be just the thing for you.
Lost El Paso Paranormal is leading the two-hour toasts to ghosts event on Saturday, November 27, 2021.
The supernatural adventure features spine-tingling tales of ghosts, ghouls and the creepy happenings that have occurred within the walls of some of downtown's haunted bars and nightclubs.
And, of course, some liquid courage while you get your spook on. It is a bar crawl, after all.
Lost El Paso Paranormal founder and costumed tour guide Heather Shade says guests will meet up at the Briar Patch/Hyde Patio Bar, which is reportedly home to several restless spirits.
Employees have had many strange experiences in this location, according to Shade.
In one instance, a young lady was seen entering the restroom, and when she had not emerged after a long while, employees went to check on her. They found the door was locked from the inside, and there was no response to their calls. The door had to be forcibly removed, only to reveal a totally empty restroom with no one inside.
The evening of seeking spirits of both the ghost and alcoholic variety will end at B-17 Bombers Oyster Pub, where Shade said customers and employees have claimed to see an apparition of a woman in a long old-fashioned dress standing in the back hallway staring out onto the bar area.
Various staff members have experienced other unexplained phenomena since the place was renovated and B-17 moved in several years ago.
One afternoon a bartender got quite a scare when someone or something started banging on the drums that were up on the stage, Heather related to me. When the person turned and looked, no one was on the stage. Bartenders have also told us that there are times when they are alone, but feel like they are being watched.
“There is definitely a vibe in the place,” Shade concludes. For tickets, times, and the meet up location visit the Lost El Paso Paranormal website.
