The Odditorium Bar - Asheville, NC


I'm not much of a drinker, but when the Odditorium bar opened in Asheville, NC I was psyched.  As I have discussed here in the past I am a huge fan of freak shows.  With a name like Odditorium, it was bound to exhibit some strange an unusual things.  I went to the bar in 2013 and honestly was a bit disappointed.   There collection of oddities at that time was very small.....

They had a two headed duck which was admittedly really cool....


Some post-mortem portraits of little kids, which is a bit dark, even for my tastes.....


A dummy with a monocle.....


And a freaky Carol Channing doll.......


Of course, I should have cut them some slack, as they had just opened.  I returned recently and the bar was much improved.  They had added some really cool murals on the outside.


This mural features both the King of Freaks, Johnny Eck and the Siamese Hilton Sisters..........


And check out this weird Elephantapus........


Now I just want to see the SyFy original movie.........

Inside, the collection of oddities had grown.  Most of the collection is for sale.  Here is a big gross petrified hairball....


Their collection included a lot of nasty things in jars......


Including One Eyed Willie the Rabbit....


They had some taxidermy as well.......




I must say 250 is a good price for a stuffed coyote.....

They have a cabinet full of random creepy doll heads.....


Their Fiji Merman was a little cartoons for my liking.....


Of course I am probably the only person in the world who rates Fiji Mermen..........

Here is "Kevin", their human Skeleton....


But my favorite object had to be Amy the Possum Dragon.....


Which is the perfect center piece for a Southern Freak Bar............

Definitly check it out if you are in the area.....Oh yeah, their drinks are good too...........
