Netflix's new travel show 'Dark Tourist' features journalist David Farrier as he goes to unusual or haunted tourism spots. One such spot is Shaker's Cigar Bar right here in Milwaukee.

The Walker's Point staple has been named as one the "five most haunted bars in America," and is known for its ghost tours and haunted past.

One thing that may have attracted the 'Dark Tourist' team might be the bar's "Cream City Cannibal Tour" which takes customers through the life and death of Milwaukee serial killer Jeffery Dahmer. 

'Dark Tourist', according to Netflix, see "journalist David Farrier [visiting] unusual—and often macabre—tourism spots around the world." We hope to see Farrier go on the "Cannibal Tour", but if not, we'll just go on our own time. 

'Dark Tourist' is available to stream starting Friday, July 20.
