Think you’ve been seeing ghosts while sipping spirits at the Handlebar in downtown Austin? It may not be your imagination.
YNN’s Jess Mitchell joined Monica Ballard of Austin Ghost Tours to learn more about paranormal experiences some have had at the bar on East 5th Street.
Ballard said she discovered while doing research on a neighboring building that the Handlebar occupies a building that used to be a funeral home. Staff at the bar say that explains some unusual noises and occurrences in the basement and some side rooms.
From children’s handprints mysteriously appearing in the bathroom to ice scoops flying across the room, some suspect the bar is haunted.
YNN might have even experienced its own ghostly encounter while at the bar. Check out the video to see what happened!
