On the morning of March 8, 1907,

Anastasia, licensee of the pub now known as The Taphouse was cleaning a pair of gloves with benzine, when a nearby candle set her entire body up in flames. She died a short time later from her burns, on the floor in what is now Odd Culture, and legend has it she still walks the corridors to this day, blowing out candles and slamming doors.

This Halloween weekend, in collaboration with our friends at Sydney Prop Specialists we are stoked to present HAUNTED TAPHOUSE: 3 LEVELS OF ABOMINATION!
