Bobby Mackey’s Music World is a honky-tonk nightclub located in Wilder, Kentucky, United States. The club has a controversial history and is known for its paranormal activity. Some even calling it the “portal to hell”.

The building that houses Bobby Mackey’s Music World was originally built in the 1850s as a slaughterhouse and meatpacking plant. In the early 20th century, it was converted into a speakeasy during Prohibition and later served as a gambling hall and brothel.

In the 1970s, country musician Bobby Mackey purchased the building and converted it into a honky-tonk nightclub. The club quickly became popular among country music fans and local residents.

Bobby Mackey’s Music World has been the site of several tragic events and is rumored to be haunted by several spirits, including a young girl named Johanna who allegedly died on the property. Many people claim to have experienced paranormal activity while inside the club, including disembodied voices, strange odors, and physical sensations.

The club’s controversial history and alleged paranormal activity have made it a popular destination for ghost hunters and fans of the paranormal. It has been featured on several TV shows, including Ghost Adventures and A Haunting, and is the subject of a book called Hell’s Gate by Doug Hensley.
