Rumors of hauntings began after the Eastland disaster on July 24th, 1915. The ship was still docked in the Chicago River when it tipped over. 800 people perished. The building that is now Excalibur served as a temporary morgue for the people who had died on the ship. (and Harpo studios )

During The Great Chicago Fire of 1871, two women had taken refuge in the building that was standing before Excalibur was built. Many believe the two women died in the building and their spirits have remained. 

Some of the paranormal activity includes glasses and beer bottles breaking by themselves, cold spots and ghostly apparations like 'The Lady In Red'. Present and past employees claim to have heard screaming in the club. Some of them say the screams sound like a familiar voice calling their names. The Dome Room of Excalibur is said to be the most haunted place inside the club. The club exploits the rumors of hauntings by having a 'Houdini Sceance' on Halloween and allowing ghost tours inside the building. Excalibur Night Club has been featured on the TV shows Sightings and America's Most Haunted Places.

 It is the site of a weekly theater show about the paranormal, Supernatural Chicago, hosted by its resident "necromancer," Neil Tobin. A Houdini seance is also presented there annually by Tobin and the Chicago Assembly of the Society of American Magicians.
