6. Grab a Drink with a Ghost
Calgary’s Hose and Hound pub is the HQ for ghostly monkey business. Serving as a fire hall from 1907 to 1952, the building played host to Calgary’s first fire chief, Cappy Smart. The chief adored animals and kept a horse and monkey on site as part of his menagerie. After an unprovoked attack on a small child, Barney the monkey was put down. Following Barney’s death, the establishment became a hotbed of paranormal activity. Firehouse and pub employees have witnessed objects sailing through the air, slamming doors, electrical disturbances and other unexplained mischief-making within the structure’s walls.
