Haunted Louisiana Honorable Mentions Part 2

(PART 1)  (PART 3)  (PART 4)

The Alibi Bar (New Orleans)

811 Iberville Street, New Orleans, LA 70112 (29.955001,-90.06934)

This popular hangout spot was built sometime around 1830 and was connected to the old D.H. Holmes building. It served as private residences and apartments for most of its tenure. Legends tell that the attic area was used to hide slaves during the days of the Underground Railroad. Stories recount that several young children perished in the attic but there is no verifiable proof of this taking place. Several years ago, an employee was stabbed to death behind the bar. These two incidents are said to fuel the haunted tails at the Alibi Bar. Objects have literally flown off the bar and staff members have seen dark shadows and unexplainable black mist, appearing in the shape of a human figure.

Flannagan’s Pub (New Orleans)

625 Saint Philip Street, New Orleans, LA 70116 (29.960254,-90.06223)

One of my favorite local bars to hang out, Flannagan’s Pub is perfect if you are wanting to get away from the tourists and the obnoxious college students on spring break. Often a meet-up spot for many of the haunted history tours, the pub is also said to be haunted by the spirit of a young woman who killed herself here years ago. I highly recommend you check this pub out for some great food and a nice cold Abita Amber.

Hotel de la Poste – W New Orleans Hotel (New Orleans)

316 Chartres Street, New Orleans, LA 70130 (29.954547,-90.066254)

Unexplainable cold spots and the apparitions of a good looking lady, Diane, and a former carriage driver, Gerald, have been encountered here. Once called the Hotel de la Poste, it is now named the W New Orleans Hotel.

Kerry’s Irish Pub (New Orleans)

331 Decatur Street, New Orleans, LA 70130 (29.952402,-90.066827)

This local watering hole has been serving the community well for over twenty years. After getting your fill on a few pints of Guinness, keep an eye out for another form of spirits. Staff members have reported hearing disembodied footsteps and voices when no one else is around.

La Maison Marigny (New Orleans)

1421 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA 70116 (29.964388,-90.060355)

Guests who have stayed at this cozy little inn near the quieter end of Bourbon Street have reported waking up in the middle of the night to the smell of food cooking. A select few have been woke up with an invisible kiss on the cheek from an unseen entity!

Lanaux Mansion (New Orleans)

547 Esplanade Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70116 (29.962816,-90.058789)

The home was built in 1879 by local attorney Charles Andrew Johnson. Although a respected member of society, he lived here alone until his death. In his will, he would bequeath the home to his partner’s daughter, Marie Andry Lanaux, whom he had loved in secret. Today, guests have reported seeing the apparition of Mr. Johnson

The Lookout Inn (New Orleans)

833 Poland Avenue, New Orleans LA 70117 (29.962241,-90.032042)

Originally an actual lookout point, hence the name, visitors to the inn have experienced unexplainable cold spots and the sounds of spectral parties going on during early morning hours. Some have rumored that an unverifiable murder also took place in the home years ago.
