Denver’s oldest gentlemen’s club, now a late-night dispensary, is apparently haunted — and you can take the tour
Where weed, strippers and ghosts meet for a killer haunted tour
It was a cool and quiet night when I pulled into the parking lot of Shotgun Willie’s. Dark clouds drifted slowly over an orange moon — it was the perfect night for a haunted tour.
Shotgun Willie’s is renowned in Denver for many things. Namely, for its beautiful female entertainers and the dimly lit western atmosphere, but also for being totally female-owned and operated, and for being the city’s oldest gentlemen’s club.
It’s an establishment, no doubt, and a locally distinguished one at that.

Built over top of the condemned remains of the old strip club, this pistol-shaped dispensary doesn’t just look like the kind of place that might be haunted, with its old western wall paper, hidden doors, iron barred jail cell, and vintage bank teller check-out station — apparently, it’s actually haunted.
