Haunted Regina - Bart's on Broad

Bart's on Broad was a bar and nightclub in the downtown area, and has since closed. However, when Bart's was open, it was rumoured to have been haunted. The main bar and archway inside of Bart's is over 100 years old and came from Butte, Montana. It is rumoured to be haunted by the spirit of Kid Letowsky, a man who was killed by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in Butte, Montana. The bar itself is from Butte; the bullet hole that was used to kill Letowsky is still in the bar.

Haunted Regina - The Assiniboia Club

1925 Victoria Avenue is home to the Assiniboia Club; as well as Crave, a wine bar . The Assiniboia Club is Regina's premier private social club. Years ago, the Assiniboia Club was a private gentlemen’s club and women were prohibited from entering. It is rumoured that back in the day's of "men only", a local prostitute was murdered in the club and is said to haunt the building to this day.
