Wilder,Bobby Mackey's Music World

According to urban legends and modern folklore, the location allegedly houses a "gateway to the under world" and is haunted by spirits including Pearl Bryan, whose corpse was found in a field several miles from the site in Fort Thomas,Kentucky. Unsubstantiatied stories include Bryan's murderers being Satanists who, according to fanciful tales, cursed the location and vowed to haunt everyone involved in prosecuting the case. Also according to urban legend, a dancer named Johanna committed suicide after her father murdered her lover, a singer at the club.

According to Bobby Mackey, the site was originally used as a slaughterhouse in the early 19th century and later torn down for construction of a road house that took on various names, such as The Brisbane, until he purchased it in 1978.
