Many locals know the best place to experience a one-on-one encounter with some of the resident ghosts and ghouls thathaunt the balconies of Haunted New Orleans. Haunted New Orleans Tours has created a definitive guide to some of the city’s spookiest and most ghost-ridden balconies where specters make contact with the living on an almost daily basis.

The following list of haunted balcony locations are those most frequently reported to Haunted New Orleans Tours as where ghost are sighted AND most often ghost photos happen frequently. So when in the haunted French Quarter, look up and you might just sight a ghost!

"Top Ten Most Haunted Balconies in New Orleans"


1. Lalaurie House

1140 Royal Street, that is notorious even by the bizarre traditions of the French Quarter. Built in 1831, the three-story edifice was the home of Dr. Louis Lalaurie and his fashionable wife Delphine, esteemed for her elegant balls as well as for her charitable work among the sick and the poor. 1834, when a fire broke out in the Lalaurie residence. Firemen smashed open a locked interior door and came upon a scene surpassing horror: There, chained and suffocating in the heat and smoke, were seven starved and severely beaten slaves. Upstairs, in a sort of macabre laboratory, the fire patrol found more slaves, some dead, others barely alive with limbs amputated or purposefully deformed. Preserved organs and other body parts completed the picture.

 

Money mysterious photos occur often at the Lalularie house. Balcony ghost photos and haunted videos usually show orbs, strands of mist and the figures of a ghost or two walking it's legnth.




2. The Sultans Palace, Gardette-LePrete Haunted House

One of the most mysterious ghosts in the French Quarter is that of the “Sultan”. He reportedly roams the halls of the four-story house at 716 Dauphine St., on the corner of Dauphine and Orleans Ave.

Gardette-LePrete Haunted Hous, this impressive domicile was the New Orleans home in the 1870s to a mysterious middle easterner who was rumored to maintain a harem. He and his companions were all found hacked to pieces one morning, some say at the request of the angry sultan to whom the harem actually belonged.
Le Pretre Haunted Mansion
In 1839 Jean Baptiste Le Pretre bought this 1836 Greek Revival house at 716 Dauphine St. and added the romantic cast-iron galleries. The house is the subject of a real-life horror story: Sometime in the 19th century, a Turk, supposedly the brother of a sultan, arrived in New Orleans and rented the Le Pretre house. He was conspicuously wealthy, and his entourage included many servants and more than a few beautiful young girls -- all thought to have been stolen from the sultan.

Rumors quickly spread about the situation, even as the home became the scene of lavish entertainment with guest lists that included the cream of society. One night, shrieks came from inside the house; the very next morning, neighbors entered and found the tenant's body lying in a pool of blood surrounded by the bodies of the young beauties. The mystery remains unsolved to this very day. Local ghost experts say you can hear exotic music and ghostly shrieks on the right night.

 

 

3. Cafe Lafite in Exile

Lafitte's is the oldest Gay bar in the country and has a long and interesting history. During his years in New Orleans, Tennessee Williams used to frequent Lafitte's. And his ghost is said to turn up quite often sitting at the end of the bar sipping on a cocktail.

New Orleans most celebrated Carnival event the Bourbon Street Awards were hosted by Lafitte's until the early 80's when massive crowds forced them to move from Bourbon Street to St. Ann and Burgundy. Wood Enterprises continues to host the awards at Rawhide 2010.

Lafitte's also features two floors of music and video.The Dance floor is said to be a popular place to spot a ghost or while shooting Pool. The ghost of a man the regulars call Mr. Bubby is said to be a frisky ghost and has been known to pinch a but or two.

Many say the actual ghost of Truman Capotes' ghost haunts the small stairwell leading to the second floor and and very often his ghost has been captured on video and film. Others say he even strikes up a a very cute conversation as they meet him on the stairs. Many orbs, strange mist and strong glows appear in photos taken here.

Downstairs you'll find the main bar. where a few ex Bartenders speak of Ghost sitting and enjoying themselves at the center bar. Upstairs you'll find a pool table and the balcony! During Carnival, because the Gay crowd dominates this part of Bourbon Street, people tend to be a little more "adventurous" in their pursuit of beads and the balcony at Lafitte's can be quite "entertaining." Many locals, Ghost hunters and tourist have reported seeing many ghost on the reported haunted New Orleans balcony that surrounds the second floor over looking Bourbon Street and Dumaine. Ghostly figures are said to walk upon it and even wave to tourist then just disapear. or hollar out at many a passerby.

Famous ghost that have been said to have been encountered or be seen near or at Cafe Lafitte in Exile are none other then Marie Laveau, Jean Lafitte and his Brother, Truman capote, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Tennesee Williams, Huey P. Long, and Louis Armstrong.

Lafitte's is popular and Haunted all year round and is open 24 hours a day.

The actual claim to being first may be questionable, but Lafitte's status as one of the French Quarter's premier gay and lesbian nightspots is beyond popular dispute.

It's also a popular spot for straight locals and the adventurous tourist, as the ceaseless crowds will attest. Legend has it that Tennessee Williams was a patron of this establishment; he followed his friend Tom Caplinger, who opened it after leaving Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop.

Lafitte In Exile was the original home of the Bourbon Street Awards, one of the most celebrated Carnival events in the gay community until massive crowds forced the relocation of the ceremony.


Both floors feature music and videos, with the main bar situated downstairs. Upstairs, there's a pool table and the club's infamous balcony, where rowdy patrons look out over this particular stretch of the Quarter and can be quite, er, flashy.
