The bar isn’t the only underground fixture. To get to the carriage house, you can either walk on over above ground or traverse a 53-foot (16.15m) tunnel.

According to the New York Post, a woman by the name of Ruth I. Kolpin Rubison bought the original property after first renting it in 1963, and built the second home with all sorts of additions.

Ron Petersen Sr, the late owner’s son, told the Joplin Globe his mother saw the carriage house as a place she could “convalesce” and built it with her age in mind, the New York Post reported. That’s why there’s elevator access to all three floors.

Perhaps slightly more modern in style, the carriage house has an open-plan kitchen and dining area.
