Create an itinerary including Bird Cage Theatre
Originally built in 1881 as a theater, saloon, gambling parlor, and brothel, Bird Cage Theatre features original decor, including 120 bullet holes in the walls. Here you can visit rooms that have been untouched for over 100 years, and be in the same bedroom where Wyatt Earp stayed. See the infamous bird cages suspended on the wall just below the ceiling, where ladies of the night entertained their clients. In 1882, The New York Times called it "the wildest, wickedest night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast." Ask the staff for a ghost tour.

  • Always a fun experience. Took my daughters on the ghost tour they had a great time. They also have the self guided tour that is cheaper but we enjoyed learning all about the birdcage and tombstone. So much history. Staff is very friendly. Trish knows so much of the history and it is always great to hear everything. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
  • This was a fun tour! The tours are an hour and a half long, including the 30 minutes darkness time to 'welcome the ghosts to make their presence known'. Our guide, Karen, was knowledgeable, humorous and a delight. Highly recommend this tour. The history of the Bird Cage is interesting and you'll even see evidence of some of the lawlessness from history (1880's bullet slugs in walls and the bar).
