When the Ghost Tour first started the restaurant, Avenue One, was open at 1921 First Avenue in the Butterworth Mortuary. One afternoon customers sitting at the bar watched in horror as bottles of wine flew on their volition across the room. The space had housed Cafe Sophie as well. Stories about the old Sophie are legendary. Several other restaurants all opened at 1921 and struggled to stay alive. The space has been empty since 2007, fueling rumors that it is one of the most haunted locations in the NW. Now a new restaurant is under construction. The ornate balconies are being restored, the original mouldings repaired. We have been unable to go inside for years, but now we do on this special tour thanks to Kells Irish Pub.
Kells is an incredible bar with great beer, music and soccer on the big screen. It is also in the lower two levels of the Mortuary. Kells has been the subject of numerous TV shows including Ghost Adventures and My Ghost Story. Want to spend some time in Seattle's famous haunted mortuary? See the Chapel in its raw form? This is the tour for you. We will be giving a modified Market Ghost Tour and spending time inside the Chapel. You are welcome to bring your audio recorders with you on this tour.

Check in at 1499 Post Alley before your tour. You will be asked to sign a waiver when attending the Mortuary Tour because the building you will be entering belongs to a third party. While the building is considered to be one of the most haunted in the northwest the waiver is because it is under construction and there is limited electricity inside the areas we are going to.
Things To Bring
Bring cameras, umbrellas when it's raining & wear comfortable shoes. Bring any ghost hunting equipment to this tour. Although mostly covered, please come prepared for northwest weather. There are some stairs and one hill. The Pike Place Market is a nine acre district filled with cobblestones: high heels, strollers, and walkers are problematic. No open shoes. Signature is required on a waiver at the start of this tour.
No coupons, groupons or discounts can be applied to this Chapel Tour.

The Chapel Tour schedule is subject to change based on the season, construction in the building and holidays.
Please check in our espresso shop at 1499 Post Alley which is visible from First and Pike and before the Gum Wall. At First and Pike you will find Rachel the Pig, the Pike Place Fish Market (where they throw the fish) and the iconic Public Market Center sign. Lower Post Alley is below. The restaurant, IL Bistro, is on the Alley. We are just past IL Bistro and visible from the top of the Alley. If you go past our shop you will find the Gum Wall.
Because some of this tour is exterior, please come prepared for the weather. The Chapel can also be very cold. If you are intoxicated you will be asked to leave the tour and will not receive a refund. There are plenty of haunted bars to go in after the tour. Your guide does not follow a script, so each tour can be different. While we all have core stories the guide is free to change the route and some content to suit the group attending.
