Haunted History

One of the most famous ghostly residents of the Old Absinthe House is a spectral bartender known as "Captain" Tony Malara. A beloved figure during his lifetime, Malara continued the tradition of serving absinthe at the bar despite its banning in the early 1900s.

After his passing, many staff members and patrons have reported seeing Malara's spirit. He appears behind the bar, cleaning glasses, and sometimes even serving drinks to unsuspecting customers. The Captain's apparition is so lifelike that some patrons don't even realize they've been served by a ghost until they learn of his story.

All candles are made with 100% domestically-grown soy wax, fragrance oils, and organic cotton-core wicks. The fragrances we use are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and are never tested on animals.

How to use

Following Candle Care helps to ensure product quality + longevity. We highly recommend following each of the following steps:

Trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.

Never attempt to trim a burning candle.

Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings in your candle jar.

The wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.

Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar during each burn to prevent tunneling.


Safety first - because candles contain a small flame, we encourage following these rules:

Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.

Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.

Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.

Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
