Famous Haunted Places --The Moss Beach Distillery

Updated on March 11, 2011

The Moss Beach Distillery, Moss Beach, CA

One of the great things about eating at the Moss Beach Distillery in Moss Beach, CA is that they embrace the fact that they are haunted. The employees are encouraged to discuss the ghost and they even give you a four-page hand out that details their resident spirits in detail. To make your dining experience more entertaining, the owners have rigged up the stained glass chandlers above the bar to move seemingly of their own accord.

The NBC TV series, “Unsolved Mysteries” has done a segment about the Blue Lady who reportedly haunts the restaurant. Famous psychic, Sylvia Brown visited the infamous eatery and not only contacted the spirit of the Blue Lady, but also the spirit of her lover, his other lover, and an elderly woman.

Many mysterious and unexplained events have occurred at the restaurant, including: items floating through the air, sounds of things being moved over the floor when no one else was in the place, computer glitches that dated everything 1927 the year the restaurant opened as “Frank’s Roadhouse,” doors being blocked by cases of wine that no one claims to have put there, employees hearing their names whispered when no one is with them, faucets being turned on by unseen hands, lights that flicker, doors that slam, and the Lady in Blue appearing to guests outside on the cliffs and inside in the rest rooms.

The Legend: 80 years ago a beautiful young woman met a handsome man and feel passionately in love with him. The man was a piano player at a local bar. The woman always dressed in blue and was already married to someone else. The two lovers had secret rendezvous at the Marine View Beach Hotel that used to be located next to the Distillery. During a November storm the Lady in Blue died in a horrible car accident near their favorite meeting place. She died without knowing that her piano player lover was also having an affair with another local woman. His second lover discovered the man’s betrayal and flung herself off the cliffs into the ocean. All three spirits have been seen at the popular restaurant.

I ate at the Distillery in May of 2008 and took several photos of the inside and outside of the building. I sensed the spirit of a woman on the rocks that can bee seen from the restaurant, but nothing else. Whether you believe in the existence of the Blue Lady and her spirit friends or not, it’s an interesting place to eat. Most of the tables offer lovely views of the ocean and they build fires outside on the first floor patio to ward off the chill of the ocean breezes. If you go there, bring plenty of money as one of their entries (steak) is $49.00! No steak is worth that price!

      Yep, it's all rigged. I saw that episode. I kept waiting to see them find the ringers, and they didn't disappoint me--they found them all. Ha-Ha

      Yes...T.A.P.S. went there, under the premise of being called to do an actual investigation, and left in disgust at finding the rigged chandeliers, and scolded the owner for wasting their time!
