Crews film 'haunted' Shaker's Cigar Bar in Milwaukee for new Netflix series
MILWAUKEE -- A bar known in Milwaukee's Walker's Point neighborhood known for its 'haunted' reputation could be featured in a new Netflix series.
 
A Netflix film crew was at Shaker’s Cigar Bar Sunday. A post on the bar's Facebook page says Netflix has chosen Shaker's, as well as the Cream City Cannibal Tour, as subjects  for a new program on the 8 most unusual adventure tours.
The Shaker's building was built in the 1800’s and was a speakeasy, cemetery and brothel in its past. The bar was used extensively as a location site for a 1990's produced Warner Brothers movie "Dillinger," according to their website .
 
Shaker's Cigar Bar currently offers tours of its "haunted" past. Get more information here.
