Historical rumor has it that in 1814, Andrew Jackson and Jean Lafitte planned the defense of New Orleans against the British in the bar. Lafitte's ghost allegedly still haunts the building to this day. A number of celebrities have also visited the bar in the last two centuries.
Old Absinthe House in "Must and Shall"Edit
In August 1942, FBS Neil Michaels visited the Original Absinthe House as part of an investigation into an uprising against the United States. He was given contact information by the stripper, Lucy. The following night, the Original Absinthe House was torched as a warning to anyone who helped Michaels or the federals in their investigation. Lucy was among the dead.
The name "Original Absinthe House" is apparently unique to "Must and Shall."
