36th St. Lounge in Wyoming, MI

by Jenn Altman
(Grand Rapids, MI, USA)

I've been working at this bar on & off for years (only off because it's closed down a couple times), and have heard/seen weird stuff many times. I'm not the only one, either. Many of my co-workers & some of our customers have, too.


Last week a couple of our regulars actually caught stuff (orbs) on their digital camera.

I have heard voices, weird knocking noises inside the pint cooler, a sound like a bowling ball dropping and rolling across our stage, etc.

I've also seen the apparition of a man in the basement (near where the customers took the pictures, actually). Other things that have happened to my co-workers include:

-my old boss, Juls, saw a man walk through our lobby after closing. She sent the bouncers looking through the whole building. Nothing.

-a former bartender was grabbing beers from the back cooler and was repeatedly tapped on the shoulder. Irritated, she turned to yell at someone. No one was there.

-a huge pot of spaghetti sauce upended itself while sitting flat on the floor of another cooler.
-lights turn on and off sometimes randomly (though that could be faulty wiring...).

-Once, while I was opening, someone said my name right behind me. I was the only one in the building at the time, though it was plain as day.

I found out, after having been there awhile, that a former worker was shot to death in the basement office, although people have described him, and it doesn't seem to be the man that Julz and I saw. So I wonder what else happened there...?

Richie was the one shot and killed at the bar. Lenny (my father) died from brain cancer. Richie was shot by a former employee's son.

Info NEW

The man who was shot in the bar was (as previously stated!) Richie. He was shot while in a BASEMENT office. Yes, they do hang a stocking for him.
I have also heard what sounds like a bowling ball on the stage. I've seen someone walk across the dance floor AFTER close when the employees were behind the bar and in the kitchen on a few occassions.

Lenny
by: Anonymous

Lenny died from brain cancer according to a former employee of his. The man that was shot was a bartender and manager. He was shot by a family member of another employee (inside job). This happened upstairs not in the basement.

It wasn't Lenny. He died from a heart attack. It was one of his employees.
