AAA Editor Notes

Bird Cage Theatre, 6th and Allen sts., was built in 1881 and remains virtually unchanged, with the original fixtures, furnishings and interior still intact. A combination theater, saloon and dance hall, the theater was known in its heyday as the bawdiest nightspot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast. The refrain from the song “Only a Bird in a Gilded Cage” was inspired by this opera house saloon. Various ghost tours of the building are offered. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
$10; $9 (ages 60+ and military with ID); $8 (ages 8-18); $28 (family). Adult ghost tour $20 (ages 18+). Family ghost tour $20 (ages 12+). Prices may vary; phone ahead.
Hours: Daily 9-6. Family ghost tours depart at 6:30 p.m. Adults-only ghost tour departs at 8 p.m. Closed Christmas.
