Ghost Adventures Crew

The Viper Room on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip is an iconic nightclub with a dark, haunting past. What spirits remain in the former hangout of Hollywood’s elite?

Step Inside

The music venue is recognized as the place where 23-year-old actor River Phoenix collapsed from a lethal drug overdose in 1993, the same year it opened.

Mysteries Abound

Back in 2001, former co-owner Anthony Fox went missing during a time when a financial dispute related to the property was in full swing. His disappearance has never been solved, but his car was located sometime later in Santa Clara, Calif.

The Investigation Begins

What happened to his body? Current general manager, Maci Jane, says she’s heard a few theories.

Criminal Past

But that’s not all: Gangsters Bugsy Siegel and Mickey Cohen gambled in that same building at the height of their reign.

Skeletons in the Closet

The building has skeletons – maybe literally.

Order Up

Cashier Rita Flora has experienced an entity firsthand, and you won’t believe how it’s contacted her. (Hint: it’s beyond a simple brush of the hand.)

Terrible Scares

Bar manager and musician Tommy Black says when he’s in the downstairs section of the bar, he feels a constant pressure on his chest. He also claims to have witnessed glasses fly off the bar with no known cause.

   

Open Portal

 Zak describes the site as an “open portal to many things that we can’t even fathom.”

 

Drinks First

Yet the drinks continue to flow – dare to visit?  

Ready?

The Viper Room has it all: unsolved mysteries, terrifying activity and plenty of untold stories. You’re not going to want to miss it. Tune in Saturday at 9|8c!
