Cuzzy’s Believes It’s Haunted

Odd things happen all the time at the North Loop’s friendly dive bar, Cuzzy’s. Mostly because, well… alcohol.

But some of the stranger things can’t be explained away so easily. Things that sober employees have encountered repeatedly over the years.

Many have come to believe that Cuzzy’s (a former brothel) is haunted. In fact, on the bar’s menu there’s a printed section urging customers to “toast the ghost,” whom they’ve named Betsy.

Long-time bartender Lynn Nieland says paranormal experts have visited and sensed multiple ghosts on the premises.

In the video at the top of this post, Lynn talks about some of her own unnerving encounters.
