New Orleans, Louisiana
New Orleans might be the haunted bar capital of the world, and Jean Lafitte might just be the mayor. Lafitte's origins remain unclear, but he was, by all accounts… multifaceted. Among his titles were entrepreneur, sailor, spy, "hero of the Battle of New Orleans," spy, scoundrel, and smuggler. Hey, you can be more than one thing! But at the candlelit, ancient bar that bears his name, he's also added "creepy spectral form hanging out by the fireplace or chilling around the ladies' room" to his impressive resume. The place is allegedly haunted by other spirits -- look out for the extremely lady dressed in 1700s clothes -- but the building's namesake is its most prevalent… when he's there. See, Lafitte is rumored to show up at other bars in the area as well. As in life, in death he's a very busy man.
