The historic port city of Alexandria, VA is famous for its cobblestone streets and centuries-old architecture. Our Nightly Spirits Haunted Pub Tour will show you the darker side of the early American history that lurks around every corner. Your costumed guide will take you on a walking route along the riverbanks of the Potomac, through dark alleyways, past ominous rowhouses, and into the ghostliest taverns of Old Town Alexandria. You will enjoy sipping on spirits named after the most famous local ghosts while hearing accounts of warfare, treachery, and tragic love stories. Whether you join us for stories of the past, the paranormal, or the pubs, we’ve got you covered!
What to Expect: You will be taken on a 2-2.5 hour walking tour that will explore some of the most well-known haunted locations in Alexandria, VA. The pubs that we visit on this tour can be small and crowded at times, so our guides will tell most of the stories outside or along the way on this tour. Each stop has a full bar with plenty of options for you to purchase some liquid courage. The tour will end just a couple blocks from where we start, which allows for easy access to some of the other great bars that Old Town Alexandria has to offer. You will visit up to 3 haunted bars* so there will be plenty of liquid courage available for purchase as you face the former residents of Old Town.
*Nightly Spirits does not guarantee a certain number of bars or a specific route, but our guides are equipped with plenty of chilling ghost stories to ensure you have a fun evening.
The purchase of alcohol is not included or required.
All tour guests must be 21+.
This is a walking tour that covers a little under a mile in total. Because we do visit bars in historic buildings, this tour is not recommended for those with mobility restrictions.
