Back in the 1700s, the property where Muriel’s now stands was used as staging area for slaves that were to be sold in the area, and several of their ghosts haunt the restaurant. But, they have been mostly appeased by the owner’s blocking off a room for the ghosts and offering them a fresh loaf of bread every day. After that, the man who built the current structure as his dream home in 1789, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, committed suicide upstairs in 1814 when he best his house on a poker game and los. Today, his ghost haunts the upstairs lounge, which has been named The Séance Room in his honor. In addition, two mischievous ghosts in the bar downstairs like to shatter thrown glasses and casually trip waiters, and Muriel’s ghost herself also haunts her namesake establishment, sliding chairs on the wooden floors and performing spooky Gregorian chants in the stairways. But if this wasn’t performance enough for you, check out Muriel’s Pre-Theatre Menu, which they prepare specially on evenings that the Mahalia Jackson Theater, Le Petit Theatre, or the Southern Repertory Theater put on shows.Recommended for:
