Ethyl's Party Chicago

"There is no sign, because a tall truck knoked it down about five years ago, and he just never got along to putting a new one up. The name comes from this old bum on the streets that [the owner] and his freinds way back when would give money to, his name was Ethyl. Lets see, ghosts... you might not believe some of these but I got tons. First back when business was just starting out a burgler tried to rob it, but once he got all the cash and ran for the door he suddenly had a heart attack. Doctors found he had no condition, blood pressure or anything. Another time, my brother and I were sitting on the couch under the TV by the bowling machine, and from behind us we heard a creepy voice say my brother's name... Another time a band was playing there and someone took a photo of them, and when the picture came out there was mist under light, no smoke machines were on, or anything so they just decided that it was a ghost. Many 'ghost hunters' have been there but never got anything, except one guy..."

– Q.T. (December 1, 2009)

Full review coming soon... In the meantime, you may be interested to know that the Art Deco building housing this neighborhood bar was formerly Tito's and a funeral home prior to that, reputed to be haunted.
