Haunted Pub Tour
Uncover Portland’s dark side and explore the history of the Shanghai Tunnels on this spine-tingling ghost tour. Alive with restaurants and nightlife today, 100 years ago Portland’s Historic Old Town District was home to many less savory establishments – opium dens, brothels, and underground speakeasies.
While locals avoided the city’s dangerous “North End,” unsuspecting sailors were often ruthlessly abducted and held for days in the notorious Shanghai Tunnels. Famous gangsters ran entire underground criminal empires – alcohol and drug smuggling, bribery, extortion, gambling and kidnapping. This earned Portland the reputation as one of the world’s most dangerous port cities in the 1800s. Our expert tour guides regale you with stories from this lawless period, including Portland’s most infamous criminals, their victims, and the ghosts they’ve left behind.
The tour starts and finishes with a beer tasting at the award winning Kells Irish Restaurant + Brewery. Each guest will sample 6 craft beers (5 ounces each). The tour is rated mildly spooky and is a 50:50 mixture of history and hauntings.
