The Original Haunted Ghost Tour, which departs at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday, leads groups of up to 13 guests through the Victorian-era structure that once served as a speakeasy and brothel. The Haunted 2.0 Tour—which gathers Friday and Saturday night at 10 p.m.—digs deeper into the seedy underbelly of Shaker's history as a former bordello. Each option includes a Death in the Afternoon absinthe cocktail, which guests can clutch as they navigate through the basement and haunted penthouse.
Hangman Tours' knowledgeable guides lead guests on spooky jaunts through Milwaukee's haunted past. These quirky tours offer a series of historically accurate tours to suit anyone's proclivities. The flagship tour takes place inside Shaker's Cigar Bar, which since 1894 has been home to a cemetery, a speakeasy, and a brothel, and seen its share of murders. When the weather warms up in March, Hangman Tours' head outdoors with their Milwauking Dead, Whoring 20's and Cream City Cannibal tours to retrace the steps of crooked politicians, gangsters, hookers and more, that checkered the city's past.
