O'Banion's Tavern in Seattle.

This is one of the Seattle bars that serial killer Ted Bundy frequented during the 1970s.

At the time, the building was home to a bar called O'Banion's. These days, it is the location of the Laughs Comedy Club.

During her interviews with the police, Bundy's girlfriend, Liz Kloepfer, told detectives that Ted and his neighbor, John Neeler, visited O'Banion's Tavern a couple of times per month.

They also visited two other bars called Dante's Tavern and the Pipeline Tavern.

It is worth noting that O'Banion's and Dante's were situated just a couple of feet away from each other. Because of their close proximity to one another, it is likely that Ted regularly switched between the two.

Ted Bundy's second victim Lynda Ann Healy was drinking in this bar shortly before her abduction. This has led to speculation that Bundy spotted Lynda here and decided to follow her back to her house.

The Pipeline Tavern.

According to Liz, Ted and his neighbor also visited the Pipeline Tavern to pick up girls.

At the time, the Pipeline was situated at 1540 Eastlake Avenue.
