Bay Area bar haunting has at its heart a famous unsolved mystery
The ghost of Sweeney’s Grill and Bar in Brentwood is, by everyone’s opinion, likable.
The ghost is believed to be that of a former saloon owner named James Torre. He is known to be seated at the end of the bar and likes to leave 11 cents on the top of the bar. Sometimes it is said that he lingers near the site of an old poker table, where the story takes a darker turn: this is the exact spot where Torre was allegedly murdered.
