Boston's drag bar is haunted?

New England Folklore lays out the evidence that Jacque's has a ghost or two.

Via Robert David Sullivan, who offers up some other Boston bars that might be more fitting for hauntings.

Good thing you never went to ManRay.

ManRay was Child's play. You should have went to Playland on Essex Street or the Carnival on Boylston back in the glory days.

It's not that bad.. I remember going before the batchorette parties took over that place. It was a fun place for campy drag.

Mayray was pretty tame too but I've yet to find a gay bar that really surprised me with the clientele. Except maybe one or two bars in NYC with rauchy clientele.

Interesting article tho. I read it before adam posted it.

If Jacque's is scary, I hope to god you never went in Playland or the Safari Club.

However, if I were going to nominate a candidate for haunted gay bars, I think the Napolean (RIP) would have been my choice.

That place wasn't really a club tho.. it was a bath house that was disguised as a club.

I wonder what happened to the guys who owned it. They had a club/bath house in Florida too, if I remember correctly. They had ambitions.

Make sure you check your trick out in bright light before taking him home for the night. That Abercrombie "twink" is actually a 60 year old once you see him under a street light.

Something wrong with a 60 year old? Ageism in the gay "community" is rampant.

A 60 year old hitting on a 22 year old is just down right creepy.

Said 60 year old shopping for clothes in Abercrombie is pedophilic.

I once wandered in during the day and it is way worse at 2pm!

That said, no drag queen ever had her throat slashed there, so I guess it's better than some bars.

If you're looking for a good time, Boston's hottest club is Jacque's. It has everything: massacres, witch hangings, pirate executions, a room-full of people with kimono-related anxieties, the Boston Switcharoo [that thing where a major league baseball player shows up to the wrong bar downtown and finds himself crying in a tub six hours later].
