Coyote Joe’s Bar and Grill occupies what was once the historic Arizona Hotel. The historic Arizona Hotel was built in the notorious red light district of Whiskey Row in the late 1800’s. It operated as brothel and it is reported to have tunnels in the basement that once housed opium dens. The building is one of the few survivors of a fire in 1900 that decimated much of downtown Prescott.
Today you can find fine food and drink and billiards at Coyote Joe’s main level. Upstairs you’ll find Annie’s Attic which features daily happy hours and regularly schedules live music and DJs.
Several ghosts are said to haunt the building. The name Annie’s attic came from a ghost named Annie that whispered a warning to a relative of the owner about a fire that occurred two weeks later. The owners have also seen an apparition of a woman, perhaps one of the former employees, float across the room and pass through a wall. There are reports of voices, footsteps, and objects moving. The kitchen workers in particular have complained of flying utensils. The paranormal residents aren’t all scary. It is said that there is a spirit of a kind old woman that will cause candy to drop from a candy machine for deserving children.
