Halloween is right around the corner and there’s no better time to check out some of the spookiest haunts around the country. Music fans and those curious about supernatural love head to Bobby Mackey’s Music World, a Kentucky bar just across the street from Cincinnati.
According to local legend, the basement of the Reformed Slaughterhouse was once the site of satanic rituals over a century ago. A few decades later, a man named Buck Brady saw the vacant building as a business opportunity. He took over the space and turned it into The Primrose Club, an upscale bar that attracted the rich and famous from southern Ohio and northern Kentucky.
Brady’s success was short-lived, as he died by suicide following the Chicago mob’s takeover of the nightclub. The club then served as a hub for illegal activities, including prostitution and gambling. Decades later, several shootings took place in the club.
In the late 1970s, country singer Bobby Mackey bought the building and renovated it into a new space, but the spirits of those who passed by still seem to haunt the bar to this day. From the reported portal to hell in the Slaughterhouse drain to the strange apparitions, there is definitely something strange in the air at this country music mecca.
