Julep’s - Real Richmond Haunt
Julep’s is a trendy Richmond restaurant specializing in Southern cuisine and pulling from influences in Atlanta, Charleston, New Orleans, and Savannah. The building was not always an eatery, however; back in 1826 it was a weapons shop owned by James McNaught. One day an apprentice gunsmith named Daniel Denoon got into a spat with McNaught and was shot dead on the premises. Denoon’s spirit seems to have remained inactive for the better part of two centuries, but in 2003 the restaurant owners began a remodeling project which knocked down the staircase Denoon fell down when he died. In its place a storage closet was built, and ever since strange noises and thumping sounds have been heard emanating from the space.
