The Children's Hour

Not only 1920's gangsters and ladies of the night haunt the Holly Street Bar & Grill but among this motley crew children have been known to haunt the Holly Street Bar & Grill.

In the courtyard that leads into the "Insight Yoga Studio" the voices and giggles of children have been heard. On the grand stairway, people have reported seeing a little girl with red hair playing on the staircase.

And in the patio /courtyard where brunch is served on Sunday, people have reported seeing a little girl with red hair looking down on them from a window on the second floor.

Also, if you enjoy a drink at the bar, women have reported seeing a man dressed like an old time gangster lifting a glass and toasting them in the bar mirror. But when they turn around to see him he is not there!

Spooky don't you think?

it's funny that one of the scariest things that they use often in movies (and even some songs!) is the sound of children laughing. that shouldn't be scary, should it?! lol. i'm enjoying your ghostly tours, sweetie! *hugs* btw, how are you feeling lately, since your hospital stay and diagnosis?

Ash said...

Spooky...yes!

Princess in Galoshes said...

Creepy...! Have you ever seen that show "Ghost Hunters"? Maybe you could call them and have them come out and do a diagnosis!

What about the yoga studio? No spirits of ladies of the night doing downward dog, or anything?

How sweet of you to ask about my health Greggo! I'm on a special BLAND diet but my health is greatly improving. I'm so thin (which is fashionable in this town of West Hollywood) but my doctor wants me to gain some weight. Princess, no signs of ghosts in the yoga studio but they burn sage in it every day and sage does scare ghosts away. So I'm told.

spacedlaw said...

No, not really.
Glad to know you are doing OK, even if I feel for the bland diet part.

I've read that electromagnetic disturbances can cause mass hallucination or antoher theory is that nature can record impressions and images from the past.

There are so many dimensions that we can barely concieve of. I'm surprised that people don't see more psychic crossover and apparitions.

I'm sorry to hear you have not been well ... I hope you are soon better.
I'm sure that time and space intertwine at points to let us glimpse lives before/beyond.

Rachelle said...

Wow, really great ghost stories! Scary and interesting too...

When I make it out to LA, you'll have to refer me to a good yoga studio!

Sorry to hear you've not been well, best wishes for a speedy recovery!

i think people who have children with red hair should stop taking their kids to that place. they're scaring everyone when they run off to play on the staircase and on the second floor...

...sorry, i was born a skeptic.

Yoga Gal said...

Minijonb my love, I'm a skeptic too I just reported what people are on record of saying what they saw. I just report the facts I don't make them up!

Kaylbug was laughing and playing in my girlfriend's old house.. she was perhaps 3 1/2... and we were staying there for a bit .We knew the house was haunted ( I was entertained by slamming doors , bad odors and knocking..)... but that day she abruptly quit laughing and started screaming and crying about the white wish..
Later she was crying in her sleep and whimpering about those poor poor babies... We had to leave because she could not get any peace nor good sleep.

All Kayli would say was something bad happened to the poor babies.

My friends did not have any kids nor were there ever any children in that house before or after Kayli while they owned it.

I believe Children are more open and aware... although even grown-ups can carry the "gift" .. although not many are as brilliant at it...

Always fun to visit your blog@ Thank you!

Hey yoga gal! Hope you gain the weight the docs want you to...

Is sage the same as frankincense? Smoke from frankinsense and incense sticks is supposed to ward of negative energy and evil spirits...

claytonia vices said...

About being a skeptic, I was a big skeptic until I witnessed some thing myself... so now I am more open minded...
