There’s a ghostly story they like to tell about Speakeasy, in Austin’s Warehouse District.
Ghosts have haunted its historic home in the Kreisel building since July 1916, when a fire trapped a fireman and two women in its antique elevator (now suspended above the main music stage). Most patrons today take it easy on the rooftop terrace while watching the downtown scene in transition. ♣
Ever seen the Speakeasy ghosts? After how many drinks?
