Since its grand opening on May 1, 1905, the Seelbach Hotel has stood as one of Louisville, Kentucky's most lavish and luxurious establishments. It has hosted an array of notable figures, from U.S. Presidents and legendary actors to notorious bootleggers and mobsters. As a result, the hotel is steeped in lore, with some claiming it was here that F. Scott Fitzgerald first encountered the inspiration for Jay Gatsby in the underground Rathskeller barroom, while others say Al Capone used the tunnels beneath the hotel to evade the law. Yet the most notorious resident of the Seelbach is the mysterious spirit of a lady in blue, an apparition as integral to its storied history as the men who helped build it.
