The Dungeon is an eccentric nightclub in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The Dungeon is inspired by a mysterious New Orleans ghost story regarding the mansion at 716 Dauphine Street. It seems that during the Civil War, the French Quarter manor a block and a half away from the present location of The Dungeon was rented out to a wealthy Turk by the name of Suleyman. Upon claiming the home as his residence, Suleyman began to throw lavish parties with many of the excesses made famous in lascivious New Orleans. After a neighbor reported that the house had grown quiet for an extended period of time (imagine that), the police investigated and found that everyone in the home had been brutally murdered. It’s suspected that Suleyman’s brother, who actually was a Sultan of a middle-eastern country, had instigated the killings. Since the murders, residents have reported numerous ghost sightings inside the residence. More than a hundred years after that bizarre chain of events, The Dungeon opened up shop as an unusual tribute to the excesses of Suleyman. A battle-ax inscribed with the name of the bar hangs over the narrow opening on Toulouse Street. The bar warns patrons that they are “entering The Dungeon of the Prince.” And stepping through that slim corridor, mild claustrophobia sets in. You feel as though you’re being led to the gallows, not a bar.
