According to urban legends and modern folklore, the location allegedly houses a “gateway to hell” and is haunted by spirits including Pearl Bryan, whose corpse was found in a field several miles from the site in Fort Thomas, Kentucky.
Unsubstantiated 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, sometime in the 1930s a pregnant dancer named “Johanna” committed suicide by hanging in a dressing room at the Latin Quarter club, which then operated inside the building currently housing Bobby Mackey’s.
Rumor has it that this deed was carried out after her father murdered her lover, a singer at the club, though investigations have failed to find police reports of this event ever having taken place. Furthermore, scholarly research into property records, newspapers, and court files has failed to substantiate most of the fanciful claims made regarding the sanguine history of the location, and no connection between the site of Bobby Mackey’s and the Pearl Bryan murder has ever been established.
Most who have studied the Bryan slaying have concluded any claims to either Bryan’s death or dismemberment at the Wilder, Kentucky structure are unsupported by a foundation of hard fact, and place these popular accounts into the realm of the tall tale.
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 roadhouse that took on various names, such as The Brisbane, until he purchased it in 1978.
With all this horrific history, it’s no wonder why Bobby Mackey’s holds the title for most haunted location. Here is a video of Carl Lawson – Bobby Mackey’s handy-man, who seemed to be possessed during a video taped exorcism.
