ENTER GHOST

Teatro Restaurant opens inside a circa-1911 bank building. Rumour has it that a ghost haunts the wine cellar. She has also been seen sitting in the powder room. No word on what or whom she’s waiting for.

Ghost Station

City Hall Plaza, 800 Macleod Tr. SE

An LRT tunnel is abandoned underneath City Hall and can only be reached via a locked doorway inside the city parkade. It’s inaccessible to the public. Subway plans were shelved when it was decided that the original 7th Avenue line had all the passenger capacity the city needed. Twenty-nine years later, the tunnel has yet to see any light-rail action.
