O'Banion's Tavern in Seattle

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

It is located at 5220 Roosevelt Way NE in Seattle, Washington.

At the time, the building was home to a tavern 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 few times each month.

They also frequented 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. Because of their close proximity, it is likely that Bundy regularly switched between the two.

Inside Dante's


This photograph shows the inside of Dante's Tavern, which no longer exists.

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

The Pipeline Tavern


Kloepfer said that Bundy and his neighbor also visited the Pipeline Tavern to pick up girls.

The Pipeline Tavern was located at 1540 Eastlake Avenue.

These days, the area looks completely different. The current building was constructed in 2004.
